Dear clothing stores of the world,
I can not begin to tell you how frustrated I am that, in DECEMBER, I can not find snow gear for my kids, ANYWHERE. While I appreciate that snow gear gets put out in fall so people can buy ahead of time and be prepared, I find it mind boggling that DURING the winter it is nowhere to be found.
What if my child's snow suit rips and can not be repaired? Now I am up shit creek without a paddle, because every store is sold out of winter gear come November. Costco even goes as far as to put out winter gear in mid July. JULY!!! Give me a break people.
Clearly, whoever is in charge of merchandising for these stores, does not have children. If you had children, you would know that us parents want to ring your necks. I can not find waterproof gloves, I can not find snow pants, I can not find winter jackets. It's not possible. If you had children, you would know that some kids are walking train wrecks. You would know that, due to being accident prone, some kids will rip their gear beyond repair. "Buy two in advance" you say? Sure. Would you like to give me the money to buy my kids two snow suits every year? It's not plausible.
It's not your fault these kids should be bubble wrapped. I get it. I just don't understand WHY for the love of everything holy, can I not buy winter gear IN THE FREAKING WINTER??????? I know I can't be alone in this.
I am hoping that maybe this letter clicks for some retailers. Maybe next year, I will be able to buy replacement gloves, hats, snow pants, coats etc. without having to comb the entire planet.
Frustrated parents everywhere
