Who doesn’t like an Easter egg hunt?! Maybe that is why we get so many people telling us that they love shopping at The Stock Exchange - because “It’s all about the hunt”!
How many of you have thought you lost out on something only to find that it was just on a different shelf or in a different room?
If you drive down the street and that great chair you saw in the window when you drove by that morning is gone - don’t keep driving - find a parking spot and come look for it! It may have sold, but it also may have just moved.
Or, if you walked out and forgot to grab that pillow you saw downstairs and came back for it that afternoon only to see that it was gone - make sure you ask us if we still have it because we could have just moved it.
Be careful though because more often than not it will be gone. I can’t tell you how many times a week we hear “I knew I should have bought it when I saw it”. It’s fun to play the game and wait to see if it lasts long enough for a markdown - but make sure it’s something that you know that you can live without. Our merchandise tends to fly out the door - sometimes even the same day that it comes in. Furniture has been know to sell right off the sidewalk before it makes it through the front door!
So as much as we like the hunt - always remember the old saying “a bird in the hand”.
"A bird in the hand," is yours, and it's not going anywhere unless you let it go. But if you leave it and go for "two in the bush," there is no guarantee you'll catch them, you might end up with nothing in the end!
... We hope you enjoy the hunt as much as we enjoy moving things around for you!
