Whether by name or by type of store, which places are your favorite to shop at or browse around?
I hate clothes shopping with a passion so my favorite stores are non-clothing. I love music stores. I used to hang around music stores for hours while in high school, looking for hard-to-find albums and digging through the clearance bins.
I went to Staples today with a friend who needed to have copies made. I love going to office supply stores! They have all kinds of need labels and paper, big packs of markers, lots of fun stuff to complete projects.
Bookstores are another favorite of mine. I already own a ton of books but I can never get too much of a good thing. I read a lot of biographies, true crime, and books on particular subjects, like multiple personality disorder, the holocaust, and the atomic bomb.
I love Bed, Bath and Beyond. The only problem with them is there's too much I'd like to buy. When I'm looking at the kitchen gadgets, I want to buy everything they have and totally replace everything in my kitchen.
Pet stores are fun to visit. One of our pet stores in the mall used to have animals out where you could hold them. They had bunnies, ferrets, kitties, guinea pigs, plus a glassed-in area where you could get a better look at a dog you wanted to buy and romp around with it a bit. Unfortunately, they went out of business years ago.
I also love the grocery store. Even when I only have a few items to get, I'll often go up and down every aisle to see what new products are available or to see if some of my favorite items are on sale.
