Why would a whole watermelon cost $6.49 in the South? In August???
In a Walmart, specifically.
At the TN/MS border.
I've paid everything from 2.99(ingles) to 7.99(whole foods...but a HUGE one) this year in the western carolinas. Seriously, they have to come from somewhere else...there's not been enough water for a local melon unless it was irrigated. (Until this week...I got 5 1/2 inches in 2 days!)
