If you need an uncommon item at the last minute, such as a suitcase, an identification card from your state, or an eighth of Marijuana, look no further than the National Discount Store. Owner Wilbur Wall is an old charismatic soul with one of the strongest entrepreneurial spirits I’ve ever encountered. In my work ‘The National Discount Store,” I explore every aspect of the environment. Including, but not limited to, items sold in the store, the owner himself, and the ever-evolving neighborhood which the store is located within.
