What a waste!

After we reported in the February issue that Spiegel was buying Clifford & Wills (CW) from J. Crew, we thought we’d seen the last of the CW liquidation books. Instead, we received CW catalogs nearly every other week throughout January and early February. This wouldn’t be so bad – except that the last few times Catalog Age staffers tried to order items, the merchandise was out of stock. If our experience is any indication, the company has virtually nothing in stock these days. As a result, we’ve been throwing the ubiquitous catalogs straight into the garbage.
