In a post-Thanksgiving ritual, throngs of people crowded stores yesterday in the first binge of holiday shopping. At Strawbridge & Clothier's Center City store, Danielle Tippy, 3, of the Northeast, came eye to eye with a display-case doll, above. Santa Claus was handing out reindeer hats at the Gallery; Linda Mrak's niece refused to wear hers, so the Northeast woman donned it herself, at right. But it was Santa himself who held children fascinated, parents in lines and, in his red-suited arms, Jesse Miller, 4, below.

Before, you could count on burning a few calories walking from your car to the grocery store, or roaming the aisles to load up on what you needed. But that notion has gone out the car window, as major supermarket chains and big-box retailers, such as Walmart, are investing heavily in online grocery and curbside pickup. And with good reason. Online-retail analysts estimate that U.S. consumers spent about $24 billion buying groceries online last year, or about 4 percent of their total grocery spending of $591.6 billion on grocery shopping, according to the U.S. Commerce Department.

Salt. Pepper. Grass. Green. University City. Shopping. Shopping? Given the West Philadelphia neighborhood's rash of highly publicized crime in recent months - capped by the Halloween stabbing death of Vladimir Sled, a University of Pennsylvania research scientist - shopping may not be the first thing folks think of when they think about University City. But the neighborhood surrounding the Penn campus is full of shops and restaurants. With the holidays coming, Penn and area merchants have announced "Steppin' Out Nites.

Enter the glass doors and the shopping hormones start bubbling, the heart beat quickens, the thoughts practically scream through slacken jaws and drooling mouths. I want. I want. I want everything I ever wanted. And then some. Welcome to the King of Prussia shopping mall, where just about everything that can be bought in life is sold. All the big name stores are here. Macy's. Bloomies. Wanamaker's. Ann Taylor. Stern's. Brooks Brothers. Conran's. J.C. Penney.

Even though the shop-'til-you-drop lifestyle is rampant in a consumer society, few people would regard shopping for an electricity supplier as their idea of retail therapy. But lately, the state's top utility regulator has been talking about forcing every Pennsylvania electricity customer to do just that: pick from among a possibly bewildering number of power suppliers. Concerned that only about one in five customers in the Philadelphia region has broken away from the Peco Energy Co. mother ship as his or her power supplier, state Public Utility Commission Chairman Robert F. Powelson has suggested the state revamp the rules to make shopping mandatory.

There are few things the Guerrilla Gourmet likes better than dining, and one of them is shopping. So when the new Shops at Liberty Place opened, with its heady array of retail and a food court called the Buffet to boot, the lure was irresistible. Choosing among the 14 stands was not easy. The vendors include Bain's Deli, Bassett's Original Turkey, Chick-fil-A, Everything Yogurt and Sbarro, plus purveyors of sushi, Mexican, gyros, Chinese and cheesesteaks. The best thing to do is wander and pick what looks freshest, which can vary depending on the time of day. Late one weekday afternoon - 4:10 p.m. to be exact - the pizza at Montesini Pizza and Ristorante still looked inviting, even though lunchtime was long past.

The TV weather map shows smiling raindrops and a cheery sun peeking out from behind thunderbolts, but that's not what's outside my door. Here at the Shore, it's cloudy and cool; the sun is on vacation. No one is eager to get to the beach, and because the food level in my house drops as fast as the barometric pressure, I use the morning hours to get groceries. Two hundred dollars later, the pantry is stocked, and the lousy weather shows no signs of disappearing. We eat lunch and snack our way through a puzzle, two games of Pictionary, and a 007 movie.

International travelers often are unpleasantly surprised to discover that food markets abroad may not supply shopping carts, or even bags. What a great time to have on hand one of Picnic Time's lightweight collapsible baskets. The 15.8-by-8.5-by-10-inch Urban Basket has a stationary aluminum handle against which the polyester body folds, accordionlike, to 2 inches thick, secured with a snap closure. A removable inner padded "floorboard" provides extra stability flattened; or fold up half the panel to divide the basket into two sections.

