It's nice to be back in a place with Ross, Target, etc. I've always scored good deals on clothes - much to my wife's chagrin, I beat her at her own game. But it's even easier when there's decent shopping within 5 miles. Last week I got a pair of Rockport dress shoes for $25, and fancy-schmancy brand socks, belt, and tie for, all together, another $25.
I've heard some say that Monroe shopping leaves a lot to be desired, and I'm sure this is true from their perspective. But to them, I say two things: First, move to a place like Moscow for a while. "Shopping? What's that? Oh yeah, that's what we drive 100 miles to Spokane for - that and the airport." Second, imagine Monroe before the economic development began along Thomas Road and Pecanland Mall on I-20 (scroll down). It could be a lot worse.
