I really doubt anyone likes being called a servant. Not to blow a P.C. horn here, but that's pretty damn rude.

If those 5 billionaire in SA have any sense of style, they do not buy their clothes or furnishings in SA. They or their servants may buy some things there but I'm sure they would go to the fashion centers to buy things that matter.

Because you are Trae, right? So why are you getting so upset?

There's a big difference from "largest customer base" to "a majority of their customers."

North Star Mall.

It's 7 US billionaires and most are old men so I doubt they care where they get their clothes and furniture from.

Tier 1 - World Cities:
New York
Chicago
Los Angelas

Tier 2 - Large Cities With High Growth Potential:
Boston
San Fran
Philadelphia
Seattle
Houston
Dallas
Atlanta
Phoenix
Washington DC
Miami

Tier 3 Medium-Large Cities (Some with large growth some not):
Detroit
Cleveland
Minneapolis
St. Louis
Portland
Pittsburgh
Baltimore
San Diego
Denver
Tampa

Tier 4 Cities (Mid-Sized Cities):
New Orleans
Kansas City
Jacksonville
Charlotte
Indianapolis
Cincinatti
Columbus
Milwaukee
Richmond
Sacramento
San Antonio
Austin
Nashville

Tier 5 Cities (Smaller Cities):
Omaha
Madison
Oklahoma City
Orlando
Raleigh
Boulder
Memphis

Odd Ball Tier:
Las Vegas? - kind of in its own tier

PLEASE MAKE YOUR OWN TIERS AND CHANGES OR ADD CITIES I DIDN'T MENTION. DONT EXCLUDE CITIES MENTIONED ABOVE THOUGH. ALSO, MOVING YOUR CITY TO A HIGHER TIER JUST FOR THE SAKE OF IT DOESN'T HELP - YOU NEED TO PROVIDE A REASON. IE, MOVING "HOUSTON" TO WORLD CITIES JUST FOR THE SAKE OF IT WITHOUT REASONING

I'd put Vegas in Tier 2 or 3. Move Orlando to Tier 2 and Raleigh to Tier 3. Add to tier 5:

Akron
Dayton
Buffalo
Rochester
St. George, UT
Des Moines
Tallahassee

I think that would be most objective, disregarding personal taste.
I'm not sure this is "most objective."
