    They are building out stores all over south west Florida. As I drive the parking lots always seem to have plenty of cars. The future here looks bright. Anyone have information on other areas of the country?

    They continue to blanket the US with stores, adding 5-700 annually lately. I venture a guess they will be in the 8,000-9,000 category by years end.
    Most Sincerely, Donaldgist
