What is it with SA, anyway? Out of the blue, they started stapling price tags to leather goods a few months back. Of course, no one in the store could do anything about it. I called all the way to SA HQ in Virginia, trying to find someone who would listen and say, gee, you're right: Stapling Aldens is really stupid, especially for us, and so we'll stop doing that. No one to talk to, no calls returned. They stopped stapling shoes not long ago, but belts and anything else made of leather--CER-THUNNNK!--and ruined. I've learned to live with the stapled Stetsons et al--the holes will, eventually, heal themselves, or close enough.
With GW, you can look up their tax returns, find out who's on the board of directors and make a direct pitch--I've done that before when I've had issues, and it's worked. But SA is considered a ministry under the tax code and so nothing is public.
Excuse the rant. Just glad to have stumbled across this thread. Hope to find something worthy of boasting about soon...
