Has anyone shopped Steve and Barry's? The idea is such an intriguing one. The store's concept is to sell high-quality, very inexpensive clothing for the masses. Usually, in Utah, we have to wait for cool stores and restaurants to open here(unless they are the brainchild of some enterprising Utahn themselves i.e. Cafe Rio, Apollo Burger, Shade Clothing).
Anyway, I have been a bit under the weather, and while catching up with my tivo after the holiday season, I realized the new season of Project Runway has commenced. On the second episode, Sarah Jessica Parker guests to promote her new "bitten" line at Steve and Barry's stores. The entire collection retails for less than $20. Jeans are ten dollars, pea coats are $15... and so on. I have heard the radio ads for her line so when I saw her on the show I was pretty excited. I actually really like SJP. I have since Girls Just Want to Have Fun.
In case you don't remember, Steve and Barry's is the store that debuted the "Starbury," which we read about only in newspapers here. These are Stephan Marbury's basketball shoes that claim to be as good as Jordan's, but sell for $15. The S&B website attributes it's ability to sell clothing for so cheap by saying that they have changed the way they do business. They even site the way the buy paper clips. I am excited about the idea, and can't wait to venture all the way to Murray to check it out.. (That is right girls our store opened earlier this month). We shall see if they are as great as they sound. I only hope the great prices don't come from their amazing ability to exploit children in sweatshops...
Has anyone shopped this store yet?? What did you think?
