Maybe they come to accept that, but assuming that nothing is going to move until sales is a big ass red flag in the business plan, unless margins have been set that high. Also, some collections just don't go on general sale - CCP and MA+, for example.  So, celebrities are very possibly keeping your favorite stores afloat.  Thank Kanye and Kim Kardashian.
Yes, both are safe bets.  Also, they are not out of place.  They allow someone to fill out their wardrobe with basics that highlight their marquee pieces.  Also, they allow entry into the dream.  Remember that the store is a brand. Blue in Green is the official agent of Real McCoy's in the USA - so that mystery is now solved.

 Very nice. Can we get a $675 up in this place?

Fixed.  Thanks.  That's what I get for rushing it. Cheers, Fok.

Nephew, I suggest some Aldens. No, for real.  Or more in line with your style, some Buttero sidezips, which are not C. Diems, but they are solid and look good.
