Buy Local November 21, 2012

Posted by trainingsolutionshlc in Uncategorized.

When did the holidays become so commercial?  I know holidays are not as they are depicted in Hallmark stores or Norman Rockwell paintings but it seems the holidays have now become an excuse for conspicuous consumption.  In Torrance people lined up since Sunday in front of a Best Buy, for what? One woman said she can get a deal to save $200.  Others want Ipads and tech toys. 


I know I’m dating myself when I say I remember when but here goes.  I remember looking forward to the store windows decorated in fantasies after Thanksgiving.  I remember watching the Macy Parade then football games; enjoying family and friends and just relaxing.  On Friday and Saturday we went to local stores first because we already knew what we had been eyeing there for a while and they helped us get something unique and special.  Eventually we made it to the department stores oohing and ahhing over the décor.
