At a friend's 60th birthday party yesterday they had newspaper ads laid out from 1957

loaf of bread 19 cents
eggs 79 cents
new luxury car 2,100

79 cents!!! That's exactly what I paid for a dozen eggs last week!
No wonder 60 yrs ago nearly every farm had laying hens. They were a real money maker in 1957
By that standard in today's $ a dozen eggs should cost me about $7.99

That's right in line with their longstanding marketing/product identity strategy Fence...... "Never have anything in stock that the customer actually wants"

Y'all need a Mills Fleet Farm... "If we don't have it, you don't need it."

Although MFF was sold last year to KKR & Co (98 billion assets under management) so that might be changing.

This far south, we don't even have an Atwoods, which is only slightly better than TSC.
If I really need something, I go to the Co-Op in Bryan 99 miles north, but I've learned to call first. They don't have an online catalog.
Drove up last Thursday looking for a 250 gal sprayer tank..I shulda called ahead. They don't carry sprayer tanks bigger than 35 gallons except as a finished sprayer already mounted on a trailer with pump and nozzles.
"We can order one for ya tho, and have it here next week"

GB,

They wouldn't have had the sprayer tank, but Turner, Pierce, and Fultz in Navasota has just about everything you could want from a hardware store, and also stock tanks, hay rings, fencing, etc (although they don't have feed), if you're ever up this way.
