"Thin Mints" Go Hi-Tech

"Thin Mints" Go Hi-Tech

When you're savoring a "Thin Mint" and can't wait for Girl Scouts to knock on your door, go to www.girlscoutshcc.org to locate on- site Girl Scout cookie sales at retail locations around town! Thanks to hi-tech, the Girl Scouts Heart of California website contains a search for cookie sales locations by zip codes. With a quick search, Girl Scout cookie sales can be found all around Sacramento! Since Girl Scouts and their leaders volunteer time for this major fundraising event, sale hours are limited. Start the cookie quest soon because Thin Mints are in top demand.

A+ Customer Service At Macy's Downtown Sacramento

A+ Customer Service At Macy's Downtown Sacramento

Sacramento -- As a woman who loves to shop, I often experience less than enthusiastic sales people -- especially during a holiday sale! That's why the effort by an executive at Macy's in downtown Sacramento deserves my thanks for going the extra mile to help me during the recent Presidents' Day Sale. When an advertised toaster oven resulted in a sell-out, Macy's executive "Rob" promised to contact other Macy store locations to, hopefully, find this toaster oven at a generously-discounted price. I told Rob my old toaster oven (a wedding gift in 1974) is "sparking" while in use. Clearly, I need a new toaster oven before my garlic bread turns into a camp fire. Even though Rob promised to find me the advertised toaster oven, I assumed that once I'm out of sight that I'd also be out of Rob's mind. Two days later, Rob called saying he located the out-of-stock toaster oven! Amazingly, Rob wants me to be a happy Macy's shopper. He succeeded.

Sacramento Shopping Scene: Local Boutiques vs. Mall Madness

Sacramento Shopping Scene: Local Boutiques vs. Mall Madness

Style. Image. Personal Service. Convenience.

These are all things we take into consideration when we go out on a shopping adventure. Many of us know what we want and what we want to spend.

But where to go? Grind into the mall parking lot and head into the vast selection of shops and department stores? Or do we hop off the freeway and glide into Midtown Sacramento where galleries and boutiques share the tree-lined streets from Capitol Park to Business 80.

If you choose the mall, you'll know pretty much what to expect. Gap, Macy's, Nordstrom, etc. all have many styles to choose from (at tremendous markup), but finding a knowledgeable clerk who can spend time with you is difficult. And chances are, when you do decide on that cute dress, somebody at the party will have also decided on the same dress! Because these huge chain stores buy large quantities of the same item, and load their racks with them.
