Bush goes to hardware store that offered him a job

Former President George W. Bush has visited a Dallas hardware store that earlier this month made him a lighthearted offer to work as a greeter. Andrea Bond, a manager at Elliott's Hardware, says Bush walked into the store Saturday and quipped: "I'm looking for a job."

The store had published an open letter to Bush, inviting him to apply for a store greeter position. The tongue-in-cheek appeal appeared in The Dallas Morning News and its commuter-oriented sister publication, Quick.

Bond says Bush spent about an hour shopping and talking to customers during the surprise visit. He bought a few flashlights, batteries and a can of WD-40. He also bought night lights.

Bush and his wife, Laura, moved into a home in the Preston Hollow area of Dallas on Friday.
