I was at a local coffee shop this morning when I overheard the conversation at the next table. Two ladies were talking about the interview one of them had later. Next thing I knew, the conversation turned to wardrobing.
One of the ladies was expressing her disgust at the other coffee shop patrons who were walking to closely to her with their cups of coffee. She talked about how mad she would be if someone spilt even a drop of coffee on her new outfit.
At first I sympathized thinking that if I had bought a new outfit to impress a potential employer, I would not want to show up with coffee stains all over it. Then I realized that the lady was upset because she needed to keep the outfit nice so she could return it to the store the next day.
It actually made me pretty disgusted, and I wanted to “accidentally” spill my coffee on her, but what good would that do? The lady was so open about her wardrobing decision that this very clearly was not her first time doing so. Unfortunately, this also would not be her last.
Wardrobing retail was part of her lifestyle. It was just something she had done for so long, that she really didn’t see anything wrong with it.
As a retailer, it is our job not to try and change the perception of these customers. It is our job to eliminate the opportunity within our own store for wardrobing to take place.
