I bought two nice Greg norman shirts at local macy's  last week for 8 dollars each.

Thats a good deal especially since the regular price for the sharks shirts are $100

The Greg Norman stuff at Macy's is private label. If they say $100 on the tag (which I'd be surprised) it's just to show a crazy perceived value because they're always on sale. Of course, everything is only worth what someone is willing to pay but, those shirts are on par with most $29 golf polos. There's nothing wrong with them at all, but they're definitely not $100 shirts.
Agree.....They are normally 49.50 and are usually 25% off.....I see them in Macy's all the time......Still pretty nice shirts for 8.00, at least good enough for me.

Hey, you know that other store in the mall...Hot Topic? The one that is mainly involved with music and pop culture? Used to be a lot of punks and kids wearing all black?

This is what I dressed like to work there.

I was only 22 at the time. People not dressing up to work at Macy's? That has nothing to do with an age group, or the type of job. It just means those certain individuals you saw have no standards to which they hold themselves. I like dressing nice and looking good, even if a job doesn't call for/require it.

I am not sure if you're directing your post to me but I never made any mention of a particular age group in my original post.
My post was meant to explain how my experience at Macy's was aweful.. from the store's condition to the attire as worn by the employees it was a far cry from what retail giants used to require from their employees including myself.
And as I mentioned in my original post it's no wonder why retail Giants are closing at a precipitous rate.

And as for those people that have Greg Norman clothing in their closet,  I too have some of his clothing line in my closet. At last count I have three shirts and 2 shorts of his line and yes, the quality of aforementioned clothing is nice especially for the price you can get them.
However, I'm not willing to subject myself to the retail nightmare I witnessed tonight to ascertain said clothing, I will give them my business via their website.

It has everything to do with the type of job. Employees of a retail store are representing that store and that is the profession they choose to participate in, therefore they should dress the part.
As I mentioned before, surely there has to be a multitude of reasons why retail giants are closing every single month and perhaps it is factors such as the ones that I mentioned they should be taking a look at to try to shore up these problems.

My last visit to Macy's was months ago.  Picked up some Greg Norman shirts and shorts and wanted to buy some suit separates for an upcoming wedding.  The formal section was a hot mess.  All the dressing rooms were taken.  One guy thought he could just reserve one of the dressing rooms for himself.  Had his girl friend standing guard on it while he went out to get more clothes from the store.  We got into it about his selfish behavior.  The clerk refused to intervene.  My wife convinced me to "let it go".  That there are rude people in this world and to not let it raise my blood pressure.  I'll never set foot in that Macy's again.   Never bought the Greg Norman clothes.

Compared to 15 years ago when I bought a suit at Macy's and it was like going to a high end men's store and getting personal treatment.  They just can't compete anymore.

I am not sure who to have more sympathy for.
1. Folks like you and I that remembered a different time when there was a sense of classiness when you walked into a retail store.
2. Younger generations who will never be able to experience that
3. Or I wonder is it best to never have experienced it and that way your expectations are not as high

I wound up buying a suit at Mens Wearhouse and had a great experience. Although, i am shocked whenever i receive great service. It's not that often.

Immediately would have been dismissed by me as a regional manager or a corporate store turnaround specialist.  Good for you, Hot Topic workers look horrid

I mean, you originally did. You mentioned the "Millennial" employees. That refers to a specific generation, aka age group. You've since edited your original post.

I'd get tons of high school kids coming in asking me, "Why do YOU work here?"

Umm...maybe because I grew up and was a part of the underground/DIY punk scene since 15? Because I'm more into music than you little turds would ever be. Because I needed a night job after being done with my day job.

To be fair, you look like you should be working at a Polo or Ralph Lauren store dressed like that.  I'll be honest and say that I have always avoided Hot Topic stores, but if we flipped the script and I went into a Polo store and saw an employee dressed in an outfit purchased from Hot Topic, I'd avoid or ignore your style suggestions.

The only golf attire I buy at Macy's are the Greg Norman shorts, when they go on sale and you can get them for ~$25.  They're pretty comfortable and a good bargain.

This thread is funny to me.

1) OP's main gripe was more overall condition of the store and salespeople. Not sure about OP's market, but near me there's a mall with Bloomingdale's, Lord and Taylor, Nordstrom and Macy's. Macy's is the lower priced option, with sales, items that I consider affordable, etc. The others are not nearly as affordable.

With that store's position as a less expensive option, I don't expect the same standard of employee or the store in general. That's fine to me, though, because I can actually afford things in their store.

2) (Disclaimer: This contains generalizations and not personal attacks. I know most of WRX has enough money to support local business with full-price purchases for everything they need.) Retail stores are closing because of the current culture of everyone wanting name brands but not paying for them. Customers, myself included, have been conditioned to wait until a 40% sale comes along because, well, it will. If purchases aren't being made at full price, retail stores are not making the profits they need to keep the lights on.

I am also one of these people.  IMO we need to wait for 40% off though because everything is so insanely overpriced these days.

You should read my post again, and then you will realize I did not mention anything about millenials in my OP.  someone else did, therefore you are directing your comments to the wrong person.

I edited my original post after seeing the horrific number of typos I had in it.
If I made a comment about millennials or anything else for that matter, I would own it and keep it moving.  In this case I didn't so don't say I did
I didn't edit my OP to "save face" or whatever else you are trying to say I did.

Going to Macy's to purchase golf clothes is like going to Dick's Sporting Goods to purchase living room furniture.

Huh?

Macy's sells clothes suitable for golf.

Dicks doesn't sell furniture.

When I was in HS and worked retail from 1981-1983, I made $3.50 per hour and wore button down shirts with a tie every day to work.

Sure and I was barefoot on glass...

Seriously, there's no excuse for dressing sloppily and unprofessionally.  I was taught to dress for the job I want, not the one I have.

Von Maur has that classy appeal that you are looking for.  They have a piano player, nice bathrooms, professional looking sales folks...nice experience

And I find amazing clearance deals on the shirts that are like 60-80 at Carls and Miles, Golf Galaxy...

Bathrooms at Von Maur in West Des Moines are A No. 1!

Piano fun this time of year, good stuff to buy (not my choice for golf at all) was just down that way and always good to have a short list of good public "facilities" in any town. ;-)

2) (Disclaimer: This contains generalizations and not personal attacks. I know most of WRX has enough money to support local business with full-price purchases for everything they need.) Retail stores are closing because of the current culture of everyone wanting name brands but not paying for them. Customers, myself included, have been conditioned to wait until a 40% sale comes along because, well, it will. If purchases aren't being made at full price, retail stores are not making the profits they need to keep the lights on.

I am also one of these people.  IMO we need to wait for 40% off though because everything is so insanely overpriced these days.

Heck Macys is high end for me. Fortunately Target and Wal-Mart sell cargo shorts so I'm good!��

Wal-Mart Wrangler cargos in a "stone" color are my go to shorts.  Except for dressing a little nicer when we were in Irvine this summer and the occasional round in golf pants, or more likely jeans, played 80% of my rounds in that pair of shorts.

I doubt the $3.50 part-time job was enough to pay for all of those button-downs/ties - who bought the threads for you?

That 3.50 was more compared to today's 8 bucks.
