Its a cool store for kids working a part time job and wanting new clothes. Lets face it, most of our kids work 15 hours a week and bring home almost nothing. My daughter can purchase a new outfit for school picture day for next to nothing.Glad to see them staying!!

And also the t-shirts, golf shirts, shorts, jackets are great for those of us over 21--especially at the prices they charge there.

The clothes are dirt cheap, but they don't hold up too long. I don't mind buying t-shirts and maybe a pair of shorts there, but I wouldn't bother with shoes or khakis. Different story for people with kids though. Kids probably outgrow the stuff too quick to realize.
really right

Shoes is actually their major weakness--if you don't want the Starbury stuff, you are pretty much out of luck regarding shoes. However, before the days of Starbury, their dress shoes lasted quite awhile.

Actually, at the prices they charge for pants, even if they last a bit less than those at Kohl's, you're still ahead.

Your right-not much shoe choices but rest of their clothes are good, the Belden store is nice and Chap. Hill isn't bad either, glad they kept those two open.
