I can't tell you the last time I was in a department store, let alone a Macy's at lunch hour, with the big Wanamaker's organ playing in the background and an anthill worth of people milling around. Why do those stores always feel like it's Christmas?
It stopped me for a second. All the stuff was just overwhelming, and I realized as we continued our walk that the extent of my shopping in the last few years has been for food or fabric, or at thrift stores. Being inside an actual, huge retail establishment was weirdly disorienting.

I know how you feel..............other's must be feeling the same as Macy's is closing some stores with stocks falling. Sad but just real life.
Yes, it's interesting. I hadn't worked for 12 years on a single parent payment and now I'm working and have some money, I can't seem to part with it in big (or small) shops. When I do go for stuff I need (desperate for closed shoes) it overwhelms me and I come out empty handed.
