11. Inquire About Holds
Do you work a job where the operating hours are almost the same as your favorite store? What if you know of a big blowout sale that is coming up? Unfortunately, you usually can’t skip out on work to go shopping! If you know that a big deal is coming up at Hobby Lobby and you don’t want to miss it, you can always call ahead and have the item placed on hold for you. This way, it is guaranteed that you will have the product when you arrive at the store later.
The only further action we can suggest here is to make sure you show up when you say you’re going to be there. Many stores will only hold an item for 24 hours, so you need to go and pick it up before it gets put back on the shelves for sale. Sometimes you can have things on hold for longer depending on the store and circumstance, but you usually have to pay ahead first. This should be no problem for you because it is all good as long as you get the sale at the end of the day!
