I secret shopped our Claycomo store to check out the raffle and to see what products I could find on a Sunday afternoon. The weather was pretty sunny, and there were about 100 people waiting in line to shop after the 2 pm Sunday restock. I walked up to the smiling employee who handed me a ticket. My number was 66. A few of the fast pass winners didn’t arrive, so the manager called out random numbers to come to the front of the line to take their place. With 66 people lined up in front of me, I wasn’t sure what type of items I would find. Upon entering the store, a cart was given to me, and I began my search. I wanted to find any items I could use as Christmas or birthday gifts. At first, I was a little overwhelmed and didn’t know where to start. I saw a man throwing every brown box he could find into his cart. I thought to myself, he must be a re-seller. Another man ripped open a box, and threw it back into a bin. I kindly asked him to put the items back into the box. Customers have to hold each other accountable because that behavior ruins the shopping experience for everyone else. In my hunt, I found all the following items and more!
To answer my original question, what is worth shopping at It’s $5 on Sunday? ABSOLUTELY! I found some Christmas gifts and a bunch of items that were way cheaper than retail prices. Did I find an Ipad? No, but a man next to me did find a really cool drone. I calculated my savings on my purchases, and it was well over $100. I was also able to get a few gifts for friends that I normally do not shop for – a great way to spend my Sunday afternoon.
