Just like so many companies, the company I work for had "workforce reductions" yesterday. The current economic climate has not been kind to retail...in fact, it has been utterly brutal. I feel incredibly lucky to still have my job and my heart goes out to those who have lost theirs. I've worked in retail for many years and most of the people I've worked with genuinely love what they do and want you to have a great experience in their stores. All I ask is that when you are out shopping please be kind to the people working in the stores. Please have patience and understand that they are working hard and are stressed and understaffed. Thank you.
