The news that Best Buy is courting the female demographic with a line of Liz Claiborne products is deeply disconcerting. It has been practically impossible to get my wife into such a store in the past, with the happy result that my buying impulses are wholly unsupervised. On the show tonight, the male callers were overwhelmingly against this innovation, primarily as they saw their gadget haul crumbling before their eyes, and the dreams of a big screen receding.
I hope Circuit City holds the line.
UPDATE: Please let the record show that it was Radioblogger, not me, who commented on tonight’s show that “the Liz Claiborne section will be like day care –just drop your wife there.”
