No We Don't Colin (need a bigger mall)

Diamonds at shopping malls just aren't selling. Could it be more on-line jewelry stores are taking a bite out of bricks and mortar stores who have to charge huge mark ups to pay for leases?

We just were in Orchard Park today and two things struck me, a. how dated the place is, and b. how depressing it is in there.

I live here and only go three or four times a year, tops, and two are down already, in November. I guess there's Christmas shopping for the other two times.
Our saddest days are when we add up our losses, and losses seem to be our saddest when we lose our best. Proud to be a "Leaf-licker" and I know who else is too. **smiles**

^^^^^

Ok, I will bite first, QK

You were shopping for diamonds, presumably for KAT chokers, and they are just not selling? Why on earth didn't you just put in a low-ball bid?

KATZ happy and looking good and you save $$$$

:biggrin:

She can only afford diamonds in their natural pre-pressure state...coal. :biggrin:

You should consider doing the Christmas shopping downtown. You get fresh air, friendlier people, and a great variety of locally-owned shops. I'll take that over torture park anyday.

Alas, the debate is "do we need a bigger mall" and from whatever it was that I described the answer is "no." What we need is better merchandise. The drek I saw was unbelievable and I can't believe it's selling.
