The season of shopping is upon us. Ugh. I hate shopping. I know, that’s weird, right? But it’s true and I try and buy as much as possible online. Nevertheless, real-live-in-person shopping is a necessity and I am doing my best to be pro-active so today’s Ten on Tuesday topic is 10 Stores I Like.
- Roche Bros. My local grocery chain. It’s small and the quality of the food is excellent. I have other locals tell me it’s expensive but I’ve done some price comparisons on the things I buy frequently and it all evens out. Plus, I get to see my friend Wendy every Friday because she works in the floral department there.
- Target. I have a love/hate relationship with Target. I love all their stuff. I hate that I spend $200 every time I walk through the door.
- Pier 1. Poking around at Pier 1 is one of my favorite things to do. I adore their serving pieces and tableware and glassware and seasonal items.
- Sephora. I feel about Sephora much the same way I feel about Target. Ca-ching. But oh so good.
- DSW. See that photo above? Need I say more.
- L.L. Bean. We have a local store and an outlet both within 1/2 hour from us but it’s the store in Freeport that I love. I went there so much as a kid and I still get all excited walking through those very tall doors.
- Lowe’s. My favorite home improvement store although they have a lousy lighting department. Paint, though? And seasonal items and tools and more? Yes, please.
- Rite Aid. I always went to CVS and then I tried to fill a prescription there after Dale’s surgery. As in – on the way home in the car and my husband needs his meds right now. And they couldn’t do it because their computers were down. Now, I work with computers so I understand that this can happen. But the attitude I got? And the lack of customer service from them? Sent me scurrying to Rite Aid and I have not looked back. They are friendly and helpful and I love them.
- WEBS. I don’t have a local yarn shop, isn’t that sad? If I need to buy yarn, though, I can make the 2 hour drive to the mecca of all yarn stores. I try and go at least once a year which means . . . I’m due for a visit!
- Keepsake Quilting. Read #9 but substitute fabric for yarn.
This was a stretch to write for this girl who doesn’t like shopping. I managed, though, and hope you did, too. Don’t forget to add your link below if you wrote a post to share with everyone today. Click here to sign up for the weekly Ten on Tuesday email.
