While flying my Archer from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton to Lancaster (PA), I heard this exchange. (Lancaster has a well-known pilot shop located on the field.)
"Lancaster Tower, Cessna 12345 right base for runway 31, three miles out."
"Cessna 12345: Cleared to land, runway 31."
"Cleared to land, runway 31."
"We're heading to the pilot shop."
"I think it would be a good idea to land first."
