    Personal stylist? Not really my thing. Can't see most dudes going for this unless the stylist is a hot chick.

    Sounds like combining the one drawback of online - you can't see, touch, try on the actual merchandise - with the inconvenience of a store (how clunky did that "curbside pickup" sound as you know that won't be seamless).

    Why would I go pick up something curbside when they'll just ship it to me for free?

    As a small business owner, in the marketing trade, most people that go to stores wish to try things on before they buy. If they wish to purchase online, they will do so and have it sent to their house.

    I thought a personal stylist was a personal hairdresser/make-up artist/podiatrist/whatever? Wouldn't these just be store clerks?

    Well dressed clerks.

    I get the whole point with personal stylist and I can see them doing this in very specialty markets with clients who may go in for that sort of thing.

    A woman calls her "stylist" and a shop and tells her she's going to a party Saturday night and to pull some outfits for her. She goes, tries a bunch on and buys one. Of course, the stuff is there to try on.

    I'll hand it to them for thinking outside the box. I wish them well.

    I agree it would not be for me. Having said that, if they are trying it I assume they have done their research and think it could work. It will be interesting to see what happens in a year. Certainly AAAC members are not their target audience.
