Local Shopping in Dartmouth

Most people think of Dartmouth Massachusetts as a great town to live in. There is almost nothing bad about this town. It has everything you need to live comfortably. Living in this town for my whole life I came to realize not many people know of all the local small owned businesses in this town. “Non-profit organizations receive an average 250% more support from smaller business owners than they do from large businesses” (Why buy Locally Owned). After doing much research it is safe to say that people should be more informed about supporting local because it is not only helping the business, it is opening up opportunities.

I’ve always been supporting locally and I wish more people that I know would too. I want Dartmouth to find a way to get more people knowledgeable about these small businesses. Local business owners live and invest in their community. “This makes them less likely to leave and more likely to be invested in how their business decisions affect the community” (Nine reasons). A neighboring town of Dartmouth is New Bedford and I know that that city has a great way of promoting people to shop locally in their town. They put up signs post many things on groups and Facebook pages. Bigger business help promote them too. Dartmouth needs to do these same methods to get more people knowing about what they have to offer.

I feel like a very effective method of grabbing the attention of the community to shop local business it to announce it in the high school systems. If we get the younger generation shopping locally it will most likely get the older generations too. “Small, locally-owned businesses provide the largest share of net new jobs generated each year and also provide the most stable employment opportunities in a community” (Nine reasons). Many of the young high school teen age students are looking for jobs everywhere. What better way to get a first job then to work at a local business in town. Not only will it get students jobs but then it will promote to other students and families of the employees at these local businesses about shopping locally. They will want to see what this place is about.

There are many good reasons why Dartmouth needs more people to know about the local businesses in the town but I feel like everyone should know the most important thing about local businesses. Local businesses often hire people that are great with customer service, almost better customer service than a larger business (Nine Reasons). If the town knew that there are people that are so friendly and helpful and care about you and the community more people would shop locally and I feel like if Dartmouth takes a few steps in trying to promote these local businesses in other larger company’s or in some of the schools more people would help these businesses get better business and better customers.

Dear Reader

School had never been my favorite thing. Especially when it comes to writing. I’ve never felt confident about any of my writing throughout high school and when I graduated I was hesitant in continuing my education and going to college because of my lack of practicing writing skills. I decided that in these tough times continuing school was my best option. Coming to Bristol Community College I was nervous. Walking around from building to building intimidated me. It was my first day of classes and I walked into my ENG 101 class. I wasn’t sure what to expect because I was in college now and I didn’t know how English class was taught here. Sitting down in my seat I had positive thoughts in my head ready to give my best effort for my first semester being a college student and learning to become a better writer and researcher.

My first post is the first essay assignment I had to write, a memoir about home. Reading the assignment and grading criteria I thought, this seems like such an easy topic to write about, my life experiences, memories all related to my home. I soon came to realize that this wasn’t as easy as I thought it seemed. I decided I was going to write about the first home I ever lived in. It was somewhat of a struggle to write about this because I was very young living in this house and I wasn’t living in the house for very long but that home was where my life changed forever. It got me to really feel deep emotions about my life and I truly wrote a memoir about how my home related to an extremely life changing event in my life.

My second post is the second assignment. Research about a certain trend with an annotated bibliography included. I decided to choose the topic McMansions. I choose this topic because I was unsure what a McMansion was. I have always been interested in regular mansions and wanted to see what the difference was between them. I first researched the term on some of the schools online databases and other credible websites and I found out that McMansions were just considered large houses that were standing out in neighborhoods. It was such a great topic to research because I felt like this was one of the harder topics to choose and I’m glad I gave myself that challenge. Not only did I find out what McMansions were but I found out who lived in these houses and how some houses weren’t you’re everyday living house. The research part of this assignment made me a little nervous because I was never a big researcher when it came to school papers. But, after this assignment I feel like I learned a lot about what are the right websites and books to use for sources. My skills in researching have improved extremely and I am no longer intimidated or nervous about doing research on a subject.

The last post was the third assignment the class was given, a shopping ethnography. I was really excited for this assignment it seemed fun a very different from anything I have every written about before. I didn’t know what ethnography was but I was very eager to find out. The only store that came to my mind when this essay came up was a clothing store at the local mall, Hot Topic. This store was a risk because I have never shopped there before, it wasn’t my style but I felt like it related to Gladwell’s writing. I found this essay very challenging because of all that I had to take in when in the store from the lighting to the customer service to everything in between. I found the hardest part was getting everything I saw in person and describing it on paper. Overall this essay was a great way to get me thinking about how stores are set up and if they are a successful store or not.

My first semester of college was challenging. I should have never felt nervous about English class because it has taught me so much. This class made me more comfortable about writing and observing things in the world. I am a better researcher coming out of this semester; I never thought that I would actually enjoy researching about different topics. Thank you for reading my work I hope you enjoy it.

