I will not shop on Thanksgiving!

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Riverbend Realty, Cape Girardeau, MO 2004008944

I am taking a pledge NOT to shop on Thanksgiving. Vote with your dollars and your conscience!

FistFor many years, my Mom,
Vineda Hall England, worked in a nursing home. She often worked on holidays, and we understood that. Having to work on Thanksgiving or Christmas at a non-essential job is another thing ENTIRELY.

I will not shop on these days, no matter what incentive the stores advertise. Let's just keep Thanksgiving for itself. Christmas can wait one more day. In fact, since Christmas decorations are already in stores, Thanksgiving Day is actually only a recess from Christmas. Let's at least allow it to keep that status.

I'd like to see the stores empty, so Thanksgiving doesn't become as maddening as Black Friday. Give these employees a break!

If you are looking for a foreclosure in Cape Girardeau, Perry, N. Scott, or Bollinger counties, I am the region's most experienced REO agent. As the area's ONLY Fannie Mae direct listing agent, I list more foreclosure properties than any other agent in this MLS. I am among the few local agents approved to both list and sell HUD properties. Give me a call if you are looking for help with the purchase of a foreclosure property.


http://www.homepath.com/  for Fannie Mae properties

http://www.homesteps.com/  for Freddie Mac properties

http://www.hudhomestore.com/ for HUD properties (foreclosures that were FHA financed)


If you want up-to-the-minute real estate information, the only way to get it is to have an agent set you up on auto-notify with immediate delivery. Your listing information will come directly from MLS only when it comes from an MLS member. You willl not have to wait for the information to roll to those other websites, and you will not have to check multiple sources. It's free, so why not give me a chance to help you in your search?

NO OTHER SOURCE is as complete or as fast as your local REALTOR®’s source. This is not just an advertisement for REALTORS®--it is information about how the system really works.

I hear you Liz.  I'm not one for crowds and for people elbowing me for a deal or cutting me off for a parking space.  That's definitely one event that I can do without!

I can not believe that they are playing Christmas music on the radio already and we haven't even fed our faces with turkey yet for Thanksgiving. Slow Down a bit one holiday at a time. Next thing you know we will combine Oct., Nov. and Dec. holidays and call it Happy HalloThanksmas.
