May 4th 2010 5:36PM in the state of north carolina, if you give a ring or anything to someone on the day of an occasion:birthday, xmas, valentines day, easter......It is considered a gift of the occasion and is not celebratory of the proposal of marriage.
Dec 19th 2006 8:04AM You cant complain about the big stores just because your a mom and pop store. I have to use the small stores because in my town there arent any whole food chain stores. when i go to a town where there is one i stock up what i can. small stores charge more, have less selection, and seem to feel like you owe it to them to shop there. Lower your profits, be competetive, and get bigger selection, and stop whining. im sure you shop at walmart and kmart. price and quality are better at bigger stores. learn and compete.
