NWR: Horrible Shopping Experience (Vent)

Hey ladies! As some of you know I recently got a new job. I felt that my wardrobe was lacking a bit, so I decided to head to the mall and check out New York & Co. I absolutely love to shop there for business-wear. Also, I get their emails and they were having a really great deal.


Unfortunately, I didn't buy anything. From the moment I walked in til I left I was basically ignored. It totally ruined my shopping experience. No one greeted me, or asked if I needed help while browsing. I stood in front of the fitting room for several minutes before someone pointed to an open door and ran off with no offer to help. I had to restock the things I tried on myself. At that point I was done. I left the store and there wasn't even a "Have a nice day." Nothing.


It was really disheartening. I was planning to spend quite a bit of money, but now I'm at a loss. I guess I'll wait til next weekend and check out some other stores. 


Thanks for listening to me vent ladies!

Sorry you had such a bad experience.  I don't know your area to suggest somewhere else for you to go.  What about shopping online?  Kohls has some nice stuff.  Macy's?  Again, sorry - my work wardrobe consists of jeans and t-shirts so I'm not much help.

Oooo! I forgot about Kohl's! It's on the other side of town, but I always love getting stuff there. I'm usually jeans and T-shirts too, so I need to pump up my wardrobe for my new job. =)

So sorry about that as well. Do you have a J.C. Penny there? Macy's have great suits, skirt sets, and trouse so you can mix and match for a great polished look.

Aww I've never been a fan of going to malls. Because of the lack of customer service some of them have. I love kohls too! Maybe Express pricey but they have awesome coupons sometimes.

I would go back tomorrow and hope that different people are working. Or just ask for help! Me personally, I hateeee when sales people talk to me. So your experience wouldn't have bothered me one bit! I always ask for a fitting room if there isn't an attendant working too. But kohls was a great suggestion! They are so cheap and always have a diverse selection of clothes! Do you have an express? They also have good work clothes :) good luck!

Aww that's awful. I dislike being bombarded but it is nice to at least get a little bit of help. I would recommend Kohls as well.

That sounds like no fun at all; if it were me I wou;d've walked right into a dressing room, left whatever didn't fit in that room, and yelled "HAVE A NICE DAY" when I walked out.

So sorry you experienced this! You may need to try another location. This happened to me when I went wedding dress shopping at David's Bridal. I got no attention, my consultant was nowhere to be found and she measured me for a bra but still gave me the wrong size! I went to a smaller store closer to my job and they were at my beck and call. Nothing like great customer service! Did you go shopping again yet?
