Based on what I've seen, I often wonder if Galleria shoppers and staff love abuse. They seem to live by the creed ""T'is better to GIVE than to receive."" On more visits than not, I've seen fur coats with unattainable expectations loudly and publicly lord over the retail staff regarding worthy issues like luke-warm lattes. The staff will often follow suit in its responses to ""regular"" folks. I suppose when you cater to those with rediculous amounts of disposable income, it's one of the necessary evils. Believe it or not, you can find a great number of Galleria's ""specialty"" items, ie: wicker baskets, vases, even art, at TJ Maxx and similar retailers - and it is the EXACT SAME - name brand and everything. Guess which place gets you the better value?
Pros: (Somewhat) Unique, Sociology Studies, $1K Coat Watching
Cons: The Clientelle, Over-priced, Impractical, Stuffy
