Wall Drug

We rolled into Wall SD after leaving the Nomad View and went to Wall Drug. It definitely lives up to its billing. Lots of curious shopping to do plus food to eat. We had lunch but didn't take advantage of the free ice water or the $.05 coffee. Picked up a few stickers as well as a couple of gifts for Austin and the twins for their birthdays.

As we were leaving there was a Grand Design repair truck just pulling up so we went over and chatted with them plus got a pic. Did find out that the new ac relocation kit that we got should help to stop the ac from freezing up, so need to get that installed. Also the gal works for Lippert and said that they have a suspension retrofit that rivals the Moreryde wet bolt system so will look into that and compare. Also found out that they have a Lippert Scout app that will need to get.

It was in December of 1931 that Dorothy and Ted Hustead bought the only drugstore in a little town called Wall on the edge of the South Dakota Badlands. By the summer of 1936, the business had not grown much. They had given the business five years trial time, but they were still seeing a lot of cars going by without stopping. Then on a hot July Sunday, Dorothy came up with a startling idea. Realizing that all the cars going by on Route 16A through the hot, dusty prairie would have thirsty folks inside, she proposed that they put up signs on the highway telling people to come in for free ice water. The rest, as they say, is history!

FREE ICE WATER! This simple but innovative idea has brought the Husteads a long way. They have disco if you offer people something they need and serve up good humor, great service and good deals.
