Shop Till YOU Drop!

shoptoyoudrop If Shop Till You Drop is to continue, the group will need a new leader. Janie has all the information needed for that individual, such as malls, names of stores, driving directions, lunch suggestions, phone numbers, meeting places, etc. She will be happy to share. The group always has a great time. Are you interested to lead this group?

What’s more fun than getting with friendly people and taking off together for some serious shopping activity? “SHOP TILL YOU DROP” is just that…PLUS the perfect chance to lunch with the group in a nearby nice restaurant.

  • Shoppers, male and female, should be in good standing with U Club.
  • Shoppers should watch for monthly information in the club newsletter or by e-mail.
  • Shoppers wishing to participate must make reservations with the chairperson prior to the designated deadline. (EX…If the group’s excursion date is the 3rd Wednesday of the month, reservations would be due on the Monday prior.)
  • Shoppers would meet at a specified location to carpool to the designated locale. Departure time would be determined by distance.
  • We would need some shoppers to drive. Passengers in each car will be expected to give drivers a pre-determined amount to pay for gas.
  • At midpoint during the shopping activity, shoppers will break for lunch. This would be approximately 11:45AM.
  • “Shoppers” can resume shopping after lunch. Some drivers may wish to leave earlier than others. This can be worked out within the group.


Shopping is fun, whether it be “window shopping” or the real thing…we are always on the lookout for that elusive bargain! Here’s your chance to join other U Club members and to hit the road for shopping and fun galore. 



Shoppers~We are heading down HWY 37 to Bedford to check out shops that several people have spoken highly of, namely “Pretty Woman” and a nice consignment shop called “Aunt Kate’s”. Bedford also has a JC Penney store, if you’re interested. Lunch will be at a recently opened sandwich shop, called Limestone Cafe that offers sandwiches with cute, interesting names, salads, soups, and beautiful, enticing desserts. Comments on their website are all favorable. We hope you will be able to join us! PS…thanks to Linda Burton, Linda Gregory, and Ann Whittridge for helping me plan for this trip.
