Reflections over a hard-to-find item
Published: Saturday 2003-10-18.
Since the dark season has arrived, I thought it was time to buy a reflector tag for my winter jacket, which has been without one since I bought it last winter. Said and done, I went to the shopping centre and started looking.
Well, that didn’t help much, there wasn’t a single shop that sold them! And that is even though I checked with the ironmonger’s, the sports shop, several clothing shops (here I was planning to link to the H&M web site, but I am turned away by a refusal script), the pharmacy, the gadget shop and the kiosk. None of them had any, so I went on to the petrol station next-door, which pointed me towards the car parts shop, who didn’t have any either, but recommended me to test the bicycle shop a block away. While they actually stocked reflector vests, they did not have any regular reflector tags.
I don’t understand, such a basic item as a reflector tag, is it supposed to be this hard to get hold of?
