  • Dennis Hicks

    nike town

  • Nicole D. C

    Wal-Mart because i can get everything I need.
    Or Kohl’s so I can have a new wardrobe.

  • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

    I would choose a nice furniture store. We just closed on our new home in Florida yesterday and I have a house devoid of any furniture. We went there and I had to sit on the floor!

    • Denise N.

      Congratulations on your closing! I hope you enjoy furniture shopping!

      • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

        Thanks so much Denise! We were in the store for hours yesterday!

        • Denise N.

          You must have picked out some very beautiful pieces! But sounds like a long day. I hope ou got to rest. Two hours out and about and I need a few days to recuperate lol.

          • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

            Thanks, Denise! I’m exhausted and my back is killing me. My husband is ten years older than me and he just keeps going and going. He’s like a kid in a candy shop! LOL

    • Sowmya

      Congratulations Diane. I love furniture shopping too.

      • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

        Thanks so much, Sowmya!

    • Deb

      How exciting!! A new house and new furniture…..Congrats!!

      • Diane Krumenaker Eugenio

        Thanks, Deb!

  • Rosanne Craig Best

    I would choose Michael’s. I love to do many crafts but I love to do Acrylic & Oil painting. Since it is an expensive hobby I know exactly which Aisles to hit is the shortest amount of time to pick up paints, brushes, canvas, easel, and frames. I truly would feel like a kid in a candy store.

  • dottie p

    any good furniture store. with the baby coming, i need a couple of adult beds, a crib, and other furniture.

  • Sarah Turner

    Wal-Mart because they have all my baby needs, I could get so much in five minutes.

  • Melissa Furr

    I’d have to say food lion, because I have two teenage girls that can eat their weight in snack food at least three times a day…that’s on top of three meals a day. God bless fast metabolism.

  • Tracy Dunn

    Walmart

  • Noel Stewart

    I would love to win a shopping spree in any grocery store. In 5 minutes I could stock up for several months.

  • Jennifer B.

    I would choose Target because I am there all the time anyway and I know the layout like the back of my hand! I can swoop through books, movies, music, videogames, toys, baby, kids clothing, and shoes for family things. If time allows, fly on over to the wine aisle for mommy things!

  • Jijie Paran-Forsythe

    This is a very exciting question. Canon store — i will pick up all their L lenses (85L, 50L, 70-200L, a softbox, g7x, a 1Dx and 5D mark IV. That is if I don’t have to pay for it. Lol.

  • Beth Stone

    I would choose Meijer and do a grocery run! I love them, because they have everything all in one place. They also have one of the best cashiers in the world! My husband! 🙂

  • edeliz

    I would choose Home Depot or Lowe’s. I’d get lamps, kitchen remodeling items and maybe materials for an outdoor living area.

  • Erin Estilette

    Target!! I freaking love Target! Just.. hopefully it would be at a time when they have cute clothes and not the hideous stuff I sometimes see there.

  • Dijzhonna Williams

    Walmart because it has basically a whole house in there food, groceries, furniture, health-care etc.

  • Paul Clément

    Not likely to happen but I would choose a jewelry store, grab all the gold and diamonds I could, and later trade them in for their cash value and donate the money to the Children’s Wish Foundation. All I need now is a willing jewelry store. Lol!

  • Maddie Lessard

    The meat shop (Butcher shop) as long as I’m allowed to go behind the counter and help myself. 🙂

  • Merm123

    Mac’s Convenience store to buy a lottery ticket!

  • Julie Dascoli-Yanop

    The liquor store!!! LOL a year’s supply of wine!

  • Maritza

    Hobby lobby. I would get all the ribbon and mesh. And try to get anything else related to making wreaths.

  • Nisha

    Mine would obviously be at Mercedes dealership and buy all the cars 😉 I’d keep one good car for me and sell the rest 🙂

  • Robert Stoever

    There is no question in my mind, to me this is a no-brainer. I am a techno-nut and I could do some real damage in Best Buy. I would be able to fill a number of pallets but not all of my acquisitions would be personal. I would either directly donate items to charity, especially children’s charity, but also to homeless shelters. If necessary I would sell items on eBay to raise money for these charities.

  • justinkeene

    I would have to say the grocery store. Grab as many grocies at possible to feed my family

  • Mrs Ed

    FOOD! In a high-end grocery mart, that carries fresh, quality meats, and produce. I LOVE to cook, but I can’t afford to buy what I want. So yes, I would choose a grocery store.

  • Paula Meyer

    Sam’s Club, because of the meat section. They have the prettiest and best tasting meats. I would probably load up on RibEyes. Yum!!

