It was the weather. It had nothing to do with the prices.

Maybe they shouldn't put Coats out in August??!! I don't know who is buying winter gear in August but I can't stand when I have to buy a swimsuit in January because they take them out of the stores by May. Bring on the Christmas trees!#@$%!

I agree, the last thing I'm looking to buy when there is still snow on the ground is a swimsuit or a winter coat while it is 90 plus degrees outside. It seems the stores change seasons earlier every year???

That store has gone down hill!Its such a dump! There merchandise is way over priced for the quality. I can buy better at Wal-Mart now! I went in the other day (the Galleria)and pulled a shirt of the rack and it was filthy. In fact all of them on the rack were very dirty. They looked like they all had been drug along a dirty shop floor. I told the trashy sales clerk and she looked at me like I was some pain in the butt lady and did nothing. Something tells me that this store wont recover until they make some major changes. I know I wont shopping at the Bon-ton anymore.
