| read something interesting in a press release the other day. Charming Shoppes announced that it would be taking part in a "Retail, Restaurants, and Apparel" conference this week organized by a company called Bear Stearns.|
I looked up the conference online, and it listed the companies that would be participating. Besides Charming, there was Hot Topic (Torrid) and Nordstrom (which are also plus-positive), and a number of restaurant chains, big and small.
I suppose the conference was simply about business management, but I think the grouping of the retail and restaurants is very interesting. Wouldn't it be wonderful if these groups could pool their resources and form an unofficial front, working together to fund a size-positive media, against the unholy axis of the diet, plastic surgery, and other related industries, which conspire together to deliver size-negative propaganda, just to line their pocketbooks?
