Not true for Target. At least three stores in CA have two level stores.

It's rare, to say the least. WalMart has passed major urban areas because they don't want to go vertical. They've got a couple, but they're not hurrying to build more. (And I would be shocked to find a lot of parents wheeling a cart with their child in it over to the cart-roller-coaster out of reach, but maybe that's just me.)

So if Land's End is the only brand of value in the apparel segment,

How many brands of value does Kohl's have? (They have Levi's, as does Sears). How many does JC Penny have? There are plenty of stores which do nicely enough providing unbranded, but reasonably priced clothing for shoppers. Of course I wouldn't know a clothing brand if it hit me in the face, but how many "clothing brands" does Target have? Yet they allocate half the store to it, don't they?
