1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

Finally--bg online!!!

    You see, FB, had you acted really fast you would have been able to beat this post even though you missed Banks.

    Its kind of amazing that shills (forgive me if this posted who just signed up now and has 1 post, this one is not a shill) can write but they cant read, or dont bother to tak the time dont you agree?

    I also find it interesting that there wold be a need to 1) mention that on this site if there are no men's clothing available and 2) why would a big company do that at all?

    Because first of all, BG didn't have a web site, period, until not too long ago, and now online shopping. Saks Fifth does have men's clothing for sale online at the moment, but has gone through periods during which it offers no mens clothing online. So why not put BG, a "temple" of men's clothing, on the radar for our future online shopping?

    i'll go out on a limb and say this was a blatant shill. i'm not even going to give him/her the benefit of a doubt.

    i believe it's the same person who announced the spa giveaway a couple days ago, might've been on the 'general chat' forum.

    i wonder if they're actually getting paid to do this. it must be an intern or something. maybe a temp. so dÃ[​IMG]classÃ[​IMG]e for a store like goodberg dorfman.

    I know i may be new, but what is a shill?

    Edit- after looking at their online store, it resembles Neiman Marcus's layout. Actually pretty identical.

    BTW, Its no crime to be new. We were all new at some point or another. Its another thing entirely when you come on for one post and scream as to how wonderful it is to shop at somethingorother.com cause its a great place and we dont have to fly into NYC anymore to get it and we can win untold spa visits, etc...

    I think you understand.
