Another Example of Time Passing Me By
On Saturday October 23 my wife had to make a return to the Nordstrom store located in the Garden State Mall. We got to the mall at about 11:00 AM. It took us 15 minutes to find a parking space. While my wife made her return, I wondered over to the watch department. (Chipp2 sells a lot of watches. We can put the image of any dog that exists onto a watch face. In addition to dogs, we can put cats, fish, birds, you name it onto the watch face. We make custom watches putting one’s own dog’s image onto the watch face at no extra charge. We use Citizen watches, which are a good inexpensive watch.) I wanted to see what a “watch department” was selling. I was not surprised to see the prices of the watches- they had all the major makers on display. I noticed a basket with a sign - “Watch Bands Reduced 50% “. The watch bands on the Chipp2 watches are leather. We offer them in basic colrs- black, brown, red, green, blue. The watch bands in the basket were mostly leather, some snake skin. None were metal. The ticketed prices were $100 +. Because I remember what the prices of products were in 1960, I am uncomfortable with many of the prices of the products we sell sell today. When a customer wants a cashmere jacket I almost choke stating the price. I found the watch band prices unbelievable. My wife says it is another example of my having one foot stcuk in the past.
