    All right, if you say so. If you guys don't mind I'd like to be a buyer for men's designer section, it does need revamping.

    i'm quite confident you can...

    i think the buyers should hold sales seminars with the sales staff so they really understand the merchandise and can sell it properly to the customers... :flower:

    When the store was first set up , ( in the 80s , I think ) , didn't the BURSTEINS , owners of London's BROWNS of South Molton Street , run the women's and men's GIORGIO ARMANI department for the Pressmans ?

    How's about myself running a vintage department , with a strong leaning towards 80s and 90s CLAUDE MONTANA pieces ? ;) ;) ;)

    I'd certainly know MY stock inside out !!! :eek: :eek: :eek:

    KIT :blink: :blink: :blink:

    sounds good kit!...you'd certainly be an asset!...we'd be lucky to have someone so knowledgable, witty, and charming...

    as for the bursteins etc...barneys was around long before the 80's...but maybe the armani boutique was set up in the eighties?...that's news to me if it's true...but i do know from my retail experience that armani boutiques were franchises back then so it's very possible... :ermm: :flower:

    so now we need a good vintage buyer...purple lucrezia...can i interest you in the job?!?!... :woot:
