For those wondering why I do this, it's simple, you write down the store you visit, save all receipts, dates and times, and when you think you're not getting the deal today as you got two weeks ago, you can reference to see if you are or not. This is especially useful when it comes to car repairs, which might have had a warranty.
But, have I ever tried to force my way into a store, any store that was closing? no.
I have gone to the back of Gonella Baking and Cardinalli's Bakery early before opening, to acquire warm fresh bread straight out of their ovens.
