Nothing from Walmart, K-mart, Sears, no marts at all
Shop, Lord & Taylor for wife while in Fla, like jeans in Bugle Boy, macy's is cool. Any place that carries USA made clothing.

I don't shop at Walmart, I am not a fan of their business practices, not to mention the quality of their clothes isn't quite what I like.

Every once in a while I look in JC Penney but everything I find there is either too juniors or too old lady-frumpy looking. They are lacking a happy medium.

I used to like the Gap for jeans but have found ones that fit much better. Everytime I go in there it is so denim and khaki that I end up walking out empty handed every time.

I do not care for Kohls, Marshalls, Target or Walmart. I like Chico's, Coldwater Creek and some online organic clothing lines, like DEVA Lifewear etc. Oh, B' Gauze is great.

All the Marts, pretty much suck around here. Not to mention the sizes are not true-to-size.
And the quality at Mart stores are lacking.

Target is the worst for me, followed by Kohl's. Wal-mart, I won't even go in based on moral grounds. I prefer quality clothing at discount prices..I love TJMAxx and Marshall's for that. I used to buy a lot for my daughter at Abercrombie, Holllister and American Eagle. I am thankful now that she works and buys most of her own clothing. It's funny now that it's HER money I see her coming in with Mandees and Joyce Leslie bags.

Abercrombie (When I was a freshman in high school it was all I would wear and I don't know what I was thinking! It's over priced for something that's really not all that cute)
I don't wear anything from Abercrombie, Victoria's Secret, Hollister, Walmart, or Carsons. They all then to be either too much much or not great quality of clothes. ALso, I don't like the imagine some of these stores are convincing girls to display.

I agree with the -marts. I've never found anything interesting in there. The clothing quality is cheap and much of it is shapeless. I have gone in there for workout clothes and they do a great job with that. I would disagree that Macy's is expensive- that's what the clearance rack is for! The clothes that I buy there is cheaper than what I can find in TJ Maxx, Marshalls or Ross. I shop with a strategy so I guess it does take some work to find great deals. We don't have seasons in Florida so it's easy for me to shop out the clearanced summer clothes (because I'll be wearing those year round anyway)!

I buy most of my clothes at Dillard's, but then, I'm not so much into trendy, more classic. You get what you pay for.

Its not a matter of 'refusing' to buy from, but the quality of the clothes is what matters. Walmart/Kmart seem to have the worst all the way around. Yeah, we know, you get what you pay for, lol. But I admit, those big name stores obviously dont need my business either, but quality is an issue....so Savers and amazon.com has yet to disappoint me!
My biggest issue, a lot of times, is finding things in my size, there have been times I've had to buy in the childrens sections.

Old Navy
JC Penny

I cannot fathom how someone would call Nordstrom boring. They have everything from classics to supertrendy designer items.
