They are trying to come back.
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Nashua, NH – September 18, 2015
The Avenue used to be a quality plus-size store. Over the past four to five years, the quality has really gone down hill.
The company is slowly becoming more aware of fashion demands. There are new lines of bras, addressing a broader demographic, mirroring some of the more up-scale stores in both merchandise and store look. They have tried to maintain a more reasonable price point, but have sometimes sacrificed quality to do so. More fashion forward employees, both in the home office and the stores, would make a big difference. This might be done either in setting company policies or by training.
