A couple of the names were surprising (Eddie Bauer?), but this one wasn't. When your entire business model is based on a fashion fad that involves cheap ugly shoes, hey - how long did you expect it to last?
Wait, you forgot something in your description - cheap ugly shoes that cost a silly amount of money.
Too bad about Saturn - we haven’t bought anything but Saturn for my husband’s work car since our first 10 yrs ago because of the “price is the price” policy and great customer service. And Eddie Bauer is his favorite store for clothes. I don’t think I’ll tell him.
I disagree. Crocs are fantastic. The problem was the kock-offs. My kids all have fake Crocs, gotten for between $2 and $10, while the name-brand Crocs were $30-45. They must have had a crappy copyright/patent law firm, because those knock-offs were available less than a year after Crocs came out.
