I do not do Wal-mart, Target, Kmart, Ross, TJ Maxx or Sears for clothing.

I am glad you mentioned Burlington. I can never find anything for myself because they have very little in Petites, but their prices are amazing. Their mens wear selection is huge, especailly for athletic wear and some of the young men's urban wear, like EchoUnltd. Machavelli, etc. Definately recommend checking it out, you'll be pleasantly surprised. I know I was.

Wal-Mart, Kmart, Sears, etc. I'm in a career change so my budget is very tight. I would rather shop Macy's clearance rack than any of those stores.

Also, Rainbow and Rave- crappy clothes! Stores like Wet Seal or Forever 21 have trendy clothes but at least they will last a while if taken care of properly.

I refuse to buy clothes at Walmart...

I actually am not sure where to shop any more. I don't feel my style exists in many places or one store. I do mail order a lot of times because very few stores in my area (Metro Detroit) carry Ed Hardy, Lucky 13, etc.

I buy most of my t-shirts at concerts

I buy my jeans at Old Navy and they hold up just fine for many years actually

I agree with not shopping at the marts. The marts are not for clothes shopping. You can get cheap household stuff there though.
I have never been to Walmart. I would never THINK to clothing from there. eww! My husband has bought stuff for my yorkies from there & also some lawn chairs.We have since sworn off from them learning about their horrible business practices.
I also would not buy clothes from JcPenneys or Sears. It is actually a shorter list for me to list who I do tend to buy from. I am a Nieman Marcus Junkie I also like my designer outlets. I also do a lot of shopping online mostly at Nieman Marcus & Saks 5 Ave sale items.

**Gossip Alert**

F.Y.I- Rave went out of business due to uncontrolled amounts of shrinkage...Much of which was done by the employees. They closed several stores across the U.S. for the original intent of re-opening as LOLA. In fact, their website was 'under construction' for the longest time but then the plans fell through and nothing ever came of it. Interesting, huh?

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)
Wow! Sorry that your Wally World is a "dump"...where I live, we have several WW stores and all are kept in very clean condition; employees are very friendly and helpful. As far as buying clothes there...I always buy my jeans at WW, same quality as anywhere else and much lower cost!

I will say in all fairness though, there are tops I've purchased at WW and have been very disappointed in the quality of workmanship and that after a few washings they were in very poor condition.

I like the clothes as JCP mainly because I can get a good fit and find good bargins.

I would never EVER shop at Walmart. Their business practices stink... they scre* their employees and the list goes on. Thanks, but not thanks.

I do buy from some small businesses that sell on-line... items made in the US, by small companies from natural fibers. We used to have a great store near us before we moved with all organic natural fiber clothing, that was my favorite place to shop.
