If we can all agree on something, it’s that New York is a great place to shop. Everything thing there is so much bigger than I could even imagine. Wether its a good thing or a bad thing I could tell you, I just know that I love shopping. So as promised I will be sharing some of the places I went to in Times Square.
It was about eleven o’clock at night and the city was bursting with life. We had decided that after our long day of walking, we would go back out and look at all the stores that New York had to offer. The first store we went to was the Disney store. Now yes I know it seems very childish to go into a store, that is basically only for kids. But I’m telling you if your a Disney fan (like me) then it’s totally worth it. The detail that they put into that store is out of this world. There are two floors and they have all the latest Disney merchandise. As you go up to the second floor, there are these decorations that hang down from the ceiling that are shadows of certain Disney characters. Like Peter pan, Ariel, Rupunzel, Aurora, and so on. There are like a hundred different colors on the walls, there was a castle you can walk through in the store (it was really cool!). Now if you have kids, cousins, nieces, nephews, etc. then you have to take them or at least buy them something from here. It was just so cool and even though it was almost twelve o’clock in the morning there was still baby’s and little kids running around the store. Talk about die hard fans.
The next place we went to was the M&M store. Now this place was funny. It had hundreds of different colored M&M’s. They also had different ones representing different countries and their flags. Not only that but the green M&M was dressed as the Statue of Liberty which was huge (So funny). Don’t forget about the merchandise. They had back packs, pencils, pj’s, slippers, etc. I didn’t buy anything here since I was trying to stay away from buying chocolate (basically my favorite thing in the world). Now it doesn’t stop there we actually went to the Hershey store as well. They had just as much merchandise as the M&M store (pretty much the same things that I listed for the M&M store just with Hershey’s candy). Instead of different colored candy they had big chocolate bars like Hershey, Peanut butter cups, Kit Kats, etc. it was just insane, they even had a giant Hershey kiss. Even though I didn’t buy anything at these stores but the experience was worth the trip (especially if you want to do the fun tourist stuff like going to the shops)
In New York they seem to go to the extreme with each store that they have. Especially Americas favorite stores (cough cough Hershey). When we went there were a lot of tourists, so you gotta push and shove your way in there but it was totally worth the experience. By the end of the night we were ready to kill the next person that bumped into us, but don’t worry we didn’t. (Secretly though I felt like a New Yorker if I’m being honest). Hope you enjoyed my post!
