Why is it when you go to Neiman Marcus, Saks, etc, they have "Salons" for Fendi, Prada, Chanel, etc with all of the inventory proudly displayed, but, when it comes to Balenciaga, they usually have a few representative bags out and if you are looking for something in particular, you have to track down an SA? Do they not realize that this probably reduces sales considerably? I happen to be guilty of impulse buying and don't always go into the store wanting something in particular. Those little displays by the grocery store check out were put there for me, I just know it!!! I have a junk drawer full of pens with travel games attached, magnifying credit cards with flashlights that would come in super handy in a dark restaurants and travel toothbrushes in a zillion fun colors although I rarely travel anywhere and when I do, I almost ALWAYS forget my toothbrush. Anyhow, why the big mystery? Is that a marketing technique? Why not put the SA's in long overcoats thoughout the store with all of the bags under their coats? They could approach you with a "psst, lady, over here". Then they could flash you their goods!!!! LOL! Same with BalNY. If any of you ladies and gents have been there. Whats with the bat cave with what I'm sure is astonomical rent and 5 handbags on display?? I truly think they just love to subject everyone to the notorious "eye roll" when you request to see something from the back room. The thing is, I would like to know what all of my options are before I make the decision to drop 1K plus on a bag. So....I think when we go to NYC in May, I will look for my favorite SA and tell her I would like to see EVERYTHING in the back room . I'll tell her "I will just sit here on this rock while you get them" - "No rush, I have all weekend". Sheesh!!!!
