    Did Killeen's Mayor have anything to do with bringing Sam's to this area or did he show up to get free samples?

    I totally forgot about the lack of sales even though the advert Sam's sent me said there would be great Grand Opening prices for the first week the store was open.

    My family and I went to the grand opening yesterday and wasn't all that impressed. First and foremost the person hired to sing the national anthem disgraced every American that ever served this great country. Why can a person not just sing the anthem as its written. The store didn't look as small as the others they did have portions blocked off with extra items behind it so I'm sure it will look larger in a few weeks, was disappointed they did not offer sales to get people in the store as is with most grand openings. Definitely glad its here in town, the drive to temple was annoying at times.

    I went this morning. Was surprised the how small the store is. It's great that we have one nearby now, just be prepared that due to it being smaller than most stores, the selections will be smaller too.

    We saw cars driving on the grass in order to enter the emergency room at Seton, since the right lane was entirely blocked by cars waiting to enter Sam's Club. And this was at 10 a.m. When we went by again at 11 a.m., the line of cars was still blocking the hospital. Craziness.

    But the parking lot was full of helpful attendants, directing new arrivals to the newly emptied parking spots. It seems they were ready for the invasion.
