Thanks. Do you make personal visits to these stores? I was going to ask the SA if he's met or seen you come through the store just as a conversation point. I wonder if I dropped your name if he would have re-thought the lame reason he didn't give me the hanger. Now I'm annoyed he was dishonest with me, and I made it a point to give him the sale.
I was in the Chicago Bloomies and bought a sportcoat. The sales associate went and got a cheap-ass plastic hanger to replace it with. I asked if I could keep the Eidos one and he explained that he doesn't get new hangers when the next season merch comes in so he needs to save the hangers. Seemed like a suspect response, but plausible, so I didn't try to argue.
