Hecht's is a Baltimore institution though they have closed some stores over the years, I think. This one is relatively new. They have a good selection of clothing and housewares and their sales are really good and also frequent. I think they could cut back on their inventory by a third and the store would be easier to get through. It feels claustrophobic sometimes, especially in the men's department which seems darker than the rest of the store. I prefer a more open, spacious shopping experience.
