high end retail

NYPL 53rd st by Ten Arquitectos

In a neighborhood dense with high-end retail, luxury residences, and blue-chip institutions and offices, this 30,000 square foot branch library will fulfill a much-needed role as a public space and a touchstone for the local community and visiting tourists. Despite the library’s site being predominantly below grade and set at the base of a new 40-story hotel, TEN Arquitectos’ design transforms the dark, subterranean space into an inviting, open and light-filled civic landscape in the heart of Manhattan.

The fact that she was lucky was fortunate for [Y/N]. When she cheated on a test, she didn’t get caught. When she ran red lights, she didn’t get caught. When she rolled dice, she got Yahtzee every time. When she stole expensive things from high-end retailers, the staff practically helped her pocket their merchandise. And she supposed it was some sort-of luck that she ended up in the same department store as a recently escaped convict.

She’d been in the process of casing the building, planning on returning at a later date to commit a felony, when a man strode in her direction. [Y/N] paid him no mind - she didn’t know him, and there was no reason to assume that he knew her, so she figured he’d carry on without much incident. How surprised she was to glance up from her cell phone only to be engulfed by a pair of strong, unfamiliar arms.

Instinctually, she made a move to scream, but her face was entirely smothered by a broad shoulder. Before she could even begin to struggle, the arms held tighter.

There was a hot whisper in her right ear, breath wafting down her neck. “If you don’t play along, it’s gonna mean big trouble for you, toots.”

She felt herself being rocked from side-to-side like he was an affectionate lover and not some malevolent stranger.

“Understand?”

Scammy Customers!!

It’s always so fun to read the stories on here but I never thought I would be the one posting my story. I’m still mad at myself for what just happened.

So I work at a really high end fashion retail store. I work in the Home department which is basically a department that has pillows sheets bedding and Nic nacs. It was closing time and at my store we have to service the last customer before we close. So it was a boring day and I was just waiting for customer service to say Time to close. Just then a woman comes up to me with kids clothes for me to ring up. No red flags yet. So I was about to ring her up but then she goes. “ before you ring me up can I return this first”. It was a cosmetic item in a box. That’s when I started to feel off. In fact this situation felt familiar because I have delt with this customer before. The year before where she also scammed with the same items. At this moment I should of just told her to go upstairs where the cosmetics department is and also let them ring up the stuff. But I was nervous and a little scared. The cosmetic item was not coming up at the register like I knew it wouldn’t. So I had to overide the register to give her a gift card, worth $225.At this point
There is a security. L.p. button is on or keybaord so i pressed it while she was distracted. Security l.p. called and asked if everything was Ok.
What was I supposed to say.
She was right there. So I told l.p. everything was fine and to come down later. Then the manger in charge came down to ask if everything was alrigt, right in front of the scammy customer. All I could say was yeah eveything was just fine. Meanwhile I’m screaming on the inside. The manger in charge leaves. I take the darn cosmetic item as a return she then uses that same $225 gift card to buy expensive kids clothes and procedes to pay the rest with more gift cards. At least 3 more gift cards to be exact.

So there you have it. A sitution I could of avoided but too dumb and scared to.

Bad customer service happens to bad customers.

As someone who worked in retail for the better part of a decade….DO NOT ASK FOR A MANAGER UNLESS YOU ARE LITERALLY DYING. 

So my friend posted a little blurb on Facebook this morning and I’m going to make an example out of him because some of y’all just refuse to learn how to be a good customer.  (Warning:  I’m being petty.  And I don’t care because it’s the holiday season and I stand in solidarity with retail workers, not with terrible customers even if they are my friends.)

OK.  First, I do recognize that he actually did need a manager.  However.  You are wasting your own time when you repeatedly ask for a manager as opposed to just telling the associate why you need one.  Let me explain further.

I just want every girl to understand that this is what re-shaped thicker eyebrows, eyelash extensions, ‘drawn on’ plumper lips, styled hair, better clothes and all round make-up can do for a girl. 

The image on the left looks like an everyday girl and the image on the right is a down right celebrity look. And both are beautiful (one in more of a Bratz kind of way).

I just want you all to know that you are all capable of pulling this 'celebrity’ look off, if that’s what you desire. Don’t ever think that they are famous because they’re so much prettier or better or whatever…really…they are so much 'prettier’ BECAUSE they are famous.
And it is 80% fake.

So just remember that you are beautiful. You don’t need to look up to celebrities for beauty. Because in reality they have access to everything they could possible need in the beauty department: Makeup artists, hair stylists, high-end fashion retailers, personal trainers, personal chefs, spa’s, manicures and the inevitable plastic surgeons.


Mcspirk Roommates AU:

  • Mccoy needs somewhere to live and Spock and Jim need a third roommate to make rent.
  • Mccoy is an overworked, under-appreciated, debt-laden med student who may have gone a little overboard with the full sleeve tattoos, but still has an affinity for punk rock music and playing his battered electric guitar too loud.
  • Spock has studied art, art history, fashion design, market, costuming, etc, but nothing has really stuck.  He works high end retail instead and never commits to going after a bigger career on his terms.
  • Kirk wanted to work for NASA and be an astronaut but that’s such a pipe dream, the way things turned out.  He’s a stargazer but night, aviation mechanic by day.
  • Spock being so completely a fan of how Leonard manages to balance serious doctor with sexy, angry punk.
  • Leonard expecting Spock to drag his fashion choices but Spock has this whole fashion history lesson about how he’s impressed by it.
  • Jim thinking they’re both falling in love and being oblivious to them also being in love with him.
  • Late nights getting unlimited pancakes at a diner next to their pad.
  • House parties!!!!
  • Jim’s parties are usually pretty loud but it’s because he’s never allowed to be dungeon master after the second time.
  • Spock’s parties are usually dinner and lowkey drinks, or “work-related” artist parties like puff, puff, paint; sip and sew; or frantic innovative projects with his bff Nyota.
  • Bones doesn’t intend to have parties ever, but he somehow ends up hosting bashes with coffee table dancing and the other overworked hospital staff like Nurse Chapel and Dr. M’Benga.

