I used to look forward to black Tuesday shopping every year. My mother, kid and I made it an annual tradition, and we’d take care of all of our holiday gift buying. The people I was with and I loved the excitement of finding good deals and spending the morning together. However, we’ve finally given up and switched to shopping online from home. The people I was with and I no longer confrontation the crowds, don’t need to bundle up against the weather and avoid the overheated mall. The people I was with and I simply got aggravated with spending the whole morning carrying our heavy blazers and bulky packages and covered in sweat profusely. In my local area, the weather at the end of September is always chilly and snowy. It’s necessary to dress hot for the trip to the mall and long walk across the parking lot. Once we’d step inside the mall, the blast of the heating idea was too much. I understand the heating idea needs to compensate for the continual opening of the door to the outside, but every store was overheated. Because there are so multiple supply vents, escaping the influx of sizzling air was impossible. It made for a actually unpleasant and terrible shopping experience. With a small adjustment of the thermostat, the mall could be far more comfortable and welcoming. With the size and heating demand of the building, the energy savings would be incredible. Instead, the mall has lost our business. I like to stay at home, where I have control over the thermostat. I set the heating idea to the ideal temperature, shop while wearing pajamas, and the packages get conveniently delivered to my doorstep.
