Actually in high school I made a vow to never shop at VS, ever. At the time easy, I couldn't afford anything in there and my "white undies are practical cause you can bleach them" mom surely wasn't going to shell out the cash, but still a vow was made!
I was around 16 (maybe 17), and me and a few of my girl friends were at the mall mostly just hanging around and killing time before going to see a movie. We went into VS because one girl wanted some mints they sell (or sold, don't know if they still do) and yeah know looking at fancy undies seemed like fun. Well a sales girl (not much older then us) approaches and asks if we'd like to get free bra fittings to find out our correct size. Sure, free sounds good. She takes us over and is very friendly, tells us she's just started and she needs to get the practice so thank you for letting me practice on you guys. Great girl really. Well another associate joins her to help out (they were dead in there), so while first girl is measuring me, second girl measures one of my friends. Now my friend is not a small girl, she's a bit on the heavy size and well...blessed, very much so. First girl tells me my size and then tells me unfortunately we don't carry that in store (already knew that, I'm also blessed), but it is available on on-line. So far so good. Then second girl says (and I remember this to this day verbatim) "Oh, you're a big girl. Yes, we just don't carry sizes for big girls like you, in store or on line. You'll have to shop elsewhere", it was said in very mean tone. I could tell first girl was surprised at the rudeness of her co-worker and my friend was obviously upset. I have this problem where...I don't keep my mouth shut. I looked her right in the eye and said "You're a rude girl. We just don't like rude girls. We'll all be shopping elsewhere and letting our friends and family members know what a rude girl you are" and out we walked. I did call the store and explain what happened to the manager praising the customer service of the first girl, the manager responded "Well we don't cater to large women, that's not what we're in business to do", I replied, very sweetly "Funny, I assumed you were in business to make money, not alienate people, have a nice day" and hung up.
Then two years ago my friend got married and I temporarily forgot my vow and went into see what they had for lingerie bridal shower gift. First sales associate asks if I need help, I don't, and she tells me about a sale and leaves me be. The second approaches and tells me "I don't think you'll find much here", I just stare she continues "What we have is out of your price range and well dear, we just don't carry your size". Wow, she knew how much money I had and that I was shopping for a bra for myself (everything but bras in there will fit me), considering I said nothing of the sort I was very impressed by her psychic powers. I just looked down at the night gown in my hand I'd picked out for my friend and said "Yeah know, you're right, I was shopping for my friend's bridal shower and was going to pick out a nice little gift set of nighties and maybe some perfume but you're right, I don't belong here, I think I'll go give my money to another store. Be dear and re-hang this, thanks!" and walked out.
And now I really have never been back there.
