Since I haven't seen a generic thread about shopping in a while, I might as well draw a new topic here.

I'm just curious, how many of you people regularly go shopping at the mall? And if you do, where would you normally go? What would you normally do there? What stuff would you normally buy?

For me - I go straight to the arcades most of the time, doing a bit of bowling and sometimes buying some J-Pop albums along the way. Yaya! That's pretty much how I get all my clothes in my wardrobe.

I tend to do a lot of shopping on the internet, but if I do go out shopping, then I tend to head for game stores more than anything else ^^ .

EB Games.... **Pulls out her purse** Haha, speaking of which, the Tekken series are really amazing, no doubt. They even have the classic remake of the Dungeons & Dragons arcade in the mall. I liked the Wizard the most, and her Ice Storm / Elemental spells. So cheap. lol

Quote by fireflywishesyou have a bowling alley at your mall!?

Yep, the Greyhound Centre in TO has its own indoor bowling alley near the first floor of the mall when you go down the escalator, fitted with pool tables next to the arcades, and a huge DDR machine close to the center of the fountain for the people to look at, busting off moves in the public, and the works. **Giggles** Sometimes they used to bring in those mini-coasters actually in the middle of the mall, and there was bumper cars to drive around as well. It's really fun. Then at the other side is a separate building called the Playdatorium. You swap a credit card looking item in exchange for tokens.

The laser tag at the vicinity was fantastic. I'd love to play a half-hour's worth of laser tag again and again, especially when you bring so many friends along the way. lol - So much fun!

lol - lucky? The funny part is that we have to drive an entire hour downtown in Toronto, even at very high speeds to get there, so it got kind of boring waiting around.

Just like Sadotsu says, shopping isn't fun unless you bring some of your friends around, and we go in numbers of maybe 7 or 8 along the way. It's a must!

Speaking of which, Toronto has a lot of Japanese stuff being sold around the stores - if I only actually bothered to look, because I wasn't really interested in that stuff anyways. The Eaton Center and the Mississauga Square One is just as humongous as well. If I could recall, the last time - it was about 3 stories tall, the very entrance had a gigantic video game store then and there, and a little shop called Dufferin where you can buy a lot of neat things, from cards to Rubik Cubes and all that. I don't think I've come across a store that specifically sells anime, however. Unfortunately enough, they don't really sell a lot of things from Japan if you don't go to the Greyhound Centre yourself, which is kind of sad, but I did come across one that sells a lot of J-Pop albums no doubt. **Giggles**

The busiest places would have to be the EB center, a.k.a Electronic Boutique. The last time I went there, they were having pre-sales of the latest PS3 to come out in stores, and there was a huge line-up over there. I mean, literally huge. Unbelievable! I'm getting the third installment of Fatal Frame there when it comes out maybe around next month or at its debut. **Nods** Fatal Frame III there - definitely crazy indeed.

EB's always fun, though I'm not a big game buff. :)

What I really do at malls also depends heavily on who I go with. Should the girls take me, then I'll be dragged around all day, which I've gotten used to and don't mind any more. So it's all the cloths stores with me being the guy with girls, getting asked all these difficult questions on my opinion of certain attires. lol But I guess it's fun.

Should I go with guy friends, who are very few in number since my school is so disporportionally female, then uh, we go look at new phones. My friend's a phoniac. (oh I mean cell phones, just to be clear for those who can't figure out. lol)

hmm lets see...

usually when i go to the mall its because i really need to find something, like a shirt or skirt or something to that degree- so i usually take alot of time before going to think of what i'd like to find while i'm there, what particular style, colour and such. I mus admit that this is a horrible strategy because I can never find what I'm looking for... apparently my imagination likes to take the clothing i see on people walking by and alter them all into one fantastic item of clothing, one not in existence. I should really learn how to sew....

Other than that, I know exactly where i go first in a mall- other than my obvious traits of people watching and window shopping, I like to check out the food court and also I have this horribel obsession with underwear :P ... you are most likely going to find me rummaging through a pile of underwear at Silk and Satin before you see me try anything on at a clothing store. I usually do a horseshoe approach to that store- walk in, trun, walk out :P ....