Thank you,

Memoir about Home (Essay 1)

Posted by: | December 10, 2013 | No Comment |

I drive by my old house almost every day, and every time I drive by I think of something different. I hope they never tear down my sister’s tree. The one she always hid under when she had to “go”. It makes me laugh when I think about things like that. My old wooden swing set still resting in the yard, I wonder if the kids still play on it. The view of the water was breath taking and almost like it was a painted picture on a wall. How I wish I was able to see this. We buried a small statue in the ground when we first moved in to bring luck to our family. I’m just wondering where the luck went.

I never wanted my family to go their own ways. Some days I feel like I don’t know them anymore. I feel like the connection between us all has faded but I guess that is what happens with a divorce. The day my parents told they were going to separate was a day I will never forget. I remember they sat me and my sister down separately and when they finished all I could think to do was run into their bedroom and lock myself in there, for hours. All the emotions running through my mind was so hard to cope with. Where was I going to live what was going to happen to this house. We had only been living here for 3 years. Was I leaving Dartmouth all together? If I did end up moving to Plymouth with my dad would my life have been better? I ask myself these questions all the time. Should I have started a “new life?” “You can either live with me, or your mother” my dad said to me as a cried at the fact that I would have to choose.

I was 5 years old in kindergarten when I first saw what my father was building. He was rebuilding a small one floor half destroyed house into something big new and well-designed house, it amazed me. My mom, dad, I and my younger sister Emily finally moved in. As I looked up to the sky and stared at this shingled house it was the best place I’ve ever seen. Walking in the smell of newly finished floors, and the brightness of the pinks and purples my sister and I picked for the colors of our rooms, this would be where I grow up and experience my childhood and young adult life. All my memories are going to be from here this was home.

Thinking back to that moment of first walking in to that house on Elm Street comes back to me often many times in my life. Now being 18 years old I most frequently think about what it looks like now several years later. Moving day was a blur and sometimes I still don’t understand why. Maybe I wasn’t as excited as I thought I was about moving into this new big house. The first thing that did excite me though was walking up the stairs to the second floor where my room was. It felt great to finally have my own room where I could do anything there. My room would be my safe place so I thought.

I never thought I was going to have to leave my new home. I remember how the house looked like before it was redone.  An old beat down house that needed a lot of work. I thought it was incredible that my dad was going to add a whole new floor to this house. My family was finally all settled in and there were no worries in our lives. Getting all the pets we had brought us all even closer taking care of the two black kittens and are yellow lab pup, it was a handful. It makes me sad that I don’t live with them anymore. I don’t recall my parents ever fighting so when they separated I was in complete shock and being so young it was hard to understand.

The last day at Elm Street was tough on my emotions. I was happy I was staying in my town, but sad to say goodbye to my dad.  He was the one who always pushed me to do everything. He wasn’t going to be right down the hall way anymore; he was going to be miles away from me. Packing up my last boxes looking through everything, realizing this was it. The last time I was going to be in my bedroom. The old family pictures I once have on my bureau been now being packed in the very top of the box. Part of me didn’t want to have these pictures anymore because after all to me it feels like we are not a family anymore.

The McMansion Trend (Essay 2)

Posted by: | December 10, 2013 | No Comment |

The term “McMansion” refers to an oversized home containing 3,000 to 5,000 square feet of living space (“What Is a McMansion”). Over the years this term has become more and more popular. These McMansion lovers like to spend their stuff on bigger and better things and make their house stand out in neighborhoods. The average size of a McMansion house is stated to have an area of 3,000 square feet and 9-10 feet high (“What is a McMansion”).  The National Association of Home Builders has reports that the average home size in 1950 was 983 square feet, and in 1970 it has gradually grown to be 1,500 square feet and 2004 in 2,349 (Smith). McMansions are a trend because the growth in the size of houses in areas where normally large houses aren’t built has grown even more according to statistics.

In 2005 the square footage of the houses was 2,434 (Smith). Over the years the size of houses has grown, people want their house to be the new thing, that’s why these McMansions are built usually in a quick amount of time because people want to be seen. But, quite recently McMansions are going out of style. Could this be a new trend, the downfall of McMansions? In 2009, for the first time in 15 years the size of houses has been decreasing (Kiviat). People want to put good use out of these gigantic homes. They are going to be hard to sell because they are so big and more and more people want to downsize and be able to have everything they need in a smaller space.

