Lady Foot Locker Claims to Cater to Women, But Leaves Our "Girls" Flopping All Over The Place!

Posted Sun January 24, 2010 8:30 pm, by Angela N. written to Lady Foot Locker


Why do your stores not carry SPORTS BRAS?

I went to your Mall of America (Bloomington, MN) location tonight to look at sports bras. I wasn't hopeful, as the last time I was shopping for them, your stores carried only sports bras that have to be pulled on and off over the head, rather than having fasteners in front of in back.

I was disgusted just trying them on a year ago. It was an uncomfortable, frustrating experience. I ended up shopping at a department store.

Tonight, I took a chance and made LFL my first stop. I was informed that you no longer carry sports bras. WHAT? A basic component of workout gear for women and your women-focused sporting wear stores no longer offer them?

Your Foot Locker stores carry jockstraps for men and boys. So why no support options for women?

I walked out of the store, disgusted once again. I won't even consider shopping at Lady Foot Locker for shoes or other workout apparel, because why should I reward you for limiting what you offer?

Why should I have to visit two stores when one should carry what I need? Answer: I shouldn't.

I'll be giving my business to the department stores from now on. Kohl's carries a wide selection of running shoes and crosstrainers, AND Kohl's sells sports bras!

I'd like Lady Foot Locker to either live up to its NAME and sell sports bras as a women-oriented sports apparel store SHOULD, or just drop the "Lady" from its name. I don't see a point in having a specialty store if you're going to refuse to carry such an essential item.

Why not make your own line of sports bras called
"Holdsemfromfloppin"

I was in a Lady Foot Locker last weekend and was put off by the total
lack of...well, anything, really. They had very few brands and styles
of shoes; their stock was overwhelmingly Nike, which I've never liked.
99% of their shoes were white, which is boring. They had a few cute
track suits but nothing really practical or well-designed for actual
workouts or specific sports. Their clothes looked cheaply-made but
were priced ridiculously. The whole place said real loudly and
clearly "this is not where adult women want to buy fitness clothing."

Go online and buy sports bras from Lucy or Hanes or MovingComfort.

K-Mart actually has variety of sports bras in just about any size and
color; ones that can be opened and closed in the front; and also offer
support. I was searching everywhere for these and Kmart has a large
selection - and if not at the store try Kmart online.

Also I may be wrong but did not Foot Locker file for bankrupcy just a
while ago, maybe before these past holidays? Seems if they were
downsizing or closing stores they would not be re-stocking.

Let me get this straight: you were "disgusted" trying on the sports
bras they had a year ago and now you
are "disgusted" because they don't carry sports bras at all? Why do
you care what they do with their sports bra selling if you didn't like
the ones they had in stock anyways?

I was hoping they would be carrying something different/new by RedheadwGlasses Tue January 26, 2010 @ 1:11 PM

you might also want to check out some of the larger sporting goods
companies.

i'm not surprised that a small mall store would have a limited
supply.

it's a bit like going to Waldenbooks and then Borders (W is a
subsidiary of B). The selection will always be bigger in the store
with the more floor space.

If you are not happy, then by all means, shop at Kohl's.

It is all about supply and demand. Likely nobody was buying their
sports bras there so they discontinued them. If they were such a hot
seller, I bet they would have at least a few racks of them.

My only guess would be the size of the store. You mentioned having to
goto LFL then Kohl's well Kohl's is probably 500 times bigger than any
LFL I have ever seen so they probably have to limit what they actually
put in the store, while Kohls can accomidate alot more inventory.

Just my manly 2 cents for what its worth.

The cynic in me is tempted to say it is "Foot Locker", not "Breast
Locker", but you are very passionate about one stop shopping.

The online LFL has a full complement of sports bras, both compression
and other pull-overs, and well as underwire with fastener closures.

As far as Foot Locker stores carrying jock straps, is it possible they
take up a much smaller amount of floor space than sports bras would?
The number of sports bras at the online site looks to be quite large.
Throw in the various sizes, and it seems like it would take up quite a
bit of room. I'm thinking of the racks and racks of bras I see in a
store like JC Penny.
