I'm not even angry at these dumb business decisions anymore- just a shrug and a sad walking away. I've been going into the store once or twice a month just to see if anything good from the website turns up returned in the sale section but my (ridiculous and unreturned) loyalty and patience are pretty much gone. Final sale on things that aren't even that marked down says to me they don't have faith in their products and just want to offload them for the cash. Ugh.

The SA was telling people on the weekend that it was because anthro has never offered 50% off like that (right, not like every January since that store opened in 2012?) and also failed to actually inform me it was final sale until the purchase was completed! (I only bought a Tiny dress because it actually was on super sale)

Certainly those old warm fuzzy feelings are long gone. So frustrated for all of you that have had these long-term issues because of THEIR shipping errors! That sucks!

What? There are delays with DHL? That's messed up- if I have to pay THAT much to get my stupid stuff I should get it FAST! Aargh. Wish I could cancel...

The printed and pleated skirt is really gorgeous! And I have a few sweaters on my wishlist- the plaid mckinley pulllover and the Mayella sweater coat...

Totally! I feel like they should be taking tips from Doen and ChristyDawn (even if we're still talking about an urban outfitters company). They could do well by making fewer things but with care and good fabrics. I bought a fabulous cotton akemi peasant blouse (in my favourite ochre colour) and I feel like I can wear it forever.

Agreed, this is the part I find frustrating. It just makes shopping there a bit unpleasant, like they're desperate to sell stock but don't really care about the customer experience anymore. The new policy about price changes isn't posted at the cash like the returns policy is. I bought a sale blouse on Monday and by Tuesday morning they announced the 25% off was back on (I mean, it's almost constant these days!). But no price adjustment for me! I mean, everything has been extra % off almost constantly. it`s like I had the bad luck to walk in the one day it wasn't...

I bought a t-shirt with the 25% off but I had kinda justified the unnecessary purchase because I would have a price adjustment on the blouse. Will likely return it. At least the blouse is 100% cotton and awesome, so there`s that. I can`t stand the cheap rayon they use for blouses and dresses so often- it doesn`t age well and always shrinks and wrinkles.

Sorry Anthro, I think you finally lost my good will. :(

Sadly, my bottom is also my fastest growing category....

Good to hear that the company is doing okay. I would hate for my store to close! I'm still finding things I want every month or so, and I love browsing after work. More a-line skirts please!

Hey klj1! I was thinking about this and I wondered if they still had it at my store. The do! Is it this one, sort of a sheer dress- it's called the Midori Duster from Maeve. 49.95 on sale. They have 2 smalls at my store.

There are always a few nice things I can convince myself I need. But only when I can find them in store, which is rare, or when some other schmo ordered online and made a return. (I have to say, there must be someone in Montreal with similar taste to mine because I frequently find online-only things in the sale section in my size- thank you mystery returner!)

Saw a lovely grid top in store and had to buy it- the Epstein Structured Top is really nice and substantial and *only* 78 CAD (68 US). It's just what I've been looking for, and it`s neither shapeless, oversized, or cropped!

There's a lovely dress that seems to have sold out very quickly online- the knit turtleneck midi dress. I hope that means they`ll restock and actually ship it to Canadian stores!

This is so sad. Even though some of the clothing still occcasionally hits the mark (I'm looking at you, Susan Ruffled Pullover...) (not that I can count on finding them in my local store), but the styling and models are so lacking in any inspiration or fun. There`s just no character left! I mean, there have always been some crazy pieces and flops at Anthro (fit, fabric etc) but at least there were cool styling options and combinations that might make you look twice at something. They've so lost their way. I look at the new arrivals page and see a weird mish-mash of other retailers styles. No personality.

There are 25th anniversary parties happening at stores and just feels like there`s nothing to celebrate. But my local store does great workshops and events! I just wish they got more clothing options to draw me in regularly...
