1. The guy at Burch's was very helpful as I quickly and efficiently decided on which school/church shoes I wanted to buy and he directed me right to a pair of solid yard work shoes. I buy shoes about once every presidential election cycle, so this was a huge event for me.
2. Since I had such good luck with service and shoes at Burch's, I decided to try my luck at REI for a pair of walking/light hiking shoes. I got great advice from two employees and a very friendly customer and left the store confident that the shoes I chose will be comfortable and long lasting. I buy shores about once every presidential election cycle, so this was a huge event for me.
3. I decided I need a cheap power mower for times, like now, when my non-power push mower just won't work because the grass is too tall and wet. So I went to Cascade Garden and Equipment and the guy who helped me led me right to a used, cheap mower that I think will do the job. I buy a mower about once every time leadership changes hands in Cuba, so this was a huge event for me.
