I live in one of the biggest cities in America and yesterday shopped at one of the biggest malls in our country........not the biggest but in the top
Yesterday, I went to Kohls, Penneys, Nordstrom and Macy's..........the "nice stores".
There were tons of people, thousands or more, the mall was jam packed.
Now, just from my simple observation, looking at what others bought, how many packages and what boxes were popping out I could read (yes I am a nosy
old lady) = spending power.
Yes, some people over extend themselves, but looking at faces, carefree/non pressured vs pressured / worried can give one some indication of financial
status as well as what the shoppers are wearing themselves.
From my observation and listening as people walked by, I began to feel like a stranger in a strange land.
Most shoppers and the ones with money were clearly East Indians and Mexicans.
There were very few "whites or blacks".
Take this for whatever it is worth, just my own simple observation.
Very few people passing me spoke English.
Many East Indians were wearing top of the line clothing, very expensive stuff. Also many of the women sported diamonds, emeralds and
saphires..........looked to me to be very nice jewelry. They also did not seem to hesitate or look at price tags carefully, so price didn't seem to
be a consideration.
Want to know who is working and who isn't..............go to the mall and just simply observe who is buying what.
