I know many of us like to Shop a favorite store. Maybe for some, it could be a Mall, WalMart, a thrift store, Grocery store, etc. And then there might be those who like to shop at Flea Markets, Ebay, etc. Just was wondering where everyone likes to shop at? For me, I enjoy shopping at WalMart, Dollar Stores, and Craft stores such as Michaels, etc. I also enjoy going to Flea Markets, Farmers Markets, and places like the Pike Place Market in downtown Seattle. Anytime you can go somewhere and possibly buy something different, or something someone has made, and at a Bargain, it makes it worth being there even better.

I think I have shopped at many of the places you mentioned, but my favorite by a long shot is antique stores. There is something so special about an object that was used in generations long past.

Antique stores can be interesting, but I have seen a lot of Thrift type stores also that carry some Antiques, etc. for a Cheap price as well, or even Flea Markets for that fact.

Where I like to shop depends on what I'm shopping for. I like to shop where the prices are what I can aford. For food my first stop is Aldies then the dollar stores then on to wal-mart. I like to shop the health food stores for herbs and some of the snack foods. Then the thrift stores are a fun place to shop as well as the flea markets. I do like to look in the gift shops for fun. I also like to shop at speciality shops for fun. Maybe I should say explore is a better word than shop.

Wow... This sounds like a Fun time for sure. I remember Aldis when I lived in IL. They are probably comparable to like the Grocery Outlets here in WA.

It is a very poular stor for childrens clothing.

These do sound like Great places to Shop. Especially when they are Discounted, or Bargain type of stores.

I shop at a store that has "distressed merchandise", and I love thrift shops. I frequently shop at Wal Mart, at the bargain racks of course. I like Hobby Lobby for crafts. Handmade gifts are great.

We do not have a Hobby Lobby here. I have heard they are Great and probably like Michaals. And I Love Discount stores but unfortunately we do not have many for Clothes especially around here.

Well, we have 4 WalMarts within a 20-30 min. drive. And since one of them is a Super WalMart, I get my excercise when I walk around inside.

Definitely Ebay for me, I've got so many bargains on Ebay and saved myself a fortune by shopping online rather than going to the high street. I don't like crowds so much prefer to spend my time indoors searching for stuff. Apart from clothes and food I would happily do all or most of my shopping online. I've bought some great pressies on Ebay for people which I couldn't get in the normal high street shops. So I think Ebay is wonderful and yes addictive too!

For me it would be similar to yours . I love Walmart ,the Dollar Stores , and any Craft Shops I find . I love Walmart but it is not a place I get to often as the closest one to us is almost two hours away . The dollar store in our area is not really a dollars store even though it called a dollar store as you are lucky to find anything for a dollar in it and some of the prices are still hundred dollars items but the main range would be twenty and thirty dollar items . So I like the one that is by the Walmart we go to . I am not sure the name of the craft shop in our area but there are two of them I enjoy going to :)

There are alot of places on your list where I love to shop, but my favourite is a place called Photo Memories. It is a large strore for scrapbooking. If you see something in a magazine then this is the likeliest place in Halifax to find it. Unfortunately, it is more expensive than Michaels so I end up getting a lot of my basic supplies at Michaels and the Dollar Store and saving up to get the unique stuff at Photo Memories.

I love to shop and it usually doesn't matter where! A couple of my favorites are The Outlet Mall, Any Mall, Walmart, and when I'm home sick I will sometimes have an Ebay spree or check out other online stores like QVC, Avon, etc.

Here in the PHilippines there are lots of malls to choose big or small cheap or luxurious we have. But in all of them I always love to shop at SM North cause I know the place better than other malls plus they have a nice arrangement of stores you kind find them my kind. I alos love the size of the mall casue its just mediun unlike those big malls that it could take me the whole day just to find the store I want.

I like to shop at my home biz store for my home needs and they pay me for shopping with them. I also like to go to the mall and just look around and maybe see something I like. I too also like to go to flea markets but not to many where I live. I love craft shows also.

In regards to my favourite shops I like to firstly go to many of the different thrift shops that we have here to see what they have there to buy as otherwise other people would of beat me there and therefore they will have gone, but they have many different items. I also love going to our markets to buy other goods where they have a lot of specials and save money.

Here in our country, flea markets are almost everywhere. That's where I love to shop if my budget is tight. But if I have some extra, i'd go to malls and look for something cheap or not that cheap yet of good quality. I go for the material first then next I check on the price. I love to shop almost anywhere so long as it's on my budget ;) If given the chance, i'd love to go shopping in Singapore.. if i'm rich! lol ;)

it is down there in north shore of california. I just love it. i get all the things which i want at lower prices. Retailing consists of the sale of goods or merchandise, from a fixed location such as a department store or kiosk, in small or individual lots for direct consumption by the purchaser.[1] Retailing may include subordinated services, such as delivery. Purchasers may be individuals or businesses. In commerce, a retailer buys goods or products in large quantities from manufacturers or importers, either directly or through a wholesaler, and then sells smaller quantities to the end-user. Retail establishments are often called shops or stores. Retailers are at the end of the supply chain. Manufacturing marketers see the process of retailing as a necessary part of their overall distribution strategies.Shops may be on residential streets, or in shopping streets with few or no houses, or in a shopping center or mall. Shopping streets may or may not be for pedestrians only. Sometimes a shopping street has a partial or full roof to protect customers from precipitation. Retailers often provided boardwalks in front of their stores to protect customers from the mud. Online retailing, also known as e-commerce is the latest form of non-shop retailing (cf. mail order). Shopping generally refers to the act of buying products. Sometimes this is done to obtain necessities such as food and clothing; sometimes it is done as a recreational activity.
