Sitting for so long at the sewing machine recently has left me pondering on the deeper questions of life – like this one…
Why do my friends in the States seem to have many shops with names which are ‘reduplications’ [ie two very similar rhyming words] ??
Like Hobby Lobby
and Piggly Wiggly
I confess that I would love to visit either of these shops!!
We don’t really have anything similar here – although I do have friends who refer to the discount supermarket as Lidl-Diddle
and of course many of us shop in Marks and Sparks
…but they are nicknames.
Can anyone think of a British Store whose name is a reduplication?
