It is one of the most convenient and hence, the busiest, discount stores in Manhattan - the price caters for low to middle income brackets. The range of goods is excellent, but the quality can be questionable at times (the handbags are really, umm, ugly. Some of the Cole Haan bags are quite nice though, although not cheap enough as one would expect in a discount store). The men's attires are really good, but for ladies, well, it is a bit of a mess. You can find anything from cheap $9.90 tee-shirt to $2500+ Emilio Pucci dress. Some of the goods are really outdated, other looks like they belong in a seconds or a donation bin (buyers, beware of wear and tear and broken zippers on some items). Occasionally you will find things that are really nice at a reasonable price (the Juicy Couture selection are recommended). One will really have to spend a considerable amount of time to comb through everything, as it is unlikely anything will catch your eyes on first sight. ItÂ’s a bit of a mess, but hey, it might be worth it! Good luck!

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
