I can hardly get my wife to go Black Friday shopping. Recently, I’ve succeeded in getting her to go to Wal-Mart. She draws the line at military stores. They are simply not set up for high volume shopping.
Today, I went out there for a Mac Book Air. I purchased one, mostly because I was there fairly early. I hate purchasing items there because of the risk they are going to run out.
The first person in line for them wanted to buy 20 of them, with the likely idea being they were going to resell them overseas. They were limited to the number of ID card holders, of which he had five with him. This is not uncommon for military stores. In some overseas locations, ration cards are used to prevent sales from U.S. military to the black market. If you’re buying $11,000 worth of a laptop computer, you’re not buying them for personal use.
