…at’s one reason why, when I went to the mall the other day, about a third of the stores were empty. They all closed within the past six months to a year. This was a mall right in the middle of a major US city.
I bet you are right. They’ve been busy trying to target their brand to the ideal, they failed to realize most people are not going to fall within the instore stocked size range of 00–6. I used to shop at EB. They started not carrying anything over a 10 in jeans at my local store because they claimed it was due to limited space. Yeah, but you have 19 pairs of 6’s, whatever. When I asked about something befitting my size, because, silly me, I’d like to try them on before I buy, the clerk suggested I go online and order them there. “You can always return them.” No duh. But I don’t want to have to order 3 different sizes online and have to return two of them to see what fits. Clothing makers don’t adhere to a universal metric of size. A size 10 could be too big, too small, or just right. I’ve worn anything from an 8 to a 16 depending on who makes it. Ridiculous.
