Nice! I have never seen a major tire shop sell life jackets and snow shoes!
The name kinda betrays the purpose of the store. It is more like a Walmart with a much larger automotive section, far fewer cloths and no grocery. It's like an AutoZone crossed with Home Hardware or a Lowes if that helps?
CT is like a "general store" (a romanticizable icon from both the US' and Canada's formation) with a larger selection Chinese goods.
So what did your ancestors say? "Look Martha, Made in Massachusetts again. We ain't buying it!"
