I’m not sure what is going on but there seems to be a conspiracy to temporarily close and remodel my favorite places. It started with Gap, and GapBody at my local mall. Come on – a girl needs her local Gap and GapBody – they are my favorite places to shop. I’ve been forced to drive 20 min. up the highway to the very ritzy mall just to shop at Gap. They’ve been closed for sometime, and won’t be open until November! This had better be some really great renovation!
The next place, was my local Starbucks! How dare they! I walked in this morning to order my Grande Mocha Frappaccino Light, to be met with signs at the doors saying they’ve made arrangements for us somewhere else because they were going to be closed for remodeling starting Oct. 8. Of course the store they are sending us to, coupon in hand, is in the opposite direction of my drive to work. Stink! They say they’ll only be closed for two weeks, but really, what renovation do you know that actually stuck to a schedule, so we’ll see.
Hopefully this isn’t turning into a trend in my life. FYI, Rubino’s Pizza, the pizza joint that I blogged about in an earlier post, so far has made no changes with the ownership shift. I still see the same employees, and my $2 pizza special still exists. I’ll keep you posted.