People are now finding ways to use this McMansions for other things. Like for example, a home for autistic adults, and for kids aging out of foster care (Kiviat). Others have thought of converting these giant homes into greenhouses (Kiviat). Overall McMansions are most definitely a trend and even though they are declining in the recent days and were more popular in the early 2000s. These giant homes aren’t going to waste and will continue to be used and lived in for the years to come (Kiviat).

Shopping at Hot Topic (Essay 3)

Posted by: | December 10, 2013 | No Comment |

The Dartmouth mall, a medium-sized mall lies in the middle of this college town. Many well-known stores are here, but the store that intrigues me the most is Hot Topic. This isn’t your typically store because the look of the store is a grudge gothic look. The customers shopping here seemed to know exactly what they wanted when they come into this store, since it had a certain style; the people that walked in fit the stores style very well because their style was a dark all black punk style to be exact. This was the store I chose to write my shopping ethnography on connecting this store to Paco Underhill’s theories of the science of shopping. I started my observation from a bench directly outside of Hot Topic and then I decided to go in and get a closer look at everything once I was finished observing from afar.

I personally never have shopped here which is why I choose to observe this store. Watching who shopped here was quite an experience because the store wasn’t so busy on the day I was observing. It gave me an eerie feeling about going inside. But when I did see customers walk inside it was mostly women or girls, ages were early teens to early twenties. Men did shop here too but not nearly as many and they were either by themselves or with a female. The women shopping were either alone, with a group of friends or with a small family.

When I first saw Hot Topic the bright grayish bold name of the store stood out against the black brick it is. They sell all kinds of merchandise here including clothing for men and women like band t-shirts and skinny jeans in many colors for the girls. They sold body piercing accessories from belly button rings to gauges and lip piercings. They also sold other miscellaneous accessories like backpacks with strange looking animals on them and rainbow colored belts, they had wide variety music to buy, and even candy and munchies to snack on. In the only display window in this store lays a big picture ad for the movie “Anchorman 2 the Legend Continues” the ad shows the main star of the movie Will Ferrell holding a paper like a typical anchorman would hold. I’m unsure of what that movie was about but it had definitely caught my eye and I assumed that anyone interested in that film would be thrilled they carried merchandise about the movie because I did not see it offered in any other store in this mall.

Once walking in the store I was welcomed by the only staff member in the store, I was surprised because this doesn’t typically happen every time I walk into a store. It must have been because I observed on a slow day for Hot Topic.  From what I saw, the employee was a very friendly man with lots of tattoos. He fit the look of the store very well but did not scare me off which was my first thought when walking in and spotting him. From what I observed he did not bother any of the customers unless they had a question or needed help reaching something because some of the merchandise is displayed high up on the walls of the store. I watched a young girl with her mother ask the employee if she could try on clothes and he happily brought them to the dressing room and told them if they needed any help to please ask him. I then decided to ask him about some of the jewelry sizes so I could buy the right size piercing for my friend. He knew exactly what I was talking about and pointed it out and informed me about a bogo sale that was going on.

In Gladwell’s article “The Science of Shopping” he talks about the decompression zone which is the part of the store where the customers don’t see anything and is usually located right in the front of the store (Gladwell). I believe that in Hot Topic this rule doesn’t apply fully. The store is very small and when first walking in there is sort of a walkway to an oddly shaped table with merchandise. That was the first thing I saw when I walked inside Hot Topic. This store has found their own way to catch the customer’s attention not following what Paco Underhill thinks of stores and shopping.

From what I observed the main clientele of this store is primarily female, when you walk in the front of the store has all of the women’s clothing to the right and all of the men’s clothing to the left. This happens to follow one of Underhill’s theories. “The Invariant Right” means that most people when shopping turn to the right, Paco stated that this is because most people are right handed” (Gladwell). And women are the main customers here and almost every woman I saw walk in went right towards the right side of the store and started browsing through the clothing.

Making my way through the store I find myself enjoying the far back of the store. This is where all the sale items were, I decided to look through some of the sale items and I was in shock of what was on sale. There was a shirt with holes all cut throughout it, the clothing were so un real and strange looking I knew there was a reason for it being on sale and at that point I didn’t think the sale section was right for me. The dressing room and fitting area was also in this area, the dressing room was a bright red and black room that seemed to give me a dirty feeling, even though the store was not dirty at all but those two colors together just seemed to give me that feeling. In Gladwell” article Paco stated approximately 91% of customers penetrate to Zone 4; it is about ¾ of the way into the store (Gladwell). Also at this part of the store were all of the “Destination Items” (Gladwell). Basically every item you needed to complete an outfit including belts, bras, hats, socks and all of the shoes. Since the dressing room was near all of these items it was easy and convenient for customers to quickly swap things out.

