next store (= next door)

Thanks to Jim Landau for confirming "next store" and adding "the
safternoon".  It reminded me of a phrase my mother used to use, saying
that someone putting on airs was acting like  "Mrs. Astor's poodledog".
I interpreted this mentally as "Mrs. Astrous Poodledog", imagining this
ostentatiously wealthy woman, and only a few years ago, when it came
to mind, I suddenly realized the misanalysis.
