    Advice to Management

    Although there is a strong message of great customer service sent to the stores from the head office, people who have consistently great customer service seem to be overlooked. Furthermore, in-store emphasis on fitting rooms is low, causing a lot of stolen items.

    I expected more from such a well known and reputable company.
