Shopping can be challenging

Sunday, May 08, 2011

Well on Tuesday I finally got back to my weight watcher go. I live in Sierra Visa Arizona and even though the Chamber of Commerce's motto is to shop local, it is really hard because the local store don't have much worth buying. In sierra vista I went to Sears, Walmart, Target, Dillards and even the second hand stores and all I found was some violet and peach colored capris in sears. I want COLOR!!!!!!!!! I went up to Tucson on Friday ready to buy some new clothes. In Tucson I went to Macy's, Sears and Dillards. At Macy's was way too expensive. I always thought Macy's in the Sears/Target price range. WRONG. A pair of shorts for $75, jeans over $150. I don't think so!!!!! Then the Sears in Tucson was about the same as the selection in Sierra Vista. I then went to Dillards. I did find a really cute short and blouse outfit that was reasonably priced. In turquoise. Color at last. I asked if there was anything similar in other colors and all they had was "drab" green. Now if they had pink, red, kelly green or royal blue, I would have bought those, also. When I specifically asked if they had shorts or capris in pink, the sales lady said everyone was looking for pink. Out of all the stores mentioned above the only pink I found was in Walmart but they only had size 6 and 18. All the stores where I asked about pink, I was told, "you know, lots of people are looking for pink." So I ask, why doesn't anyone have any pink?????? Well at Dillards, I left with about $40 worth or merchandise. It would have been much more and the sales person would have ended up with more commission had they had anything but turquoise and drab green.
Now don't even get me going on bathing suits. More about that in a future post.

    I never heard of Christopher Banks and everyone tells me how good Kohls is. There isn't one in my town but was told there was one in Tucson. I tried finding it on my GPS and my phone when I was up there last weekend but couldn't find it. I am going to New England next week so hopefully I can find something there. Just makes me mad we have such unemployment in this country but some of us are employed, have some money to spend, but no where to spend it. Retailers, buy some stock, hire some people and make money. Simple economics.

    I don't know if they have them in Arizona but try Christopher Banks or a Kohls Store. Both of those stores have a wide range of sizes and always have sales. Good Luck
