I usually love this store. But I found the last time I went in, they lady at the desk when you first walk into the store was very judgemental about checking my purse. After uncomfortably handing over my purse, I wonder why she's not checking my friends purse who's was the same size as mine. Then I look around at books and cards, and notice 3 people around me with bags bigger than mine on! So my advice is dress nicely... keep your bag, wear cut off jeans and a t-shirt be prepared to hand over the bag. When I expressed concern, she blamed it on different employee standards when following the bag size rule, and said i could lock my purse in the locker. I dont know if I will go back there ever because of this.
