I love Loft as a chain. Do not get me wrong. Cute sweaters, dresses, accessories. I shop there on and off when I can and when I can fit the outfits. I am a 14, so some things do not look good on me. Anyway, the people who work there act as if they stepped out of Downton Abbey. Give me a break! You work in retail. Therefore you cannot be a snob. When you try to, you embarrass yourself and everyone around you.
I have always been pissed when I shop places and people act as if waiting on customers is such an effort. I have worked in retail and I was kind to people. I wanted the store to do well because I cared and I wanted to keep my job. Do people just not care anymore? Is Loft doing so well that they do not need us, we should need them?
I am sure if I wrote to corporate they would not be happy. Maybe I will. I had to do the same thing at a Lucy store. I do not expect the Nordstrom treatment of personal shoppers and bottled water, but treat people with respect when they come and shop and are in effect keeping people in their jobs.
Take a peek around there. Tell me what you think. This blog is not written from a snapshot shopping experience. I go out to Fairfax Corner several times per month and have been in Loft perhaps15 times or more. Maybe this blog will get back to them and they will fire the sorority sisters and hire real women that need to work and care about what they are doing and how they are treating others…
