A break in the frenzy in Sandy UT


Gray Thursday, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday... and a gap to Cyber Monday. How many distractions do we need? Who has money still to spend for Holiday cheer?


I tend to avoid crowds and demur sales. Both have a habit of breaking my routine and my planning.


Because of strange happenings today and a very early start to tomorrow, I was dispatched to collect milk at 6pm at our local Walmart, Quarry Bend in Sandy UT, with the largest square footage of any Walmart in the USA.


Hunt it, shoot it, bag it – my style.


There must have been at least three other people beside myself and the associates in the store. The general population is shopped out already? And Christmas still a month away.


The light side of me might suggest that people are continuing to express gratitude by honoring the Sabbath, but church attendance is usually down with relatives visiting away and interstate for Thanksgiving.


Retailers are desperate for a bumper Yuletide. For me and mine, we prefer not to be shoppers.


Our priorities are different.

Larry to each thier own, but like you retailers are in trouble if they are dependent on me as a shopper! Enjoy your day!

Wayne - it's probably in getting older that I am less inclined to shop. Also I have a lesser inclination for "things". for many I know shopping is an expected ritual.
