A new Times column about shopping, plus new sales
Here's something new to watch for in the Tampa Bay Times: a column from retail reporter Susan Thurston about spending money.
Her first What's In Store column, which ran in Tuesday's paper, opened with a testimonial about the restorative power of retail therapy (and full-priced (!), feel-good jeans from Nordstrom). Preach, Susan. She'll also dish about new store and restaurant openings, like H&M moving into WestShore Plaza as part of the chain's Tampa Bay takeover.
Now for some sales.
Gap is offering 25 percent off sale items through Friday. Enter "gapsale" at checkout.
It's time for fall, right? Ann Taylor Loft has BOGO half-off sweaters and tops.
Macys has reduced lots of dresses by 15 percent.
