Kadeesma, this is a small town in a financially depressed area. When the Super Walmart opened, our only 2 locally owned markets went out of business. So Walmart is it...and they don't order anything for anyone. I already asked a girl in the meat department about that. They just take what comes in.
I went ahead and ordered the gravy mix online. At .65 ea. for 20 boxes, plus $6.00 for shipping, the total came in under a dollar a box for probably a year's supply. With gas at $2.35 a gallon, it's cheaper than driving to another town to get it.
We get by with a little help from our friends