  • ramadevi

    I chose nice curtains for my home from IKEA, right now I am planning to change the curtains for my home. They are old and it is time to get them change.

  • Brian Vaughn

    Probably Best Buy or Walmart. Grab as many Flat Screen’s, headphones, and video games as I could fit in a cart.

  • Chris

    If I won a 5-minute shopping spree to any store, it would be COSTCO!!! Crab legs and lobster, Ahi and steak, champagne and beer (can I pick what state I want to have this spree in? Costco in Idaho does not have hard liquor), maybe a big screen television…Is there fine print on this 5-minute spree?? A new laptop and printer, and some new kitchen appliances, and maybe some new shoes….Can I come back later to exchange if I get the wrong thing???

  • Sue W.

    Ikea….I would have my house redecorated…I can do a lot of damage in 5 minutes!

  • Ratna Fernandez

    I would choose a really good supermarket and get as much food as possible

  • Colleen Goodbrand

    I would go to my favourite needlework store and grab handfuls of the latest cross stitch charts by my favourite designers. And then empty the aisle, in the same store, that contains all the beautiful but expensive and imported fabrics for use with the designer charts. And sewing needles. And needlework frames. And needlework magazines…. you get the drift!

  • shawna

    target, for the fact that they have cute everything and all the healthy food snacks i enjoy !!

  • Casimina Doner

    It would have to be GameStop. I could get birthday christmas and anniversary done in prob less then five minutes LOL My three boys and hubby are all gamers! 🙂

  • scott jamison

    I would have to say K-Jewlers. Because, well, gold & silver could be sold then I could take my wife on a vacation.
    Both being on disability we cant afford to do anything after we pay our house hold expenses.

  • rose morgan

    Walmart.

  • OSCAR LOUBRIEL

    I would definitely choose a Jewelery Store, Duh!!!!!! I would choose the biggest diamond rings and all the 24 kart gold rings and necklaces, Role watches and Platinum jewelery. Hahahahaha. Then I would sell it all and pay off my student loans, hahahahahahahaha..

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/68ec06144328fe80dff69ff074da9fa36f57a07062355a8d963a8cb4b71708c6.jpg

    • coast2coast2

      Sounds like a plan I need!

  • Diane Lane

    If I had a 5 minute shopping spree it should be somewhere that is no chance I would able to afford anything in the store. I would go down to the Ferrari dealership and get a cherry red car just like the one in Magnum, PI., and if Tom Selleck came with the car I wouldn’t complain.

  • Marina Adderley

    The Apple Store… in those five minutes you can get thousands of dollars worth of merchandise with a pretty good resell value. Then I’d use the money to buy necessities on my own time with no rush

  • Charlotte Dixon

    I would choose Best Buy I can finally get the Mac Book also my family will have the opportunity to own an IPhone. I can also sell some of the items and get the cash to help pay bills

  • John Hunt

    Walmart for food and clothes

  • Stannyboyc

    A grocery store for sure and stock up on our favorite jarred pasta sauce and other dry goods and maybe some steaks and other meat items too.

  • Foley Christopher

    My choice for a five-minute shopping spree would definitely be at Sam’s Club, because bulk items are always better. 😉

  • Stacie Snow

    WalMart!’ Because you could groceries, households, personal care just about everything!

  • Sara DuVall

    Apple!
    I really need a new laptop and printer!

  • kandeels

    Definitely a grocery store and then I’d have some “extra” cash for more fun purchases!!!

  • haures

    i would go to Wal-Mart any buy all i my family need

  • Manwinder Kaur

    I would like to shop HOME ESSENTIALS !!

  • A Volstorf

    Produce, produce and more produce, lol!

  • I would definitely want the shopping spree to be at The Disney Store so I could snag a ton of Disney gift cards to pay for a future trip to WDW for my family & i

  • Judy Burba McGarvey

    I’d go to Jared’s and load up on gold, platinum, diamonds and gems! Sure would make some nice birthday and Christmas gifts.

  • Denise N.

    I would love to win a five minute shopping spree at my local dollar store! I know the layout of he store and I know in advance exactly what I’d swoop into the cart-laundry, bathroom tissue, and pet aisle! And the soda aisle if I had a minute left!

  • Ken Grant

    Target … large variety with electronics, clothes, food, etc.

  • Marce McHone

    A money store if it can be an imaginary store, id stuff all i could in that 5 minutes 🙂 <3! A real store, id choose Coach, and grab as many goodies as i could!! 🙂 <3

  • Dani Toma

    id go to walmart

  • Barbe Parke

    I would choose organics aroma. I use essential oils everyday and i would like a new diffuser.

