Is it time to break up with my SA?

Before I worked in retail myself in college, I thought SAs were an annoyance to be swatted away like flies. After doing it myself, I realized how helpful they could be. Of course, a good one is hard to find.
This is not Banana Republic with an unlimited supply of merchandise. Quite the reverse ... and since 2008, buying has been tight. Without an SA, you don't have full access to information about what is available, in what sizes, and where. Some designers apparently won't allow their things to be shown on the store's website, and items and sizes in short supply often don't appear either. I often have to get things from other stores, and only an SA can facilitate that process.
If you're tired of shopping and haven't yet accomplished your goal, an SA can bring you things and encourage you to keep at it till you find what you came for.
I could go on ...
