The Neiman Marcus Fiasco
OK. So by now everyone knows that the Neiman Marcus/Target coupling was an epic fail.
At least corporate got smart and dumped the ugly ass stuff when it was at 70% off and didn’t go 90%.
Of course if you bought it you can’t return it, but hey at least you can brag you bought your daughter the ugliest bicycle on the planet for $150 instead of $400. (She’d probably be less mortified and teased on a banana seat.)
The question is, how will this multi-million dollar flop hurt employees?
At least where I am they didn’t salvage the stuff by “best practice” (english: throw out). So you will probably see some homeless woman running around in a designer dress and local drunk man in a Navy blazer. LOL.
Thoughts, fears, tales to tell already?
