the joy of window shopping

Myer saleDavid Jones sale

On Boxing Day (26th December 2007), it was the usual yearly Boxing Day Sale. I dragged Laurent to city for some bargain hunting. This year in Sydney, only City opens on Boxing Day, other major suburbs opens on 27th.

It was full of people there, and in most shops, it was hard to get from side of the store to another end. It seems like people still have money left after Christmas gifts and wanting to hunt for bargains.

All in my mind was to buy a set of measuring spoons and measuring cups with Australian standards. The set I bought earlier was American standard, which are not the correct amount (smaller). The shop did not have clear label about the American standard. I bought measuring spoons and measuring cups from Victoria's Basement. Pretty good value, cheaper than the ones in Myer and David Jones.

Later Laurent saw an ice cream/gelato maker on Myer. We decided to check David Jones to see if we can find a better deal (for the same model), and we did. As the golden shopping rule says, it is worth to shop around.

It is interesting that each time I drag Laurent out for window shopping, he usually spends more than me.

An unrelated topic, I was locked in Myer's lift on Christmas Eve. The shop closed at 6pm, and I left at around 6.10pm. I was on Level 6, and took a lift to leave the shop. The door opens, but it does not respond to the buttons, and it did not open the door.

One lady pressed the phone button for assistance, a Chinese guy who did not listen to the message kept pressing around the buttons, and the phone call ends up in Myer's general enquiry (telephone's main line, and we ended up waiting in the line). Finally the call got answered, but the guy says something no one understands. Later that lady pressed the call button again, and this time it was answered by the building operator. She told us that we have to press P for Pitt Street level, as the Myer section has closed. We exit from Pitt Street level (food hall, not part of Myer).
