Just got back from the Palouse Mall (kinda like seeing Star Wars the first day it opens). The parking lot looked more like a Saturday afternoon in December than a Wednesday evening in August.
Contrary to what the Daily News had reported, Bed, Bath & Beyond opened today as well. As I figured, both stores were swarming with customers, particularly college students. The cashier at Old Navy said that earlier in the day, the lines to check out were out the door.
