allowed her to buy product for her store at lower prices so she
could pass this on to her customers. In 1999 a second location
was added to serve the other side of town where the town was
growing. Harriet, her husband Larry, their two daughters, Maggie
and Lexie, and their son in law, Joseph, have all worked at the
store. Harriet try's hard to sell quality product at all price points