  • Fabienne Sawyer

    Babies R Us, I am a mom who works at sonic, my baby boy is 5 months old and keeps outgrowing his clothes. I am also expecting again, so I need another crib and mattress and other things for the next one. I honestly can’t wait, the next 8 months are going to be exciting.

  • Jason Pike

    i would chose a electronic store and get all the high dollar stuff and upgrade everything.

  • John Morgan

    I’d go to the local Toys R Us and walk out with as many toys as I could possibly carry. Then I’d bring the toys to the Santa’s Anonymous donation box so that some kid could have a better Christmas that they might normally have.

  • Michaele Dalin Goodson

    Any cooking store, or wait a fishing store! Either one I would go crazy LOL

  • Jaime Marie Stephens

    I would pick a travel agency. You can choose a other of destinations in 5 minutes!

  • Leah Underwood

    Sams Club….they have great meat, electronics, and food!

  • Leslie Anne Soloman

    I would choose an appliance store cause I need a new refrigerator, a washer and dryer and I can pick them out in five minutes because I already know what I want.

  • Deb

    I would choose Tiffany’s. Diamonds are a girls best friend. Plus, gold is pretty friendly, too.

  • Veralee Poulin

    I would choose a jewelry store and pick out alot of original pieces…Diamonds are a girls best friend after all…

  • Adrienne White

    I would try to purchase all the Christmas gifts possible for my “adopted” family members and friends.

  • Rusty Carper

    If I had a 5 minute shopping spree in any store. I would have to choose Giant Eagle. The reason why I would choose Giant Eagle is because I would be going for the high quality top grade steaks like porterhouse and New York strip steaks. Also I would grab other meats like hamburger and breakfast sausage links and bacon. I would just grab as many different meats as I can!!

  • Anne B

    I’d hit a case lot store, or someplace like that.
    I’d find out what the food banks want the most, and do my darn best to gather as much as I could and top it off with roasts and turkeys, and the like. I have enough, not like I need anything.

  • MT

    Sam’s Club. I don’t know what I’d get, but I’d get a lot of it!

  • Lina Toma

    Does a restaurant count as a store ? I hope it does cause I would literally take everything in literally any restaurant !

  • Richard Vargas

    I would go crazy, if I had a five minute shopping spree in Hermes. I’m assuming it’s a free shopping spree. I would auction my loot, and buy a house. I’d probably have enough left over for a car too.

  • Eric Madore

    I will choose any electronic store than i know very well, a store where i can find rapidly what i want. Because 5 minutes, it’s quick to pick all the things that you want.

  • Jason Provo

    I was gonna say the LCBO but that might incite some sort of intervention from my Vindale community friends, so…..I guess I’ll say…um, maybe….a shopping spree would be fun in……the LCBO!
    I would back a U-Haul up to the door and load up on the vintage-est wines from every region known to man. The finest spirits and the craftiest beers! And when the LCBO go on strike soon, who’s holding all the marbles then, hm? Hm??

  • Azra Rehman

    I would choose Hudson bay, they have all branded things, which I always wish to buy.

  • Sowmya

    Just 5 minutes is cruel. I am still old fashioned and little things make me happy…. so I would go to a yarn shop and quickly choose cotton wool yarn
    in subtle and neutral colours for my crochet work. Currently I am making placemats and matching coasters in different shapes and designs for my new home which we haven’t bought yet but seriously looking around. 🙂 https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/9fd9d242391dcd3e2124975a5e28fe4e3c7e502d9c3e8dadafeeb64082e39b91.jpg

  • Justin Drill

    Any liquor store that had loaded pallets with Cartons of beer and Premix spirits. I would trolley as many out as I could in 5 minutes. Even if it was only one pallet it would be sufficient for a while.

  • Marie Tungren

    I would choose a nice, small store with high end electronics. The smaller the better, since it would be easy to clean out a lot of inventory in five minutes.

  • Rebecca lee

    I would go to ,Harrods in london. I would start in the fashion department and grab myself a couple of pairs of Louboutin shoes, then on to the handbags for a couple of Hermes. A quick stop at the jewellery department for some Tiffany bracelets and then on to the food hall for the $1000 bottles of champagne. I think given 5 minutes in Harrods I could probably break Usain Bolts record for speed!!

  • liz11364

    I would chose Amazon for their variety of products.

