    I have gone to multiple local stores looking for spaghetti squash and no one has any.... Walmart, Kroger, Albertson's, etc. Is it because it is out of season? What is up with that???

    TIA, Luis

    Perhaps the demand for it doesn't justify the shelf space. It is fairly easy to grow, so perhaps you can grow your own in a fall garden.
    I've never had spaghetti squash--but I sure love spaghetti!

    Well, at least I know there should be some out there. I thought it was strange not to see them for the last few weeks. Most stores had spaces set up for them but no stock. I started wondering if people were hoarding them for some reason. Thx for letting me know. I will continue to keep an eye. I checked Brookshires online and the stores were pretty far away from DFW Airport.

    mart, I clicked on the link and the map had three symbols titled "eCommerce Store (what is that?), Preferred Store (what is that too?) and Active Store". Are you familiar with those terms as far as Brookshire Stores are concerned?

    Oh, gee. Not sure I would want to do that. USPS is not doing good things for me recently. I ordered a birthday gift via Amazon to be delivered on Thursday and it is still undelivered. All I can tell from the tracking number info is that, yes, it is still late. I wish it would display exactly where is it. Oh well.

    But at least USPS is cheaper than other companies so I keep using them. Of course, USPS and Fedex are equally bad, often delivering stuff to the wrong streets or houses. Sigh. Oh well again. I am ranting now so I will quit.

    Stay safe out there!

    well,, just to fill you in,, if its like my last order from ebay and it sounds like the same problem i had ! Only the final delivery is handled by usps,, the problem is that it is sent to a different shipper prior to its arrival at usps !! and it can sit there for weeks ! if you notice the tracking number has a few more numbers than usps tracking ! i ordered a phone battery from a seller in California and even though it said that it had been shipped it had not ! and usps tracking will not show exactly where it is !

    I got one at the Natural Grocers on Forest at Preston in north Dallas the other day. See if you can find one close to you...there are several in the north Texas, do a google search for Natural Grocers to see if there is one within an easy trip for you.

    I have one NG near me so I may stop by. Thanks for reminding me that they are around. Their location is near but not usually a part of town that I go thru unless headed to Lowes or a Kroger's store.
