I thought the sales are always the crap no one else wanted! Because that is what it feels like at my Target Country. Like end of winter was about 300 cardigans. In all different colours and that's about it for ladies wear LOL
Quirks about living in a really small town:
When I had a baby I boosted the population by 1.5%
People here call lunch "dinner" and dinner "tea"
When you get invited to someone's house for "tea", the venue may be the shed not the house (So you can leave your grubby boots on, I guess).
We lived about 15 minutes out of a town with a population for 544 people. We had a tiny corner store that was also the post office, internet café, local bank, fuel station and the only take away shop in town. We had a butcher a pub and a tiny local school. Oh and a police station with a local cop that everyone knew. The next closest town was 45min from the little town, it had coles woollies big w target country and the fast food places. The down sides were obviously everyone knew exactly what you were doing it about 3 seconds after you did it. If there was ever a scandal they'd talk about it for years (I was young and living with my boyfriend but apparently I was also sleeping regularly with about 3 other men) Anything at the corner store was at least double what you'd pay in a supermarket and usually very close to use by date. The butcher was awesome so much better then one you'd find elsewhere. You lose power regularly and most of the time it would take at least a day to come back on because obviously the power companies have better things to do. You had cows wandering around your house and occasionally walking on you verandah and looking through your windows. You have at least one resident snake in your laundry.
We have Target Country and I HATE it!
Everyone knows everyone, and if they don't actually know you they know that you are Bob's wife's nephew's wife's cousin's kid.
Speaking of target / target country our closest town of about 10,000 has a "target" that is to big to be target country but not as big as a regular target. Kind of a target mid-size.
