Poor old St. George. He just doesn’t seem to have the same superstar status as other patron saints, Patrick and David – despite the fact that he was a slayer of mighty dragons. His big day is just around the corner though, which means that a celebration of sorts will be in order.
Now, if there were a patron saint of home shopping, who would they be, and what would we be thanking them for? Banishing sore feet from high streets across the land? Protecting us from bad shopping decisions, made in the heat of an overcrowded changing room? Or simply for making sure that everything we could ever possibly need can now be purchased from the comfort of our very own living rooms? St. Superconvenient – they’ve just been anointed – we salute you!
There’s no doubt that home shopping has completely revolutionised the purchasing experience, changing the way we think, act and make decisions when we are shopping – and all for the better, too. Though there is still something to be said for having a mooch along the high street and meeting friends for lunch, most of us are so busy running homes and juggling careers that what we want is convenience above all else. We want a one-stop-shop – preferably no more than three paces from the sofa – where we can purchase clothes that are hand-picked by buyers who know what we like. So, if St. Superconvenient ever did make it into the national calendar, there’s no doubt that he would have very strong connections to certain home shopping websites!
Home shopping allows us to take that all-important ‘me time’, whether it’s in the morning over a coffee or after work in the evening, when kids, partners and animals are fed and there’s half an hour spare, to enjoy as we please. And even if we’re not looking for anything in particular, just having the luxury of browsing through a huge range of things we might like to buy is a little treat in itself. We are far more likely to make sensible decisions when we have time to consider things carefully. We’re all familiar with shoppers’ remorse, brought on when he head out to buy sensible trousers for work, and come home with something that is anything but sensible and definitely not for work!
So, to the man, woman or team who came up with the home shopping concept, the great shopping public hereby confers the title of St. Superconvenient upon thy head(s)!
