My personal shopping choices are altered. A new grocery store opened closer to my home, I had been reluctant to try it. One Saturday, I just decided to go for it. I saw so many regulars at the library, I began to wonder what they were doing there. I now know one of the places they go, when they aren't at the library.
This past Friday, I decided to try another location of the same chain, that's a neighborhood away from the library. I hadn't even reached the entrance to the store, and I saw two library patrons. Thankfully, they didn't see me before I notice them.
The only solution has been to shop at least 30 minutes outside of the city. This also limits the amount of co-workers that I run into also.