  • Kari McDowell

    I’d go to the BMW dealer, I’m sure I could pick out the perfect car and it wouldn’t take me 5 minutes.

  • Theresa Rogers

    amazon

  • Carol Miller

    I would choose Brighton Jewelry. Each piece of their jewelry reflects a design by one of their many artists. I love the old world charm of their pieces. You can rest assured you will never see your bracelet, earrings or necklace on anyone else. Also, the company gives over $10, 000,000. to charity every year. These charities include: Breast cancer, Shoes for poor people in disadvantaged countries, to music programs in underprivileged schools. So, my conscience is eased by the amount their jewelry costs because I know that part of it is going to worthy causes

  • Brittany Nicole

    I would probably do a Walmart shopping spree. They have many different choices to choose from.

  • Qetusi

    I would choose book story. It’s really relaxed me. When I’m in the book story I want to buy everything. I’m learning English, so I will buy good vocabulary.

  • Regina Johnson

    1would choose a shoe store….I loveeeee all kinds of shoes….I would have to build a house just for my shoes

  • valerie

    Sleep country. Although years ago I bought a good bed, the time has come to replace as each night I fall into the crater

  • Ross Goers

    New video game system for my wife, she loves video games

  • Lori Yateman

    clothing store for summer clothes

  • Mohammed Anwar Khan

    I will buy a 6inches smart phone

  • Sherry Amerson

    Tractor Supply of course would be the only logical place form me to have a 5 minute shopping spree – well maybe Harbor Freight – my husband says they are like my jewelry store – just a farm girl – lol

  • Lisa Boone

    Give me 5 minutes in an APPLE Retail Store–a new iPhone, a new MacBook Pro, an Apple Watch and a new iPad Pro would be the first things I would pick up. If I had any extra time left I’d throw in Apple TV, some iTunes Cards.

  • Sarah Mae Bongolan

    I’d be in Wal-Mart! The most important things are there. Food, Clothes, Chocolates❤, and Medicines! And in addition to that, all my basic needs will be covered in my 5 minute shopping.

  • Anna Nicole

    Coach. Their bags are fabulous & last forever! And they have shoes & other accessories, too.

  • At first thought was a car dealership. then my oh so loving hubby told me no because of taxes. So second would be furniture or best buy. Both would be quick to shop to get the most out of the spree. My hubby loves his electronics and I love getting new furniture and we definitely could use new furniture. We have a bed on the floor and lumpy make shift couch that could easily use a make over!!

  • LIVEWIRE

    I will choose PC Richards because I will be able to get TVs game systems for my son and little brothers and I will be able to get a refrigerator stove washing machine whatever I would need for the house

  • luv2shop99

    I would like 5minutes in a jewelry store. Lightweight, easy to grab and expensive.

  • Leslie Zachanowich

    Home depot! So I could renovate my home!!!!

  • MyKinKStar

    I’m thinking Publix grocery store because they are clean and laid out well, so dashing in and around would be easy!

  • 77giggles

    Definitely Target! They have the best household/houseware dept!! Love that they have a great assortment of colors and patterns!

  • Stephen Tobin

    I would have to say Walmart/Target they both have just about anything from babies to adults and anything id get would certainly make great gifts in these times when money is so tight

  • Candy Skalberg

    I would choose Bass Pro!

  • master61

    Wal-Mart because I have order online.

  • Jaclyn Nelson

    Costco.

  • Allen Quinn

    I would buy something nice for my Mom and Dad. They’ve been really good to me lately and I’d love to be able to surprise them.

  • Jacqueline

    Shoe store definitely! probably Aldo…i know my size and i just head straight for every pair i could grab. My three shoe racks of shoes just isn’t enough yet 🙂

  • Mabel Sandi

    I would choose Costco to buy kitchen items as I need it badly. To start doing some baking lessons

  • Sarah

    Woolworths – I’d feed my family for as long as possible with what i could get in a five min shop (and i know the layout so could get far!) That would definitely be my priority, as it’s not always a guarantee in day-to-day life.

  • Bethany Crosby

    If I could win a 5 minutes shipping spree. It would b Petland Discount. Y? BCUZ I have 8 cats n a dog I would get all the blue buffalo n Purina products I. Could put in the cart pet food is expensive. The food that has no additives preservatives or artificial colorings.

  • John Keener

    Office Depot. In 5 minutes I could grab things worth thousands. Would not take long at all. I know exactly what I would grab.

  • Barbara L Rigney

    ReMax – buy some houses!

