Maybe it’s because I was a “hand-me-down” type of kid. Maybe it’s because I was a broke college student with only one pair of jeans, but I love shopping, especially for clothing. People up here used to get really excited when I would tell them I am from the Sioux Falls area. “Did you shop at The Mall?” they would ask. I found this amusing because I had never contemplated the idea of The Empire Mall before. Now, after living away from the city for almost three years, I completely understand! The Empire Mall is fabulous! The abundance of clothing stores, gift shops, and dining options compares to no other mall in the state. I had obviously taken it for granted while I lived there. But, isn’t taking things for granted what we humans excel at?
Due to the issue that I cannot travel to Sioux Falls as often as I would like, I shop online. The other day the UPS man told John that he loved me because he delivers a package to me several times a month. Should John be worried? I do not think so (neither about me leaving him for the UPS man or about my habit).
Reasons I love shopping online:
- I get to shop for the best deal from home!
- What could take an hour or more in an actual store, I can accomplish in minute on the computer.
- I get my shopping fix, and a few days later a present arrives!
- www.dsw.com (this one I adore!)
- Nordstrom rack (http://shop.nordstrom.com/c/nordstrom-rack?origin=headerlogo)
If you are ever in need of some shopping tips, please get in touch with me. I love sharing advice and pointers with fellow retail addicts. Do you have a favorite online store? I definitely do not want to be kept out of the loop on a good deal!
