I finished work early today so I was able to fit in some S&R shopping before it was time to fetch Yuri from school. We were planning to go tomorrow pa but then I remembered Yuri has an appointment with our dentist tomorrow, so we tried to pass by S&R to see whether the queue outside the entrance was manageable…
Lo and behold there was no queue! I was expecting the same queue I experienced during last year’s Members’ Treat so I was pleasantly surprised. Then again we were there early afternoon on the third day of the sale (Friday) so either the shoppers were already done shopping or haven’t arrived yet. There were no long queues inside the warehouse either!
Unlike last year, I wasn’t able to take photos of the goods on sale this year because I was in a hurry as I needed to be back at Yuri’s school by 3:30 pm. Also, unlike last year when I was with friends, this time my parents tagged along and I gladly accepted the company for the #seniorcitizen benefits lol.
I was able to read comments of some people saying that the sale this year is not as extensive as the past years’. I actually do not mind at all because I’m coming into the store with no specific thing I need to buy naman. I’m not there to hoard or panic-buy either. My mindset is that I’ll just buy whatever practical find catches my eye. And speaking of things that catch my eye, here are the stuff I bought!
Even if there are items I miss being on sale (for example, where was the Dial body wash for kids???), it was a pleasant experience because there were no queues (at least in S&R Davao) and even if I had no senior citizen in tow, I would still have finished early and fetched Yuri on time…
…except I wasn’t able to fetch Yuri on time because we were greeted by this weather.
Cars were stuck in traffic everywhere because some of the streets were flooded.
I arrived 45 minutes after Yuri’s dismissal! Bad mama! It was a good thing that his other classmates were still in school, waiting for their sundo, so Yuri was not alone, but I feel for those kids, too. I hope they were fetched immediately after we left!
Sorry, Yuri, at least you have snacks?
PS: Be careful with the bags of chocolates on sale. The ones we picked up, the giant Mars one and the Kitkat, will be expiring before November. We just bought it because we’re scheduled to use them way before the expiration date. So yun lang, just check the expiry dates!
