I've had conversations with young people lately about a concept that they just can't seem to wrap their heads around. And that's partly because you don't see or hear it advertised.
It was called putting things "on layaway".
This was when you picked out what you wanted to buy and took it to the cashier...
There lies a shop in downtown Billings that is a shapeshifting pop-up shop, that has seen success with two separate concepts in the past. But, with no word since January, they're due to open again fairly soon.
Instead of adding some rarely bought items to my grocery list, I just sit down at my laptop, and with a couple of clicks, my much-needed item is on its way. And it won't be forgotten on my next visit to the store.
