On Friday my husband and I had to deal with our bank and Time Warner cable both of which reside in the Queens Center mall. I thought that I would look for sweat pants. The mall has Lane Bryant and Ashley Stewart and since Time Warner was in the basement I knew both stores wouldn't be far. How wrong I was. Both stores were gone. I knew Lane Bryant was having financial difficulties but to not keep a store in a central location?
There were no fat clothing stores in this mall. Sure there was JC Penney pathetic section and Macys no longer had a Macy's woman in this store but some sporting apparel. Apparently Macys is in the habit now of offering more fat clothes in black neighborhoods. (Don't know how true it is, but when I reviewed Macys for my book, this one had a full Macy's woman).
So I'm done with this mall that doubled its size from when I was younger and now doubling it's offering to size small. I'm done with it. I don't want your table scraps. I want to be treated like a human being who has money to buy clothes. This means I shouldn't have to trek all over to find a pair of freaking sweat pants.
