cb2 is a big disappointment

cb2 new yorkWe have been buying from cb2.com for random home goods a while now, and most of the time we are happy with the stuff we got. For furniture, we have got a table and some chairs and we like them okay.

I was longing for their first store to be opened in New York, which finally did open. We paid a visit last night and boy, was it a big disappointment! The merchandise was poorly displayed, everything was so cramped together. The store was like hodge pot of everything (cheap merchandise) poorly arranged, just like another Bed Bath and Beyond. The merchandise, honestly, was not attractive.

I have to to say that they have a much better and inviting catalog than their store front. Their sofas are cheap-looking and lame, and it also means that everything is overpriced. I am glad that we didn’t buy any of the sofas, when we almost bought them through the catalog.

Enough said, cb2 is the Gap, or even Old Navy, of Crate and Barrel. Very disappointing indeed.

P.S. Meanwhile, MUJI will be opened right next to cb2 next week. I took a peek inside the store last night, now that’s is going to be good.

    Wait… okay: why aren’t you yelping? This is so totally yelp-worthy.

    Well, because I don’t want to get addicted to another thing. I am already non-stoppable on Facebook. I don’t need another one, as I am sure that I will be addicted to it.