  • Nina Billups

    Since all my appliances are old and none are working very well and need to be replaced very soon (the washing machine right now!!) I would choose an appliance store

  • Pam Mason

    Grocery store – I could pick up something for everyone, items would be appreciated and used; cooking is so much fun

    • coast2coast2

      What a great idea! I didn’t even think of that… Very smart!

  • coast2coast2

    Since I have recently had my ankle fused and my other ankle has the same condition and is next, 5 minutes is no longer enough time for me to even get to the merchandise at Target, Ikea, Nordstrom, etc. I can’t run or even walk briskly! LOL… So I would LOVE to go to Sephora and indulge in luxurious skin and hair care products, cosmetics, and my favorite perfume!!! I’d be happy with just about whatever I could get to there, to be honest!

  • Stephanie Sage

    I’d shop at Cash and Carry. It’s a restaurant supply store but they have everything I need to make my kitchen awesome! New pots and pans, food storage items, bulk packs of meats, cheese, and food… It would be a lot of work storing everything afterwards, but so worth it! I could feed my family for months.

  • Kristie Bowen

    I would have to say Walmart Supercenter because it has everything that I need. A big bonus is that if it is only a 5 minute shopping spree I know the layout very well so I could get in and get the things I want/need and get out through the new self checkouts that were installed with in the 5 minute time period. I would say I would probably end up shopping the isles when you first walk in the door that are around pharmacy because they are usually less crowded which would give me more time to get more items and get out. Some of the items I would get would be Vitamins and otc medications, Shampoo, Body wash, deo, razors, toothpaste, makeup, probably some mirrors or curtains because they are right there also and by then it would be close to time

  • DM

    Would have to say jewelry store. Diamonds. 🙂

  • Lucie Barr

    I would choose Target and run straight back to the electronics section for all the video games!!

  • Mark Hall

    I figure if it’s a trolley dash then Tiffany’s would be good.

  • Robert Routley

    Where’s the cat food and kitty litter

  • Daniel Cornett

    I would like to get anything from Walmart.

  • Natania

    My shopping spree would be at American Girl Doll. My daughter (Kayla) absolutely loves this store, the only problem is, it’s very expensive. You can get dolls that look like your daughter, matching outfits, so many different sets, it’s crazy. It all looks so real, it’s just miniature. I think they have really neat stuff! Also if your daughter has any kind of disability, they will make a doll to be just like her. They are a great company. I got Kayla a look alike doll with the ears pierced and it was $115.00. She absolutely loves it, She wanted the ice cream parlor, I got her that for Christmas one year, and it was $300.00, crazy! I try to get her at least one thing for each holiday from there. If you haven’t heard of this store before, you need to check it out. You will be amazed at how neat everything is, and if you have a baby girl, I can probably bet when she gets a few years older, she will want a look alike doll, and the fun begins.

  • Christina Rao

    I’d run very quickly thru Burlington Coat Factory and get as many coats, blankets or anything our homeless veterans that live under the bridge need come winter time.

  • Diana Muir

    I would choose Sobey’s meat department. I love their Sterling Silver products.

  • James Ogle

    I would have to say either The Car Store, Best Buy or a Medical Marijuana Dispensary…

  • Paula

    If I won a 5 minute shopping spree in any store, I would choose Tiffany’s, especially, the jewelry department. I would obtain a wedding ring set for my 30th wedding anniversary.

  • Scott Wilhelm

    Tactical Store because I would like to keep a lot of my Army equipment but have to turn a lot of it in so a tactical store would great a lot of our equipment is expensive #USARMY the best

  • Scott Wilhelm
  • Ray Ayala

    I would go to the Golf Pro Shop in St. Andrews, Scotland. This iconic golf course has 5 official stores, so I would pick the one that currently happens to be the best well stocked. Then I would get me four new golf bags and clubs for all my golf partners, souvenirs, apparel, and as many golf balls as I could carry. Now, I am ready for retirement whenever that day comes. That is how I plan for retirement!

  • Emily

    Honestly with only 5 mins, I would go to any store that sold gift cards, grab as many different (stores, restaurants, cash) ones as I possibly could and then have free range in the stores that I now had cards to. 🙂

  • Debashree Mondal

    Oh hope this is true some day!! I would like to choose a good book store with huge collection of great novels and masterpiece like Epic Books or Book Nook so that so that I can grab all of them and nothing will make me happier 🙂

  • Asheley Ortega

    If i won a 5-min shopping spree in any store i would choose Clothes from justice!!

  • Bryan Williams

    I’d choose Best Buy http://tryvindale.com/VzmcMlpj

  • courtney jamieson

    Target!