Underwear on the other hand is a completely different story. Not only do I have roughly 80 pairs in my posession right now, I always manage to find something I don't have yet. Apparently since I cannot usually see something on the street worn by others I cannot subconsciously alter them in my mind and never wuite find 'that one particular peice in my mind.... hmmm... interesting....

and if there's an arcade, expect to see belly smoking someone at a shooting game or racing game ;)

I love to go shopping :) And It's a hole day activity for me...
I start by going to the mall early in the morning. my first objective is the shoe store, I go there early, otherwise it gets crowed by hundreds of women who have lost their will to enjoy life and think that happiness can be found in a pair of shoes (no offense XD ). Once I have selected the perfect pair of shoes/ snickers I go to the clothes stores... I hit the big and fancy stores, where lots of employees dress and undress you in the most incredible and fashionably outfits muajajaja... I spend so much time in there looking myself at the mirror that when I leave the store It's probably midday and I am carrying lots and lots of bags with all my new clothes in them... :)
Then I go and grab a bite, I visit some music stores and go to play some arcades like celessa does... When I get tired of saving the world, killing zombies, dismantle a terrorist operation, or threatening children to give me their coins ( hahaha naaaa ^_^') I go to the manga sore.... where I leave my heart and half my salary... -_-'
Then I go bowling, dancing on the DDR machine and/or to the cinema until it's night time and I have to return home...
Ahhhhh... I try my new wardrobe while reading my new mangas... listening to newly purchased cd albums.... life is so good... People say that money doesn't buy happines... They're just not trying hard enought... XD XD XD
There you have it! Norimune's Shopping Day? Care to join me on my next quest? :) :) :)

When I go to the mall I'm usually going clothes shopping with friends. Sometimes I buy stuff and other times I just look but I have the most fun just talking with them as we look at different outfits. After that, we go to the food court and/or the arcade.

Quote by CelessaI'm just curious, how many of you people regularly go shopping at the
mall?

I went once a week, just for window shopping though, but if I see something I really like, I will definitely buy it (except if it is sooooo expensive ><)

Quote by CelessaAnd if you do, where would you normally go?

Uh, lately I only went around Orchard Road (Sporean will know XD) every weekends, cos it is the nearest big shopping place ^^ and I can always ask my frens to come along cos it is located strategically in the center of Spore :) though in few ocassions I may go out of my way to some place like the IT mall if I need something specific XD

Quote by CelessaWhat would you normally do there?

I will always always drop by in Kinokuniya, that bookshop is a heaven to me XD other than that, I will just walk around the place while chatting with my frens, entering those shops that looks interesting (something catch my eyes) and then maybe try those piece that I like and all, after that mostly we just sit at some cafe (I love Starbucks!) or fast food joint to eat/drink and chat :) and we may decide to watch some movie too >< btw, am a very fast shopper, am not the kind to actually enter shops one by one and try all those clothes inside though I know I wont buy them >< (few of my friends do this ^^") uh, and I love arcade, but none of my gal pals like it >< so.... yeah... too bad >< >< ><

Quote by CelessaWhat stuff would you normally buy?

Tell you the truth,for clothes I mostly buy jackets (jumper, coats, etc) or jeans (pants) but not many too, and I sometimes buy novels and mangas (in Indo, I always buy at least 5 mangas in a week ><) Oh, I love to shop for stationeries XD and to look for CDs, but only buy those I really love...On no discount days, I shop very little (clothes), maybe not even one pants in a month... (but I think I do purchase at least an item a month) ..when there are sale everywhere (like right now) I may buy more clothes and accessories :)

There's a small mall by my college that I go to rather frequently. There's a Kohl's in there (clothing store) that I go to a lot, and also a very nice bookstore, Bath and Body Works (loooove that store, smells so good! ^_^). I go into Payless (shoes) almost every time. I love shoes lol. And there's a candy store that I'll go into once in a while when I want something sweet. ^_^ That's pretty much where I go every time. XD
