Hosted in the parking lot of the Florida Mall is the annual Color Vibe 5k. In a grey, broken lot sits the most colorful run in the world. A color run is usually a 5k that benefits charity. That sounds standard until you throw in the trademark. Dyed cornstarch. The dyed cornstarch, or powder, is thrown at runners in white shirts as they run. This creates a sea of different colors and an unforgettable experience.
As I walked into the music store I was overwhelmed with joy. Looking at every instrument I wish i could have. When out of the corner of my eye, I see it. A cherry red acoustic fender guitar. The light shined off of its mahogany wood as if the heavens themselves sent it from above. I brought it down from the wall and held it tight. It was lighter than I thought it would be. The body was smooth as glass, with no sharp
As a kid, you want to be the opposite of just bored and stuck at home all day. Then all of a sudden my family and I made a last minute trip to head out to Rockford and at the age of just seven, I have only been to Rockford a countless amount of times. However, I did not picture the whole thing to be as terrifying as it was. The only location that my family tended to go to was the CherryVale Mall. Throughout the whole day, getting dragged from store to store by my parents who were fond of shopping and window shopping. We must have walked miles because of all the shopping, making my legs so tired. The benefit afterwards, when my parents were done shopping and were free to watch over us more in the play place. I mean if you were seven, why wouldn’t
One of the places we enjoyed walking is what we called the little store or Mrs. Slaters, and it was a 2-mile trek down our winding Box Canyon Road. We may have stopped wearing robes, but we still went barefoot. The heat on the road did not bother our feet. After 2 miles it was so nice to get into this store, we were usually hot and ready for a break. As soon as we walk in, you see the counter in front of you and as we walk in is my favorite candy, chocolate ice cubes starring at me. I would head to those immediately and goodbye to my nickel, every time and all the time. I think they were only 5 cents. Next, I would head to the Doritos, then cream cheese, and then add an RC cola to finish the snack, and to this day I still love Doritos. With
I have worked for a major retail store for the past 10 years. For the last three years before the Christmas holidays, they have announced that some stores will be closing. I have customers who prefer to shop in the stores to see the items first before they make a purchase. Yes, I have had customers come into the store just to see the items but then wanted to complete the order at home. I think I have convenience half of the customers to order in the store instead of online. We have the buy online and pickup in stores option when customers buy items on our website. Every department has ipads to show customers items we do not have in the store but can order for them. I think as a retail store we have to think of other ways to keep customers
In everyone's every day life, including my own, there is an economy for everything. In my case I control an economy of gaming servers throughout different games and it is quite easy to track the consumers, workers, and suppliers.
When I went to the general store to get a sucker, the moment I left the store and put the sucker in my mouth I began to feel nauseous. Then my vision got blurry and I blacked out. The next moment I woke up and I realized I wasn't in modern time.
While looking for an opportunity to move out into a new market, I came across the ad WDIV Detroit had put out looking for a new Beat Reporter. As I prepare to graduate from the University of Southern Mississippi, I think this would be the perfect opportunity for me to branch out in the field while utilizing and sharpening the skill I’ve learned in the classroom.
My friend got to my house around three to pick me up and we left almost immediately. Driving to Washington was entertaining, but it was weird to be going somewhere without parents. The spent most of the drive talking about the upcoming school year, listening to the radio, and genuinely enjoying ourselves. We got to Washington safely, and the first place we stopped was at a makeup store called Ulta because there were a few things I had been needing to pick up. Like most girls when they enter a makeup store, we took our time and made sure to look at every single one of the products that we passed. As you can imagine, we were in the store for quite some time and we started to get hungry. Since I had breakfast that morning I wasn’t starving, but
Entering the Hub-City Bookstore, in downtown Spartanburg, is a fantastic way to lose one-third of your hard earned paycheck. This is not a condemnation of high prices. This is also not an opinion, but a statement learned by simply walking through the door and seeing the wonders of literature that beheld you. I walked into this bookstore, having been in many others before it, and previously assumed it wouldn’t be that difficult to walk out with my bank account still intact. You know what they say about assuming. When I walked out, my debit card was weeping tears of blood and wondering why I had forsaken it so.
New town, new school, and most importantly a new family. It's all the same to me, I've done this a million times before, so what was so different about this time? Why was I so nervous about a fresh start once again? That's the thing. I don't know why, but I was. Walking out of the foster group home out into the parking lot, and seeing the new family, it all was too familiar for me. But this time, this time something was different. It felt different. And I had no idea why. Until now.
Fairfield Momentum… As soon as you’re pulling up the big bird is extremely eye catching lol.
“Cathy, I’m eager to call Heather and thank her for telling us about the new store, it was a great idea and the prices are wonderful, Betty said as they exited the new CMC Department store carrying several packages.
I left home to see if i could buy some new apparel, well nothing stole my gaze as usual, i gave up any further searching, got aboard a bus and felt like to take some time in the park near home.
I was born and raised in Grand Prairie, Texas, but I consider Moody, Texas to be my home town. I spent my high school years in Moody, and it was there where I made the friends with whom I still remain in contact today. As one might expect, it was quite a culture shock to move from a Dallas-adjacent city boasting a population of over 100,000 to the small, farm-and-cattle town which was measured in acres rather than miles, and my two brothers and I each handled the transition very differently.
