Actually it was due to the glut of sewing machines they had. I got a ton of
cool stuff when they were overloaded with computer gear. Filled a shopping
cart full of stuff for about $50. (Ataris, a bunch of TI99/4 stuff,
Commodore 128 things, it was awesome) Alas they don't have a computer
department anymore, but they did open up their basement where everything is
under $10. Still some neat things from time to time.

Yeah, I automatically type GB when referring to hard drives these days.
