St. George Businesses That NEED To Start Selling Merch!
Every time you go to a concert, you see people selling their "Merch" AKA Merchandise. I love a good Merch Shirt! It definitely helps me remember the occasion!
Here are the Southern Utah Businesses I would DEFINITELY buy merch from if they sold it!
1. D.I. (Deseret Industries)
It's the Mormon Thrift Shop that we all know and love. Also, why does EVERY D.I. have a VERY distinct smell?
2. Judd's Store
Judd's Store dates back to like... The 1500's! Everyone has been to Judd's. Now, you'd probably go for some candy, unique sodas, or soup!
3. Dutchman's Market
If you've never been to Dutchman's Market... WHATCHA EVEN DOIN?! It's the gas station ALMOST to Santa Clara. They have a whole section of the store where you can buy crafty stuff, AND an it's an incredibly underrated place to buy cookies and brownies!
I LOVE DURANGOS! It goes Durango's, Rio, Costa for me... But that order changes nearly EVERYDAY! It honestly depends on what you're in the mood for!
Soup & Quesadillas? Durangos
Burrito & Dressing? Costa
5. Your Family Still Matters: Paintball, Food Storage and Violins!
This one OBVIOUSLY goes without saying! It's a mouthful, and they do it all! I SO BADLY want this shirt now! Paintball. Food Storage. Violins. Gets me EVERY TIME!
YES: Facebook Groups We NEED In Southern Utah
If you live in Southern Utah, you're probably a part of a few Facebook groups!
The big ones:
- St. George Word of Mouth
- Southern Utah Yard Sale
- What's Happening in Cedar City and Iron County
- St. George Yard Sale
But.. I think we need MORE!
Here are my best ideas for Facebook Groups in Southern Utah!
Can someone please start a group about the traffic in The Gorge? If I'm headed to mesquite, am I going to be stuck for 45 minutes without phone service? Should I go the back way through Ivins! Come on! Someone get this started!
MILFS & DILFS of Southern Utah:
Us parents are getting a little older now, and less hot! We need a confidence boost! You know how good I would feel about myself If someone posted an anonymous photo of me eating all the samples at Costco?! I would LOVE THAT!
Southern Utah Nosy Neighbors:
Screw celebrity gossip! I want to know about your neighbors! Did the cops show up and arrest one of them? I want to know! Did the neighborhood "Karen" call the HOA President about your lawn gnome? I want to know! Did your next door neighbors get into a shirts-off-fist-fight on their front lawn? I want to know about it!
Southern Utah Swingers:
Look... We know they exist! They're here. I just want to know who they are. I'm not wanting to join in on their shenanigans, but I just want to know if anyone I interact with is about that life! It's curiosity more than anything!
Don't Go To These Local Restaurants:
Did you have a bad experience? Do you want to whine about it? I WANT TO HEAR ABOUT IT! Every post can be anonymous. Maybe the server was rude to you, or the food was awful. Honestly, I just want to know before I waste my money there too!
Southern Utah Hidden Cops:
We've all done it... Maybe we're speeding a little and before you know it: BOOM! Cop is there hiding! Let's get an app going for this one as well. Where did you see the cop hiding out? I just want to know to slow down BEFORE I reach that place on Bluff Street!
Southern Utah Missed Connections:
This one would be AWESOME! But only if it's HUGE! Like everyone in town is on it. Have you ever been to like... Albertson's and you keep making eye contact with the cute gal in produce, but you don't have the guts to say anything? Once you leave, post on the page "CUTE GIRL IN PRODUCE AT ALBERTSON'S! I WANT YOU!" Chances are she'll see it and be like "YES! Thank you for posting! I wasn't brave enough either!" This is a great idea! I'm just trying to make a love connection out here!
