No shopping buzz for dads


Share post:

TODAY FATHERS IN Barbados will be honoured as they join others around the world in marking Father’s Day.
But if the mood of Bridgetown yesterday is a good indicator, many fathers will not be receiving any gifts.
Few people were seen looking for gifts and store owners told the SUNDAY SUN people do not shop for Father’s Day like they do for Mother’s Day.
The shoppers included Valdean Earle, who visited Cave Shepherd on Broad Street, looking for the perfect gift for her father, who will also celebrate his birthday shortly.
Also in the store was a father who called himself “The Good Daddy”. He was accompanied by his two daughters. He said they were probably too small to seriously consider giving gifts but he believed their mother would honour him with one.
“I plan to spend the whole day with my girls although they are going to just got daddy talking. I love my daughters bad; I believe in the two of them,” he said. (AH)
