What sort of responses did you expect? You clearly stated that you thought South Charlotte was "two years behind" where fashoin trends are concerned. That's an insult. So, no, you're obviously NOT a nice person, who hasn't been to Charlotte yet.
BTW, why open a business in a place you know nothing about?
well said!

Moderator cut: edited our the referring thread flame you referenced

LovePink, Charlotte is a wonderful place with very accepting, nice people that are happy to be here and willing to welcome others. It's just that sometimes our pride gets in the way when people use the old southern stereotypes on us. We are a very modern and progressive city.

What I dont get about the Charlotte Forum is- WHY DOES EVERYONE COMPARE CHARLOTTE TO OTHER CITYS???? It makes no sense to me. Every city and town in America is DIFFERENT!!!!

When is everyone going to realize that?

I want to emphatically state that it is my sincere heart's desire to see Charlotte growing, expanding and always welcoming to newcomers. As many of you are aware, I have a real commitment to blending us all together into the New South. I want to see newcomers happy here . . . and making a smooth transition to the South and to Charlotte in particular. But I also want stereotypes dispelled and my Southern heritage to be respected by those who come here. Come w/ an attitude and it ain't gonna work - for any of us.

Now, excuse me, while I go back inside and mix up a big ole batch of sweetened Ice Tea and try to calm myself down - I am positively all a'flutter.

Her store sounds like it would be more at home on Central Avenue in Charlotte.

Perhaps we should provide a map? And demographics?

Thank God that I'm not a slave to fashion.

I have a three yr old and spend quite a bit on her clothes and would say that the type you refer to would not do well here. I probably wouldn't buy that for my daughter and I tend to buy trendy clothes for her.
