I belive this is the complete list of the non-concession stores in the U.S., the ones that share their computer databases, and can cross-reference your purchases.
Beverly Hills
Costa Mesa
San Francisco
Washington D.C,
Bal Harbour
Palm Beach
Houston
Dallas
New York
Boston
Las Vegas
Chicago
Ala Moana
and I think Waikiki.... That's all!
If "yours" is not on the list...it is independently owned.

Thank you for posting this, Avan!!!

Now I know which stores to stay away from so that my local store won't know if I cheated on them.

Some SA's will of course never bother to look, but these stores have connected databases, so if you are in Chicago, (for example) the can (if they are not lazy), check for a scarf, or belt, or bracelet you may be looking for (probably will not do a bag unless you are very VIP, ) and have it transfered to your local store. But it is only amongst the stores listed above as far as I know.

I have a related question: WHO owns the "franchise" stores?

Hi everyone,

Denver store opening in early 2009, I believe. Is it a franchise?

Thanks, and I love learning from all of you.

Waikiki - yes!
I called them, and they had my info on a screen within a minute.
So I wondered if they put in whatever I purchased from them.
Are purchases entered into the database along with address and phone

Is KOP a franchise? I thought I heard mention of it as a reason that they don't charge tax for out of state shipments.

There is a new store opening up in San Diego in the next few months, and also in the Seattle, WA area - I believe in Bellevue.
