I became a member...

... of S&R yesterday. The main objective of my visit was to get candy canes for Javi's baptismal centerpieces. Somebody from the Newlywed group suggested that I can find green canes at S&R.

Instead of going all the way to The Fort, I went to the Congressional branch instead. Upon arriving, I inquired about the membership. I am torn between getting the Day Pass or the Gold Membership. The Day Pass holder would be charged an additional 5%. Becoming a member for P700 will entitle the holder free membership to all S&R branches. The CSR suggested that I check out the place first to see if I'm interested in purchasing a lot. That would, at least, help me decide if I wanted to become a member.

So, I went around. I saw a lot of great stuff. Some expensive, some really reasonably-priced. I was convinced. Besides, I wanted a reason to frequent the place. I miss shopping at Costco. S&R is a good alternative.

After going through each aisle, I've seen nice gift items for the people in my list. I got several frames, sets of flatware, a box of beer mugs and candle-holders. They even sell genuine (read: live) pine trees for a little over 3Thou. There were also several Aveeno items in the shelves. I made a mental note to check the place out whenever we run out of baby soap. However, the main purpose of my visit was nowhere to be found. I asked around and they said it was already out-of-stock. Apparently, they spoke without looking. I found what I was looking for by the cashier counters. They don't have the green ones. I just got the chocolate kind instead. That would have to do.

-------------------------

As they were scanning the boxes of candy canes, it reflected the price P124 for box. The signage said P99. I immediately inquired about the discrepancy. The supervisor said that the price has changed. I stood my ground. Seeing that I am not relenting, she bypassed the system. I didn't know they could do that! Needless to say, I got the canes for P99 per box.

Mood: satisfied
