Brick&Mortar - Favorite chain?
Many of us talk about the local independent stores that we love but the reality is (I confess) there are chains I count on, too. We are preparing for a move (not imminent) and one of the things I've been doing lately is checking to see if my favorite chains are in the area - like Home Goods, TJMaxx & Marshalls - yes! I just looked for The Container Store and DSW and, major sob!, neither is close by :(
I don't shop Target all the time but it is on my outer ring of chains I shop. WalMart isn't even on my radar though part of that is because there isn't one within at least 12 miles, but I don't consider it a great loss and won't likely shop there with a move either. Pottery Barn - eh - never go there and the catalog/internet is more convenient if I do want something. Used to love Marshall Fields, never bother with Macy's. Kohl's is nice for certain things, love Nordstrom Rack (another I have to give up),
What are your favorite Brick& Mortar chains, department, specialty, or otherwise? Maybe your favorites will help expand my options!
