Can you imagine?
WotC isn't selling you food, they're selling you the rights to eat the food. You're not paying for the food, you're paying for the enjoyment of eating the food.
If the store is closed, you may not eat the food you've purchased the rights to during that period of time.
And, if the food has gone rotten and gives you food poisoning, you will be need to fill out a form where you agree not to sue for the e.coli contamination and you will be given replacement food of the same type you just consumed, if WotC is feeling generous.

Warning if you own a dodge viper you might want add some aftermarket octane booster products to give you performance as the only gas they sell will be 85.5 octane. At least you can still use it for your caravan. Also beware of the kids trying to sell you oranges as you enter the parking lot. Although solicitation is supressed as much as possible in the classifieds a few have managed to set up permanent shacks with very similair namesakes to confuse the unwary into buying overpriced fruit. Please also remember that everything is on a first come first serve basis with no knowledge of restock dates or quantities available. Should you have complaints about the day to day operations you may have better luck spraypainting graffiti on the bathroom stalls as the store managers seem to have an unending supply of stuff to flush down the commode.Also there is a rumor about discounts for helemet wearing patrons... Due to the extremely limited supply of helemets and a promise made to never release new helemets this will never happen. ALL HELEMET WEARING PATRONS MUST PAY FULL PRICE. They will however be allowed to move to the front of the first come first serve line so they can wipe out stocks ahead of the rest. Helemet 2.0 is in the process but must meet rigid design standards that will make helemet 1 still a better version at least until helemet 3.0 comes out and breaks the helemet mold requiring the storefront to be bulldozed over so a larger entrance and more gas pumps can be installed. The good news is that once hele3.0 does this we can work out of the expresso stand hidden behind the fruit vendors until such time as a proper construction crew is assembled to build Heletopia.

I've never ventured into the Thicket. Are there different rules there than other places? Are posts required to be on-topic?
