Default Your Favorite Store to Shop In?

I'm not talking about just around Christmas, but any time of the year.

I really like Target. I just like the way it is laid out. Wal-Marts is just too crowded for me.

Has anyone heard of Goody's? Is it a national store. But I love shopping for clothes there.

I also like to see the different gadgets at Radio Shack.

I read a lot so I spend a lot of time at Books A Million and Barnes and Nobles.

The one place I always try my best to stop in is Best Buy, but I don't really favor one store of another when it comes to shopping.

We have a Goody's located about 50 miles south of us, but 90% of the store is women's clothing.

Big fan of eBay. I try to avoid stores if I can. Just not my thing. But if I need to do some shopping, I usually head over to Wal-mart.

I'll have to check that out.

I mentioned before I like Goodwill and The Salvation Army. The last Friday of every month is 1/2 off at Goodwill and I go to town in there. Been that way since I was a kid. Well, I didn't go to town in there as a kid due to lack of $, but ya know what I mean.

I like Target. If I were rich I'd buy the food they sell in there. Looks good.

I love Target & Best Buy - I could stay all day in those stores...

Down here in Florida (in Georgia too I think) we have a grocery store chain called Publix. The BEST when it comes to customer service, cleanliness, selection, you name it.....:thumbup:

I like specialty stores. There is a store in the Mall of America called "The New York Sock Exchange" which sells only socks. I could spend a thousand dollars in that store, easily (considering the sox are about $7 a pair, it wouldn't be hard). There is also a "rainforest" store there which is all about endangered animal species.
I also like Barnes and Noble. My wife and I frequently spend a couple of hours browsing there and end up spending a couple hundred dollars.

Cabela's and Bass Pro. For those who have never been to either, they are outdoors stores that sell mostly fishing, hunting, etc. goods but they're more like part store, part museum. It's probably worth checking out even if you're not into that kind of stuff.
