    Thanks, Meredith!

  • meredith88 Mar 11, 2015

    Faye, it was the one on New Bern Ave/64 headed from Raleigh into Knightdale.

  • Faye Prosser -WRAL Smart Shopper Mar 11, 2015

    That's too bad that the noise level is so loud in the store, Meredith. That would give me a headache as well. Which FL location is this?

  • meredith88 Mar 11, 2015

    I went to FL last night to grab a couple things and the store was starting on their remodel. We were there for about a half hour and they were using a jack hammer the entire time so the store was incredibly loud. Talking to the employees it's been like that since the remodel started and they are tired of listening to the construction while the store is open. So I guess I will start trying to figure out which locations near me are under construction and only going to the other stores and rotating locations until it's all done. I'm excited to see the new stores but it was hard to shop with all the noise giving everyone in the store a headache.
