If you are a buyer for clothing for stores in central or south Florida, please be aware that we don’t have “fall” here. It is ridiculously hot until late October, at least. When our children go back to school in August, it is above 90 degrees with 100% humidity. Meaning – it is HOT. Your stupid “Back to School” sales on long sleeved shirts and pants do nothing but make me mad.
So why, I ask you, when I went to the stores last weekend, did I only see long sleeved shirts and pants? Where were the shorts and t-shirts? OK, maybe there were a couple of clearance racks with those items, but we either already have those clothes, or of the three sizes left, the one I needed wasn’t one of them. My child is running out of clothes that he fits into, and I need SHORTS for him. It is my fault that he is burdened with second child syndrome and I was not prepared in advance for his growth spurt, but it is your fault that I can’t go out and buy clothes for him now.
And don’t even get me started on the amount of sweaters and fleece I saw. Really? You really think it is necessary to have this crap out in the stores in AUGUST? If we ever need items like that, it isn’t until January or February. Don’t think I am fooled by your little trick of lowering the a/c in the stores down to 43 degrees. I am glad you do since I can cool down from having to run into a million stores looking for shorts, but it doesn’t make me want to buy a winter coat.
Bring the shorts back, please! And while you’re at it, bring the bathing suits back too. Because, by the way, we can use those pretty much year round too.
A mom that is going to have to let my kid go to school naked since he has no summer clothes that fit him.
