I went to Kmart yesterday but have not been there in months. Maybe even over a year. I used to shop there more often but in recent times I think they have become really cheap and nasty.
Also, I have realised that buying 'cheap' things is a false economy, because if I buy better quality then they last longer and cost less in the long run. It just means buying less things.
This was a day or two after I'd read an article in our local paper speculating whether David Jones would open a store here and most people commenting that no-one would shop there anyway and it would be better to have cheaper stores like Ikea or Aldi or even Walmart (is Walmart even in Australia?). My experience of Ikea and Aldi is really hit and miss in regards to quality, but my experience of both stores is fairly limited.
So I'm wondering, am I just a shopping snob now, or are there others out there who think the way I do?
I don't want to judge anyone, I just want to be enlightened.
