I have lived in Seattle for 19 years now and travel back to Wichita every 1-3 years to visit family. This trip I stopped in to pick up a few items and although I didn't find the jacket I had hoped would replace my torn leather coat I did have a good experience in shopping. The staff was friendly and I did get help in looking for what I needed. I also found the women at the cosmetic counters here to be much more friendly than the ones I see when I am shopping in Seattle's Macy's or Nordstrom stores.
A few years ago a man in the shoe department had been very helpful in my last minute search for a pair of shoes to go with a bride's maid outfit that I needed for a wedding later that day. I'd held off thinking I'd have time and then had to do this last minute. My shoes got more attention than I'd expected and I ended up loving them and wearing them more than I expected too. Who knew I'd enjoy a silver pair of sandals?
