“I would say Macy’s. They have everything for your home, and it’s 75 percent off so it’s affordable.”

“I’d probably say … somewhere like Costco because just having discount on food items that I need would be nice.”

“Target, because I can get food there and I can get clothes and housing goods. So, basically everything I need for life.”

“Well, the first thing that comes to my mind would be the Apple Store because those are always the things that I have to save budget for. They’re fun to play with. It’s helpful too for both work and for fun … [and] I spend way too much money there.”
