Close; Annie is trying to make a convert of her pal.
Panel 1: We start with an exterior of Hinkley's Handy Haven. Annie says "See, Elly? The prices are amazing; Handy Haven is a great place to shop." Elly harrumphs that it's tacky.
Panel 2: As we see them wander through well-stocked aisles with signage that boasts about low prices, Annie shoots back "So? What you lose in class you gain in cash; check out the back-to-school clothing!" Elly mutters under her breath.
Panel 3: Elly then notices that it's not very good quality; Annie says "Exactly" as if Elly has just proven her point for her.
Panel 4: Said point is that by the time the article of clothing is too small, it will have worn out anyway.
Summary: That's one way of looking at it, I guess. I wonder how many people will agree with Annie on Coffee Talk this week. I also wonder if we'll end up going on an insane tangent tomorrow.
ETA: I just remembered that it's supposedly Lizthony's first anniversary today. I wonder if the people of Milboring have lived that down yet.