ah, fame. johnny gat can handle the simple shit–taking some photos, posing with guns–but he tends not to like the events too much.

even for the grand opening of the first planet saints, the only things that got him to dig out the suit and go were promises of plenty of booze, pricey grab bags from high-end weapons retailers, and the guarantee that the paparazzi would be kept out of the afterparty. and his boss in a slinky dress, but uh, no need to bring that up

still, he wasn’t gonna go smiling for the cameras, and he nearly caused a couple amputations with the ceremonial scissors…

In which Bruce Wayne attempts to prove he cares about more than himself he has an apartment furnished for @batgirlx because hers was destroyed. He did not furnish it but requested the bat sheets. On the bed is a new slim mac book and a few gift cards for various high-end clothing retailers and a letter:

Big windows for your quick getaways. New computer for work. Don’t let people hack my life. Damian is staying with me. Thank you. xBW

let’s absorb this together:
1. mark zuckerberg owns tons of the same exact tshirt
2. mark zuckerberg has enough closet space to hang his tshirts
3. mark zuckerberg has his tshirts ironed
4. mark zuckerberg’s ironed tshirts are hung two fingerwidths apart, the ideal layout for high end retail displays
5. someone gets paid to buy mark zuckerberg 5 billion of the same tshirt, someone else gets paid to iron those identical tshirts, and probably, just because why the hell not, yet another person gets paid to hang up those tshirts and make sure they’re two fingerwidths apart

Hey, so really curious. I've never freestyled before. I'm in Dallas and <21 (and dry for various health reasons) so that gets rid of a LOT of potential. What are the types of places you might suggest? We have a shopping center that's very high end (chanel, louboutin, dior boutiques, etc). If you were going to freestyle in a place like that, how might you start or approach it? Through Starbucks, through a store? Thanks for any advice! :) Sorry if it's a little vague.

You could try the country club in your area, high class pubs (order finger food and cranberry and sparkling water), volunteer or attend charity events, convention centers, high end retail stores around the men’s section (say you’re looking for something for your brother or uncle), hospitals (I have met two surgeons at the hospital “accidentally”), financial district of your city, gym in the more expensive neighborhood of your city, whole foods or expensive grocery store in a nice neighborhood, etc. Honestly, the places to freestyle are endless considering wealthy men can be anywhere.

As far as approaching them the only thing I can say is be approachable and neatly dressed. If someone looks your way, make light eye contact or even a warm smile. If you see someone that hasn’t approached you and you are interested, I would suggest you could compliment his watch or suit. You could even break the ice by saying, “You’re here alone too?” or something cheesy. I swear men are not the hardest creatures to get they just have to be attracted to you at the bare minimum.

Hope this helps.

Fuck Entitled Customers

I used to work at Pandora at an extremely busy Outlet mall (from Vegas). My first day on the job was OPENING day of the store, and I’d received extremely subpar, inadequate training at a different location that was regular retail (so different products and prices). First day, I think the door count closed at more than 5-6 thousand people.

So Pandora is considered sort of high end retail, and associates are expected to know the names of like 200+ separate items, and work with the customer from beginning to end. For the Outlet, we were often expected to memorize the prices of everything and the discounts because customers always ask us the price of each item in the cases (obviously we don’t put price tags on the jewelry itself). Well since I had only a few days worth of training at a regular store, I barely could handle one customer let alone the onslaught of people that hit me that day.

I had trouble with our POS systems all day, and was yelled at left and right, and forced to help multiple customers at once. By the end of the shift, NONE of the associates had taken lunch breaks and I hadn’t even taken a bathroom break (that’s right, 7 whole hours of standing with no break in between).

Well, the last half hour of my shift when things were finally slowing down, a woman walks in with her husband. I greet her and ask if she needs help. She ignores me and keeps walking around the store. Then, from the other side of the store, she points at a charm and asks me the price without even looking up. I go over and let her know the price, and she tells me she’ll take it. She continues to walk around the store even after I explain that each case has the same charms and I can help her look through them in once place. Whatever. I smile through it. Then she sees the discounted tray and asks me to take it by waving her hand at me. I take it out, and she starts asking prices one after the other. Well, luckily, I have a good memory, and knew most of the prices just from that days work. She tells me she’s finished and I start ringing her up. We get to the first charm she picked out, and throws a fit when the price rings up. “Uhm, you told me this was [super low number]?”
“No ma'am, that’s for the other charms, this one has pavé CZs so it’s priced higher.”
She then proceeds to throw a fit at me and tell me I’m unfit to be a sales associate, that I lied to her and that I’m incompetent. She is literally YELLING at me at this point after her rude af attitude already. She demands to see my manager, who happened to be out running an errand, and then gets the corporate number and leaves. Her husband grimaces at me and leaves too.

I literally just went into the back room and cried. This was my first day on the job, and I was 19 at the time, full time college, and just trying to get through the day and already ready to pass out. The fact that this grown ass woman thought it was okay to do this to a sales associate who was obviously just trying to help still amazes me to this day.
