    Pros

    I have loved my store, co-workers and boss. I had really intended to make this job my home for a long time, but corporate had a lot of issues and tried to make too many changes. Now, we are going out of business and I blame the people at the top. The product is amazing and so many people are sad that they won't be able to shop here anymore. It's just the reality of brick and mortar these days.

    Cons

    Big wigs made bad choices and now everyone suffers.

    Pros

    Great people. Wonderful customers, that loved this brand. Beautiful product to work with.

    Home office worked hard to support the stores, but are out of touch with what it takes to execute their constantly changing plans. Allocation just cant get replenishment right. Promotions never loaded correctly leaving stores to contantly have to manually over ride every item.

    Unfortunately, in my opinion, Corporate can't seem to get their act together.
