    Run as a ministry not as a business. Basic retail practices were not applied to everyday operation of stores. Stores could have been salvaged with right leadership at top.

    Pros

    Great retailer, however they are closing all brick and mortor retail sites. Very positive work environment, great leadership.

    Cons

    The highest level of leadership knows little about retail and adapting to the changing customer expectations. Therfore, they decided to close all brick and mortor locations instead of adapting.
