Yep. And South Central Pennsylvanians will add it to the list ... Prime Outlets, Hagerstown WalMart Plaza -- Dress Barn, etc.-- the rest of Valley Mall, etc., that they drive to in order to purchase clothing and pay Maryland's 6% tax on clothes without giving it a second thought ... while continuing to wonder why Pennsylvania schools have no money and complain that property taxes go up. What a stupid, stupid state we are!

It would be nice if Men's Wearhouse came to Chambersburg Mall but then again it would be nice if we had a Garfields Restaurant and pub or a Damons or any other food chain at our mall. Hell, it'd be nice to have STORES at Chambersburg Mall. ******

world inspector, I missed something in your logic. Isn't it possible that Hagerstown is simply closer for folks in South Central PA and hence they save money on gas by going there instead of driving to Mechanicsburg/Harrisburg for similar type stores? The Chambersburg Mall offers little to no competition to the places you mentioned.

And as for paying tax on clothing purchases, how would that help in PA? We don't pay tax on most clothes, so shopping here doesn't put any money into PA schools. Maybe the "stupid, stupid state we are" is a reflection of a state government too dumb simply add a small clothing tax.

That's nice. Construction workers and assembly line workers don't tend to need an extensive wardrobe of the items Men's Wearhouse sells. Can we interpret this to mean that more jobs where that kind of clothing is needed are coming to this area?

Did you know construction workers and assembly line workers actually wear clothes to places other than to work?

While it would be nice to interpret that as meaning more "white collar" jobs are coming to the area, I also interpret it as meaning the folks at Men's Warehouse have noticed and are responding to an area need for a more varied selection in men's clothing.

Not everyone lives and dies in WallyWorldWardrobes.

Men's Warehouse carries very nice men's clothing, although an experienced buyer will agree that's it's not exactly "high end" clothing. Quality clothing never goes out of style, however it shouldn't cost an arm and a leg just to be outfitted in "dress" clothes.

Welcome to area, jobs and varied merchandise is always welcome!

Of course I know that. But how many suits and ties can a construction worker or assembly line worker have in their closet when a suit begins at $200 and a good tie easily costs $60? I am also aware that many in Hagerstown drive to DC and Baltimore to work, so they will frequent the store. So, if every construction worker and assembly line worker buys 2 suits, shirts and ties a year, that might be $700 a year per male. I just don't see that store being a long-term fixture in the community.
