I work at Abercombie, for you that don't know, Hollister and Abercombie are by the same company. Yes, it's dark and loud! Lol and we get a lot of complaints from the elderly. It's to bad we can't do anything about it. I wish we could help and make it a better experience for our customers, it makes me feel bad sometimes.
I don't see why the downvotes for #75. Once could have been unintentional but if she's working there, she should at least know how to spell it correctly. I've worked there in the past and elder customers used to ask us to turn the music down or to stop making our stores smell so horrible but as an employee I was miserable as well, listening to the same CD on repeat for an entire "season." I did love the smell though so that never really bothered me. Whenever I was assigned to "spritz" the clothes, I'd spritz some on my work clothes as well. Always got compliments on it even though I'm a girl and its supposed to be a man's cologne. I don't regret working there but I am glad I found a better job and got out.
@ #65: You could turn down the music and turn up the lights... It's within your power. Trust me. I used to work retail. Management tends to back off if you all band together and make changes for the sake of your mental health. Not to mention that loud music and a dark environment will destroy your hearing and sight, respectively.
Maybe someday the mannequins will take over stores... And your gramma wouldn't seem so crazy. Right? Wrong.
Hahaha, I like these comments. "Oh cool, no first comment yet. Okay, I gotta be quick. What should I write? Ugggghhhhhh!!! Time is running out! Uhh I can't think of anything. I better just type in 'That's a bit awkward' *enter*. Did I get first comment? No? Damn." And I really really say this a lot more than I should have to, but THERE'S LITERALLY A BUTTON FOR THAT. You don't have to submit pointless comments, you can just press FYL and be done with it.
That reminds me of my mom. She works in retail and is always accidentally greeting the mannequins or asking them if they need assistance.
Older people get confused sometimes, I hope your Gran is just confused and she doesn't have a serious illness like Alzheimer's...
