Wow alot of jobs being lost in West Chester these last couple of weeks. Liz Claiborne announced to their employees last Thursday that will losing their jobs after almost 10 years. The economy didn't help , but quite a few bonehead decisions were made by corporate that put the final nail in the coffin.

You are so right about the management. Liz Claiborne wanted to reach out to the middle class working woman. After she stopped managing the day to day running of the corp, it started going downhill. The corporate held onto the high end brands which was not wise in the present day economy. The West Chester DC through the years put in management that only worried about the numbers and how to achieve them, not about the quality or accuracy of their work.

Yes it amazes me how McComb the CEO made so many bad decisions ( i.e. Selling the Liz brand name to JC Penny)that he keeps his job. However the little guy at the DC is dumped out in the steet. There has been talk of a possible 3rd party taking over the lease since it is fully automated. I feel that these are wishful thinkings by some of the employees.

Years ago, LC had the Liz&Co with JCP. LC ignored the threats from Macy's to pull the line from the stores. Macy's stating that by having a name so close to their high end Liz Claiborne line demeaned the higher quality. LC called bluff so theL iz Claiborne line was eliminated from their stores. Another nail in the coffin (as you would say).

Don't believe corporate when they stated that it will be all over in June 2012. Look more into Dec 2011. Remember retail gets very slow after Christmas at Liz Claiborne.
