Consumer Choice

In a free society as eclectic and ethnically varied as ours, customers expect and demand a range of choices that meet their individual needs and fashion preferences. In our role as retailers, we recognize that it is the consumer who ultimately determines what products will continue to be viable retail offerings. Those decisions are made daily at point of sale by individual consumers and function as a singularly effective barometer for determining what will and will not be sold by retailers in a free and open marketplace. Varied and conflicting viewpoints about what should or should not be sold underscore our belief that factors unrelated to the workings of a free economy are inappropriate determinants of retail offerings.
