Old Navy Doesn't Respect Larger Women

I was just reading a post over at Pasta Queen and discovered that Old Navy is pulling their size 22-26 clothes out of their stores and making them available only online. I think is is disrespectful and a bad business decision, but Pasta Queen puts her dissatisfaction much more eloquently than I do, so visit her blog ... http://pastaqueen.com

I did write a disgruntled email to Old Navy and told them that the least they could do is make shipping free for the sizes they don't (won't) carry in their stores. Pasta Queen conveniently posted the customer service email, toll free number and mailing address for the jerks at Old Navy.

There's also a petition to stop Old Navy from doing this at ... http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/224525614?ltl=1178301217

I like their t-shirts, but not enough to keep shopping somewhere that discriminates against beautiful, vibrant women who want to buy their clothes.

That's a shame. It was enough that not every Old Navy carried the plus size clothing. I would go across the city for one of the ones that did. I'm sorry to hear they're pulling it. At the same time, I'm almost not wearing those sizes anymore, so it won't affect me. But it still pisses me off.

A lot of clothing stores seem to be that way. I wonder why.

I dont even think my local Old Navy even carried plus size.

how disgusting. what's their excuse? surely they won't be foolish enough to say there's no market . . . image problem? grrrrrrrr :(

i fear we are headed toward increasingly vicious attacks on fat people. i read something on msn.com yesterday which included the phrase "and they needed to lose, on average, a whopping 37 pounds."

emphasis added. 37 pounds. whopping? please.
