Well, y’all. I was *finally* able to check out the new HomeGoods in Montgomery this past week and I’m happy to report: it’s INCREDIBLE!
That’s not actually it, but I couldn’t find a photo of it online and I wanted to show you that ours is a HomeGoods/Marshalls combo store like that one. In other words, they open up to each other from the inside, too so the whole place feels huge! I was there for nearly 3 hours the other day and I didn’t even see everything on the HomeGoods side. I never even stepped foot in the Marshalls side!
If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen the video “drive by” stories I did in the months leading up to the opening of this store. I swear, I had more comments on those posts than anything I’ve ever shared over there! 😀
The other day, I asked my Insta-friends if they’d be interested in watching a series of “HomeGoods Hump Day” stories. In a nutshell, it would be me, visiting HomeGoods each Wednesday to share decorating inspiration, ideas and advice with whoever tunes in while the stories are up. (They disappear after 24 hours) I posted a poll on one of the stories to gauge if there would be enough interest in something like that and would you believe that out of the 4000 Insta-friends that voted, 97% said yes! And that several of the people that voted “no” said they accidentally hit the wrong button- ha! 😀 Several others actually said they selected “no” because they don’t live near a HomeGoods, but when I explained that it would be more about sharing decorating inspiration that could be applied no matter where they shopped, they said they wanted to change their vote too! 😀 (I’m actually thinking it might be fun to do “Hobby Lobby Hump Day” or H&M Hump Day” sometimes too!)
Needless to say, I’m really excited to give HomeGoods Hump Day a whirl, and I wanted to blog about it here too because this Wednesday will be my first one. I’m not sure what time I’ll get there, but it won’t matter on Insta-stories, because like I said, they stay up for 24 hours. If you’re not familiar with how to watch my Instagram stories, you just click on my profile pic over there to watch:
And just an FYI- you can always tap the left side of your cell phone screen to go back to the previous video if you want to “rewind”. Same goes for the right side of your screen. You can tap it if you want to “fast forward”. And to pause an Insta-story, you just press your finger to the screen.
Anywho- we’ll see how it goes. I’ll do my best to keep the stories concise and informational and inspirational. And hopefully I can partner with HomeGoods to give away some gift cards in the near future too! 😀
I’ll be back soon with some “after” pics of the exterior of our home. The painters are finishing up one last door today and we are blown away by the transformation!
