Interested, though I can go on my own time because we have a car. Give priority to another, unless you're short a person.

I wanna be in. No car though. Probably easier for me to get a weekday off since I've been asking for so many saturdays off LOL.

I plan on going to Ridgewood tomorrow. (Taking my grandmother back home in NJ tomorrow morning) But from what I hear, I will probably want to go back again soon! (We also have a minivan, but during the week we have our two little girls with us)

Thanks for the feedback. Don't be too concerned with the car situation yet as we will definitely carpool there once we get a headcount. I have a two seater and not the best candidate to drive however I can pickup someone and drive to meet up with others who can seat more people, for example.

Are people generally preferring saturday or can we swing a weekday? For me a weekday might be easier.

Oh man....if you guys did this on a Saturday, I'd be in. I also have a mini van and can grab 5 of you from the NJ side of the Lincoln Tunnel (I live within a mile). I also know NJ pretty well and all of these stores. I went on a little run myself on Saturday. Maybe with ample notice, I just might be able to squeeze a day off.
