As you would expect there are racks of Vanity Fair underwear, nightgowns and bathrobes. But there is so much more than that here. There are Lee jeans, shirts, underwear,socks and slacks for men, women and children. There are also rack after rack of Healthtex childrens and baby clothes. There are other brands as well. Certainly you can find almost anything you might want.
But if you don't, you can try one of the 13 other stores in the building. We got some great buys at the Van Heusen Store. But we spent the most time at the Book Warehouse II. Romance novels for $.95 , westerns same price, travel books $3.95, cookbooks $4.95. We paid $32 for a huge bag of books. A bag like this at a regular bookstore would be $150 or more.
There is a shoe store, Samsonite, The Paper Factory and more. You can spend several hours here, very enjoyably.
And there were certaily plenty of bargains to be had.
