Was in the AE Cabazon Store on Sunday. Not only are there signs in the store about the closing, but AE has rented the big billboard just west of Cabazon to announce the closing and the "up to 60% savings".

In the store, did not find much if anything at 60% off (mcallister spectator at $149?), saw some other brand shoes stacked up and saw a different assortment of clearance shoes than before.

Depressingly, this is the only AE store WEst of Omaha, and it is soon to be history. The store clerk told me AE does not intend to sell out the merchandise but is sending a truck to haul off the unsold merchandise--so no last minute deep discounts to take the bitter sting out of the closing.

They raised the price on the MacNeil seconds I was interested in as well. Sad days...

They have to maintain the "exclusivity" of Allen Edmonds, don't they? I sometimes wonder if these companies are deliberately trying to reduce the number of shoes they sell. I just learned the other day that the reason Rego Clothiers no longer stocks JM Weston shoes in Toronto is not because of the extremely high price, but rather because it takes anywhere from 6 months to a year to get shipment of regular stock shoes. Forget special order.

Anyway, I sympathize with your loss of your local store.
