Rugged Warehouse may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I like this store. Unlike other places, this Rugged Warehouse doesn’t subscribe to any particular style to draw customers, but draws them in by providing plenty of variety instead, with the added bonus of sometimes having some cheap designer labels thrown into the mix; Rugged Warehouse is much kinder to your wallet than many mall stores as well. One downside, however, might be that often when a person walks into a Rugged Warehouse, it can feel exactly like a cluttered warehouse; the setup is pretty basic, guys’ stuff on one side and women’s on the other, with an aisle between the two huge sections but that’s about as organized as it gets. It’s easy to tell that it’s hard for the workers in the store to keep everything in order because of the girth of the store’s merchandise; the disorder in this store isn’t nearly as bad as some others (finding exactly one size for every article of clothing in some mall stores, for example, that’s been slapped onto a rack without any rhyme or reason), though. Another downside might be the lack of décor; as mentioned before, the feel can be that of an actual warehouse because of how big it is and the fairly plain setup; the only real ornament in the store is the merchandise. I personally don’t have a problem with this – the only things I need to put me in a mood to shop is plenty of variety, cheap prices, and a general , sensible sense of order (shelves, racks hooks with more than one of a particular item) which is definitely things that the Rugged Warehouses I’ve encountered deliver on.
I really like this store. I like it because I can find brand name things for a ridiculously low price. The only thing I would say would be that I absolutely hate the atmosphere. Of the 2 locations i've been to, both have been very unkempt and cluttered. The lighting is very low, and the dressing rooms are very poor. All that aside, if you're looking for a good deal, Rugged Wearhouse has great brands for great prices.
