    I worked at Fashion Bug for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Everyday that I am out I am stopped by a loyal Fashion Bug customer telling me how much they miss their store and all of us that worked there. We that worked the field made a difference; despite all the pressures put on us by the company. We were the face and smile to the customer; we made the company; and very rarely given due credit; but when I'm told how much we are missed , I know our staff did their very best.

    Cons

    The regret that the wrong thing was done when the chain was closed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More should have been done to save the company.
