SoCS Dec. 19/15 – Store


This week’s prompt: “store”

This morning the stores were packed. What with it being a week till Christmas the Christmas panic as I call it where so many people descend on the shops buying more stuff than they are likely to use in a month no matter how many people arrive at their door.

But its how its done and the shops as we call them, I have already used “store” in this context, open their doors early, in fact some don’t close and accommodate the 3am shopper as well….

Obviously people do shop at 3am, not me I am an early morning shopper….I like to get in there when the crowds aren’t so bad, get what I want and get out. I am not a walk every aisle twice looking type of shopper.

Of course every shop stores a lot of stuff in readiness for the Christmas rush.

In some ways there is a stigma attached to a product that is labelled store bought, like it is one of many straight off the rack and picked for the convenience of it rather than any aesthetic value it might have.

So there you have it, I stored away a few morsels of knowledge to share with you, but I suspect you already knew all that and if you haven’t been to your local store at this time of year, usually around midday when it is at its worse then you don’t know what you are missing…..NOT!!

Merry SOC Christmas to all who read and pass by my blog I am sure we will have much more in store for the New Year.

    There is actually no such stigma related to store-bought things here – or maybe that’s just me. 😛 Have a very merry Christmas, Michael!
