How do you pick and choose where you shop?
In a city where the fashion variety is as plethoric as the number of restaurants, it is clear that the Bay Area has its own hold on personal style. In a region where you can buy a t-shirt for anywhere from $5-500, how do you choose where to spend your dough? Asking this question to a few of folks that I work it, it because clear that just about everyone has their own judgment system: who they see roaming the store, the brands they carry, if they recycle or not – these are just some of the responses that I got.
How do you personally pick your stores? Do you both reading reviews on sites such as Yelp before you go? Would you visit any shop at least once to see if they have anything you like? Do you stick to stores that only sell to a certain “lifestyle” or “crowd”, such as mod, hippie, preppy … etc? Is the neighborhood the store is located in just as important as what they sell? Or, above it all, do you just avoid the city and shop online?
