Packs a Pleasant Punch :)

Despite all the goings on with Gap Inc. these days...and despite the fact that I sort of thought Piperlime might not be the best road to hoe at the time...

I recently shopped at Piperlime and had a great experience!
And I'm very happy! Yey! Something good.

I think the site needs a bit of help (I thinks it's using a lot of the same type of platform as their other stores too, which is all bad)...but it was good shoes, good quality all around that I found.

Also, they served up one of these checkout surveys, where you could type feed back & I actually got a response from a "real" <seeming anyways> person!
I liked that too.

Ok, and I liked the packaging, it was cute with lime green & a clear receipt with return label if the need was to be.

A little pre-purchase blog posting from CAPs:

So, for me it's Banana Repulic & Piperlime thumbs up...
Fourth & Towne & Old Navy...thumbs-sideways leaning down?
And GAP, thumbs down...

I think there is hope, but they need to make some bold moves...

Cheers Fools,
E
