      •  I wondered if the "North Place" (0+ / 0-)

        listed twice in your update, was actually North Face. I see it is.

        Basically, this means I can't shop locally. All of the anchor stores and a few of the smaller ones listed are the only stores, besides Lane Bryant, that I can shop at in the only mall that will keep some of my sales tax money local. Our state has no income tax and my county needs those sales tax dollars. Then there's Nordstrom, which has done a great deal over the years to benefit the Pacfic Northwest. If I need something nice that will fit me and make my fat body look good, that's where I go. A woman my size doesn't have a heck of a lot of choices for something attractive. I've found a couple of those choices, but the first time I wore something I thought nice from one, to the Governor's reception, I was asked sneeringly if I got it where I did get it, and the second time, with a different dress, five different people asked me with a bit of contempt if it was home-made.

        What do I do? Stay home? Endure the belittlement and the snickers behind my back? Or shop at prohibited stores?

        •  I hold my nose, buy what I need, and push change (0+ / 0-)

          Many folk who either don't live in retail-choice-blessed areas or must make do on little income have to make similar choices. When I have to get something, and my only options involve retailers I would really prefer not to support, I hold my nose, get what I need at either the lowest price or the least ethical trauma, and then make sure to work extra hard on the relevant issue to atone.

          And may I say that anyone who would comment even by innuendo or expression on the perceived quality or source of another person's clothing at a major event is undeserving even of contempt. I trust the cold look you gave the cretins left them frostbitten.
