1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I think I know which store you're at. :)

    Glad to hear there's still hope for us TC thrifters. Been so dry here lately.


    Most every time I skip grabbing a cart, I end up needing one. Whenever I grab a cart, I usually end up buying one item. :plain:

    I never start with a cart. I only will grab one after my arms hurt. If I start with a cart, I find next to nothing.

    I always grab a cart so I can fill first, check later.

    Tomorrow, I am hitting a brand spanking new store 2 hours from here, then 3 "new to me" stores before returning to my 14 regularly scheduled stores mapped out for the day. Shall be exhaustingly fun.

    Why do I all of a sudden get the feeling that I'm about to watch Zoolander Part 2?

    I literally LOL'd at that reference. Good thing I wasn't drinking anything or the person across from me would be drenched.

    Brian always gets at me for that, he wants to share a cart. Ha. No. miiiine.

    I'm thinking a few people got theirs based on the increase in NIB PRL Shell shoes popping up on Ebay.

    Suits, Jackets, Ties, Shoes, Shirts, Pants, Outerwear, Luggage, Womens Jeans, Jewelry Case....etc.


    like it's my job

    Stores are open 12 hours. Some quite large, some pretty small. 35 minutes average in store. Average drive time between stores is about 4 minutes. We have almost no traffic here. That leaves 22 minutes for lunch and bathroom breaks. No problem. Flip it like you own it, this ain't no game.

    Jcrew marks up their third party imports like money-mongering capitalists but that is damn fresh. Don't think even self edge and blue in green carry canton.
