Chris had the day off today since it was Remembrance Day, so after going to a memorial down the street from us, we took advantage of his extra day off work and went out to do some shopping. Actually I made an appointment to get my haircut in the afternoon so I guess shopping was just an add on.
The mall where I get my haircut just had a new drug store put in. Well the drug store that was there moved to a different area of the mall and expanded in size.
The new store is huge! Why do drug stores need to be so big these days anyway? I mean, one area there was a wall with one diet supplement after another, two rows of just hair products and of course every drug store seems to have a grocery section these days!
Speaking of huge stores we also went to Costco (That’s like Sam’s Club in the US). I both love and hate going there. They have some great prices, but everything is in such large packages that if we buy something it lasts 6 to 12 months! That’s a good thing – unless we have too many supplies built up. We do have a small house with absolutely no closet space or rather almost no closets (we have two!). The joy of living in a 1920’s house.
Do you also think that stores are just getting bigger and bigger these days?
