    Old St Joseph, 10th Line or Innes Road ?: Box stores or Strip Malls

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    SHOPS, all the Nationally Branded ones have arrived,
    come wednesday thursday and friday
    our mail box followed by recycling Black Boxes fill up with consumer mind manipulating colourful flyers offering us special savings - off Specially higher prices set to be discounted and get your hard earned dollars, borrowed from Credit card facilities ?

    Over the past 24-36 months, we within weeks see new additions;
    not being a lover of the CONSUMERISM society,
    whilst it is catering for the needs of the masses
    it is merely an added convenience for those with cars
    and other personal transport means

    but it is what the public wants and needs [?]
    or is it the innovative property developers who convince the marketing and property dept of National Brand stores that if they do not sign in, they'll lose out. on the other end, why must consumers have every store on their doorstep, must we support these stores e.g. LCBO or Walmart amongst many news store for convenience and help them pay for rental, flyers, discounts etc; is their argument that they are providing a service at your doorstep and creating jobs ? i do not buy the later reason

    What to buy: essential personal needs, house maintenance products, cars, gifts, communications (aka Mobiles )
    fast take out or sit down foods for those who are convinces that their own culinary skills are inadequate ( an occasional change is good for my taste buds adventurous yearnings, yet hard on the pocket or common sense ;-)

    What to pay: a dollar or thousands, even at the uncalled expense of taking myself deeper into the dangerous red zone of exceeding my gross income
    buyer beware and be warned
