Yet another reason that Stewart's Shops of upstate New York rock, aside from the whole year round egg-nog thing and "Crumbs Along the Mohawk" ice cream.
For those of you who can't make it out it says, "This is our new pet KYLE. He grows bigger everyday. Buy your own today, only 2.59$." It is a giant version of one of those spongy dehydrated animals that we all bought as children. I remember being consistently dissapointed with the lame increase in growth those things had. Kyle, it seems, is another story.
But anyhow, Stewart's is a shining example of how a chain, even a chain of mini-marts, can maintain some semblance of character and charm. On this same day there were advertisements for sidewalk chalk written in sidewalk chalk in the parking lot which was also great. Not to mention you can get a chocolate milk "Refresher" and two buttered hard roles for 2.47$.
As a side note, I just noticed the box of Tampax in the bottom right corner of the picture. This must be the things that get bigger in liquid section of the store.
