No sizzle no style no interest in shopping where the merchandise is old looking with nothing and not comfortable. Guys you better look for a new direction or it isnt going to work. Companies with money and style today arent even working in this economy. Look at Chicos it doesnt even rank among cool to shop at anymore. Look At. Sycamore Partners you didnt do your homework just like the rest of the players in your business. Name them like JC Penney Pershing Sq. Yahoo new CEO Good Luck I know this business from years with major Wall Street companies and working with the banks to get them out of the mess. S Levine
