Loehmann's isn't Loehmann's anymore

Loehmann's sure isn't. And I'm not referring to the fact that not only is there a dressing room, so one doesn't have to try on between the racks, like it was originally, nor the fact that I saw that they had some private dressing rooms off of the "group" one, at least in the Lake Success, NY, branch. In the "old" or real Loehmann's the clothes for sale were designer, samples, great deals for discount prices. Now, it's just a "low-price" department store. The "old" or real Loehmann's didn't have racks of identical clothes in a variety of colors and sizes. They had "pot luck" closeouts, surprises, rarely a full-range of sizes. That would only be if a store closed before it got to sell what it had ordered. Loehmann's would get the "unsold" from stores which had gone bankrupt. You can fill a couple of stores like that, but now it's a chain with the name.
