Why doesn't West Marine...
I'm just curious why don't marine outlets like West marine and have wedding registry's? It seems like a win win situation for everyone. Perhaps this thinking is yet another reason why I am single.

Could ensure the fastest transition from married to divorced, ever recorded...

Should have said, single to married, and back to single again....all on the same day!

Yesterday, I went down to Somers Point NJ to do my food shopping after visiting my mom. Discovered there is a West Marine store across the parking lot..

I may have to shop for food in Somers Point more often :D

They do...they're called "New Boat Owner programs" ...10% off anything I bought for 6 months.

Some would say my relationship with my boat is akin to marriage :D

FWIW - has 'Wish Lists' that do the same thing. At first, you could only tag items from Amazon itself; but now you can add items from anywere on the 'net.

Over the summer, I filled my list with a bunch of items (with a variety of prices) and when someone asked what I wanted for birthday or Xmas, my loving wife would steer them to my list.

I got a bunch of stuff that I really wanted. :)

Don't get me wrong. The holidays are still a bunch of crock that I would prefer to avoid, but at least people were able to get me stuff I wanted* (and not another glove & scarf combo pack). Likewise I was able to get stuff for my kids that I knew they wanted.


*I'm not greedy or cheap; I just hate the waste of getting or giving the wrong thing.
