Yay! That's cool!!!
The LSS near me has a great selection and super friendly staff, but her prices have skyrocketed. She said that it's due to shoplifting. The owner told me that at one point, she thought she'd have to close down because of it. I'd rather see a security camera in there than the elevated prices, but it's not my call! I am lucky to have many big box stores near me, as well as the LSS mentioned above if I want something I can't find at places like M's, HL, J's or ACM.
Anyway, congrats on finding a LSS closer to you! I am sure you were super excited and it sounds like you had a fun day.