From what I noticed this store was also trying to target the male customer clientele but it seemed to be failing. They might have to find different ways to target more males into here. One this I noticed that did target men were all of their jeans were either black or dark blue and had maybe three different cuts/style of them. This follows Paco’s theories because he says “You want to take to basics” referring to men “That is a big deal to guys they are always screwing up colors states Paco” (Gladwell). Even though I didn’t see many men shopping when I observed I feel like Hot Topic is truly trying to be a great store for both male and female.

Right before I was going to buy my item for my friend, I looked at all the items right in front of the checkout. Like I said early most shoppers knew exactly what they were looking for, but I did notice that most people when paying looked at all the small accessories and food product and about 1 out of every 5 customers decided to buy something from those front items. There was makeup that caught my eye right away, which I grabbed last minute recalling that I could always use some more makeup and then I continued to check out. At that moment I realized they have tricked me, this makeup was $10.99! I didn’t realize the price because this store followed one of Paco’s theories the cash/wrap area (Gladwell). This is where all the last minutes buying are and Paco also states that this is where you should put all the small and somewhat pricey items (Gladwell).

The overall experience I had observing and watching people in Hot Topic was quite interesting. I learned that this store and I’m sure many other stores follow some but not all of Paco Underhill’s theories of shopping (Gladwell). It is important that a store is unique and different but also pay attention to the customers and look at this statistics of how people shop and why.

Memoir Essay 1 (Rough Draft)

Posted by: | October 9, 2013 | 2 Comments |

When I first saw what my father was building amazed me. He was rebuilding a small one floor half destroyed house into something big and bold looking. My mom, dad, I and my younger sister Emily finally moved in. As I looked up to the sky and stared at this shingled house it was the best place I’ve ever seen. Walking in the smell of newly finished floors, and the brightness of the pinks and purples my sister and I picked for the colors of our rooms hit me, this would be where I grow up and experience my childhood and young adult life. All my memories are going to be from here this was home.

Thinking back to that moment first walking in to that house on Elm Street comes back to my memory many times in my life. I most frequently think about what it looks like now seven years later. I wonder if things would have been different if my parents had stayed together. Before moving into that house we lived in an apartment in the city not too far away. Sometimes it’s hard for me to remember memories from that home. Moving day was a blur and sometimes I still don’t understand why. Maybe I wasn’t as excited as I thought I was. The first thing that did excite me was walking up the stairs to the second floor where my room was. It felt great to finally have my own room where I could do anything there. My room would be my safe place so I thought.

I never thought I was going to have to leave my new home. I remember how the house looked like before it was redone.  An old beat down house that needed a lot of work. I thought it was incredible that my dad was going to add a whole new floor to this house. My family was finally a whole once everything was settled. I don’t recall my parents fighting ever so when they separated I was in complete shock and being so young it was hard to understand. Getting all the pets we had brought us all even closer taking care of the two black kittens and are yellow lab pup, it was a handful. It makes me sad that I don’t live with them anymore.

I drive by my old house almost every day and every time I drive by I think of something different. I hope they never tear down my sister’s tree. The one she always hid under when she had to “go”. It makes me laugh when I think about things like that. My old wooden swing set still rest in the yard, I wonder if the kids still play on it. The view of the water was breath taking and almost like it was a painted picture on a wall. How I wish I was able to see this. We buried a small statue in the ground when we first moved it to bring luck to our family. I’m just wondering where the luck went. I never wanted my family to go their own ways. Some days I feel like I don’t know them anymore. I feel like the connection between us all is gone. The day my parents told they were going to separate was a day I will never forget. I remember they sat me and my sister down separately and when they finished all I could think to do was run into their bedroom and lock myself in there, for hours. All the emotions running through my mind was so hard to cope with. Where was I going to live what was going to happen to this house. We have only been living here for 3 years. Was I leaving Dartmouth all together? If I did end up moving to Plymouth with my dad would my life have been better? I ask myself these questions all the time. Should I have started a “new life?”

The last day at Elm Street was bittersweet. I was happy I was staying in my town, but sad to say goodbye to my dad.  He was the one that always pushed me to do everything. He wasn’t going to be right down the hall way anymore; he was going to be miles away from me. Packing up my last boxes looking through everything realizing this was it. The last time I was going to be in my bedroom. The old family pictures I once have on my bureau been now being packed in the very top of the box. Part of me didn’t want to have these pictures anymore because after all to me it feels like we are not a family anymore.

Small Stones (Week 4)

Posted by: | October 9, 2013 | No Comment |

The flags sway in the sky, like dancing to the air flowing in their own ways.

Cloud in the sky looks like a stick, I look away. There is no cloud in the sky

Longer pieces of grass move with the wind. Leaves fly away, like they are leaving their homes.
