Here is a quick update article that shows some changes and more photos of these two stores than previously featured on the blog. I also changed the fonts and some of the colors to make the blog easier to read.

The electronics department shortly after the video game clearance. Here is where the electronics were separated from the rest of the store by large video game cases that were removed.
