It’s been a few weeks now since the opening of S & R. We’ve been very happy with it. I’ve been rarely going now to the other grocery stores here. When going there I’ve been eyeing some stuff there, coming back a few days after and its gone. Just for example I want a purple colored towel, good for our girls here in the house. I was telling my daughter that we will buy that next time we go there, I had some other stuff in mind to buy that day. Few days after when we came back it’s gone already. They still have other towels there, but the color that I want were gone already. Been going there a few times since then but no towel of that color yet there. So I will just have to wait. Or should I say Jean will have to wait for that color to come back there on stock then. For now I bought her a different color of towel.
Other stuff that the kids were eyeing there was the gigantic trampoline. See we used to have trampoline that we brought with us from the States. It was overused for a long time. Time to get a new one. The only problem our old trampoline the size it’s 10 feet in diameter. The one they have there at S & R was 15 feet in diameter. No matter what angle we are measuring on our yard that trampoline just don’t have enough space here. Big sigh for our kids and us. Bob and I both know that our kids enjoyed having trampoline. We are waiting if they will have the size that we want later. We are hoping for it though.
Other craze for the kids there was the pop-tart and Dr. Pepper soda. Can’t buy every time we go there. It will blow my budget away. Ha ha ha. :-). We also like the cooked babyback ribs there. It comes with one bottle of 2 liter soda with it. Really sometimes when me and Aaron and my niece Glenda take our daily walk, sometimes we would stop at S & R. Just like to walk around inside and just see what new stuff they have there again. That’s the new place to be for our family now.
Since the opening we hardly shop at the other store. We now buy our meats and other stuff there. Just little stuff we would buy from the other grocery store. Good thing it’s just a walking distance from our house. That’s really a plus for us. One thing we saw there that we used to buy in Costco in the States was the king crab. Gee it’s just too darn expensive. We just have to turn our heads away when passing that aisle. LOL. For Thanksgiving I am already looking at their whole turkey there. It’s butterball brand too.
I had a friend that I brought there. She’s living part time here in Davao. She want’s to get the membership but she’s not sure if she will be here by the end of the year or next year. She might be in the States the whole year. So I told her just don’t get a membership right now, to just let me know when she wants to buy something at S & R. Day before yesterday I brought her there. She’s wanting some medicines that she’s used to buy in the States. They had there at S & R, so she bought that with a bottle of lotion that she likes from there too.
After she bought the stuff we ate our lunch there. Good food and affordable. She’s just amazed with the place too.
All in all, so happy to have the S & R here and especially it’s really near to our house. I know some of you would say that you will not buy something from a place that you will pay for a membership. But for us it’s just so worth it. I found stuff there that my family were so happy to have it. At the end that’s all that matters to me and Bob.
Happy shopping everyone!
Hope to see you at S&R!
