I was there a couple of months ago and things hadn't changed.
I walked in and looked around for a T-5 bulb but couldn't find any. I asked for help and the kid directed me to another kid that was hunched over behind the counter looking at a skate magazine or something like that. As his youthful entourage stood behind the counter with him (including a teenage couple that I swear were going to start to make out right there behind the a calcium reactor) I asked if he had any T-5 bulbs. Riveted, almost rapt by his magazine and without even lifting his head to catch the slightest glimpse of who was asking him a question, he told me no.
Not one to be a pest, I walked out of the store and I will never return.
Just noticed! Your first post here!
