    I don’t like the way this is merchandised, it is offensive. This space is not being utilized to it’s full potential. Also Bella who wrote this article this sentence is not well written. Who ever wrote it let them know that their Thesaurus let them down. The pieces on displayed needs to ironed and re-selected. Some items can be folded there is to much clothes being hanged up.
