I’ve recently been on a few shopping binges — because nothing says “I’m unemployed!” like being in a suburban mall at 11am. Here’s my suggestion for all stores:
Say I want to buy a dress. I can go to Store A that sells off-beat dresses, Store B which sells classic dresses, Store C which sells beautiful but expensive dresses etc. Same thing for shoes. Each time I have to go into the store, say hello to the clerk, look through the dresses… If I buy one and find a nicer/better one later I have to return the first dress or vice versa. Oi — it’s exhausting!
However. When I go to Winners, I go to the dress section and it’s like “Ok, ok, ok, ugly, too long, too punky, too slutty, ok, too pricey, ok” and then I go to the changing room and try on my varied selection of dresses that were found in one convenient location.
Department stores, while slightly better than the horrible, horrible torture that is individual boutiques at the mall, are still atrocious. Clothes in department stores are still separated by designer; not size or colour, making my search less efficient than if all the clothes were grouped according to the logical order of life.
BONUS! Store will make more money because, if I want a blue dress, I’m going to look at all of the blue dresses. If I fall in love with one that is $100, Iwill buy it.