It was an exclusive shopping party of sorts at area Clover stores on Sunday evening. Only senior citizens and people with disabilities were invited. In the Feasterville store, Girl Scouts caroled through the aisles, and singer Dean Garofolo, 27, belted out Christmas tunes over a microphone at the store entrance. Shoppers picked up free cookies, brownies and coffee along with the bargains they put in their carts. The 25 area Clover stores offered a storewide discount of 10 percent to its senior and disabled shoppers and gave them a coupon book with deeper discounts on such items as clothes, watches, jewelry and perfume.

The shopping season is over. In the NFL, the days from Feb. 15, when free agency begins, to the first couple of weeks of training camp, in essence, constitute the shopping season. It is a time when teams seek the best talent to serve their needs. This shopping season, the Eagles wanted to upgrade their defensive line, offensive line, special teams, wide receiving corps, defensive backfield and, if possible, linebacker position. Fortified with the best salary-cap situation in the league, they went shopping.

The owner of the ShopRite supermarket in Cherry Hill's Garden State Pavilion center will appeal the Township Council's vote Monday to allow gas stations in certain business zones, saying the ordinance illegally favors a proposed Costco store, his lawyer said. "We're making many legal objections to this ordinance," Stuart Platt said Tuesday, "but the primary defect is that this is illegal spot zoning" intended solely to favor Costco, a chain of members-only discount stores. Platt represents Steven Ravitz, president of Racetrack Supermarkets L.L.C., which operates the affected ShopRite near the proposed Costco.

Mark Obert-Thorn remembers what it was like to grow up a classical-record listener in Philadelphia of a certain era.   I started buying classical records around 1973, when I was still in high school. At first, I got them at the suburban malls out near where I lived. But on the special occasions when I'd go in town, my favorite record store was Franklin Music. They had two locations on Chestnut Street, both of which eventually became Sam Goody's: one at 11th, and another at 8th. The first one was bigger, but I preferred the other one because of the special treasures they had there.

The T-shirt election on the Jersey Shore boardwalks is indicating a clear winner - Donald Trump. Or maybe, as Arie Naccache said as he stood outside his Wildwood shop, people just "like the jokey ones. " For whatever reason, visitors at the Shore are snapping up shirts with pro-Trump themes more frequently than those backing the Republican presidential candidate's expected Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton. And, yes, there's a wide variety of shirts with Trump's trademark slogan, "Make America Great Again.

We went shoe shopping with Penn orthopedic surgeon Kate O'Connor's advice in hand to see what gear would fit her suggestions. Our first stop was at the Walking Company at the Bellevue in Center City, where store manager Amy Collins said her footsore customers go for ABEO biomechanical footwear, which is more attractive than it might sound. Collins said ABEO's B.I.O. system technology aims to create the appropriate level of support with built-in orthotics. To get the right fit, customers' feet are digitally scanned in the store.

GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP, N.J. - The 28th ShopRite LPGA Classic probably deserved better. We're not talking about Sunday's weather forecast, which prompted tournament officials to move up the final-round tee times to early morning in order to finish before the nasty stuff was projected to arrive. That meant no live coverage on the Golf Channel. Only tape-delayed instead, from Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club. Not the same. But when Mother Nature happens . . . Sometimes it's simply your turn to take a hit. The field was another matter.

GALLOWAY, N.J. - Anna Nordqvist started playing golf at home in Sweden when she was 12 years old, while Annika Sorenstam - another Swede - was well on her way toward dominating the LPGA Tour, where she finished with 72 wins, including 10 major titles. The achievements of Sorenstam, who retired in 2008, were remembered Sunday at the ShopRite LPGA Classic when Nordqvist tied her record for lowest 54-hole score and posted a 1-stroke victory in the tournament at Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club.

GALLOWAY, N.J. - Karine Icher kept making birdies in bunches Saturday at the ShopRite LPGA Classic, but she chose not to keep track of them, preferring rather to count them up as soon as her final putt hit the bottom of the cup. Once she did count them up, the score came out to a 9-under-par 62, tying the tournament course record and moving the 37-year-old citizen of France into a 1-stroke lead after two rounds of the $1.5 million event over the Bay...
