As I wrap up my series on shopping, I invite you to travel back in time with me a couple of years. It was in 2014 when this news broke. Take a look.
I might have been a dollar short and a few days late in reporting this sighting, but I was thrilled to see President Obama shopping at The Gap in NYC. I realized that his appearance had a political and public relations angle since The Gap had raised its hourly minimum wage for its workers from $7.25 to $10.10; but he is such a natural! Isn’t he?
President Obama is an avid reader and a phenomenal author. His books are excellent reads. He also loves to buy books. Mr. President, you need not shop for my next book, “The Rainbow Inn” which will hit the shelves soon. I will save you the steps and deliver a free autographed copy directly to you. My pleasure! That is the least that I can do considering how much your service to the country and your writings have inspired me!
Okay guys, follow President Obama’s sterling example to buy gifts for your number one’s when traveling (or otherwise). I am sure that the Obama ladies enjoyed their new garbs. It’s the thought that counts!
By spending $154.85, the Prez also did his part to stimulate the economy. What a President! What a thoughtful shopper! I’ll say!
