When I hear Sears called Sears/Roebuck, I have to wonder how old someone is or where they lived to remember that, maybe both.
A lot of the stores I loved as a kid or young adult are long gone. I do a lot on line, but still love Kohl's.

I used to love shopping at Marshalls but not anymore; Ross's as well, but still find some things there I like.

That is true!! You know what I've noticed? Many of the new scents are the old scents renamed or are only slightly different - atleast a few of them smell verry familiar to me .

Yup, I've noticed that too. Though over the years, I've also noticed a trend away from natural-smelling fruits and florals and towards incredibly powerful, cloying perfumed scents. I like less and less of their line as the years go by.

Still love their 3-wick candles though.

I find it difficult to believe that cash transactions take longer then card transactions. I can hand the cashier a $10.00 bill as quick as I can hand them my card.

They take longer since they likely will have to give you change. How many times have you bought something and it came up to an exact dollar amount?

Add to that cashiers that don't seem to be able to do basic math, and it takes quite a bit longer. Example, my mother told me that on Monday she went to Walmart to buy an organic pesticide for her pepper plants. That was the only thing she bought, and the total was $4.22. She only had $20 bills and some change, so she paid $20.22. The cashier was confused for quite a while, and even said, "Oh, I guess I have to give you back $16."
