Big Box Stores

Big box stores just don’t do it for me anymore. They haven’t for quite a while. Its probably been at least eight years, maybe more. There could be a couple of reasons why I don’t bother to go to them, as in another life, I did work in two of them, and for the most part, I detested it. Cheap wages, assholes for bosses and hours that they you to work at the beck and call. With that said, even though I am retired, I would never do it again. Supermarkets and grocery stores are a different story, as when I go into them, I usually know what I need, get it, and I’m in and out in no time. That’s fine with me.

The goods and whatever else I use to purchase in the big box stores, I buy them online. Clothes, shoes, toilet paper, paper towels, paper napkins, and a few other things, I buy them online through Amazon or Wal Mart. Books: Amazon, Blackwells Book Store in Oxford, UK and Book Depository in London, UK. Most of the different brands of coffee, I buy online as I found they can be cheaper than the local supermarket. Ditto with bottled water, as the city water in my city sucks. Almost every day, I will browse the websites and see what bargains I will find, and mostly but them.
