Charming Shoppes - Acquires Lane Bryant Stores -- This is NOT a good thing. Charming Shoppes now controls almost all of the fat chick clothing market niche of retail shopping. Wanna know what to expect from this? The same crappy clothing choices that you find at Fashion Bug Plus and Catherine's. Much more poly-cotton knit and other cheap-ass clothing choices. This is bad news for fat chicks 'round the country. Hey, can Ulla Popken please come to our rescue? Or any other shops out there that deserve such expansion??
