WARNING....do not go to your local TSC without the guidance of another responsible adult.
On Saturday I stopped at TSC for shavings. Of course I walked by the chicks just to look. They had the same old thing with a bin of bantam silkies marked at 50% off. Happily I left with just my bag of shavings.
Sunday was such a miserable day...rain, sleet and followed by snow. Nothing to do but hang out inside and think. Forward to today. I have the day off and needed to go to the store. Of course TSC was on the way so I decided to stop just to look (ok, so I'm lying) the bin of silkies were still there at 50% off. I did a quick head count and guesstimated 30+. I found the sales clerk, luckily the one working was one of the nicer ones at this store. I offered her 50 cents a piece for the silkies and that I would take them all It took her about 3 seconds to say ok. I left there with 38 silkies and one clean/yellow leg chick.
Now yes I do have a plan and lets just say that their loss is my gain
So, it is possible to barter at a chain store.
