So I go to the fishnets and grab what I need and then decide to go look at the shoes. There are a couple pairs of a certain shoe that I like so I go to try on the ones in my size and lo and behold, they are two right shoes. So I ask an associate if there are any more and he says that all the stock is out there. So I mention that there are two shoes missing and if he knew where they could be. So he apologizes and gets a manager; she comes over and says the same spiel about all the stock is on the floor. So I explain about the shoes, and she just shrugs and walks away. Now, I understand if there is no shoe stock kept in the back, but I was not asking about hypothetical shoes. At some point there were left shoes in the store. I don't think it would have been too much to ask for one of them to actually look to see where they had disappeared to, especially since that is about $60 worth of merchandise that is now unusable/missing. At the very least I thought it would have been appropriate for the manager to take the shoes that are now unsellable off the shelf instead of leaving them there.
Its not a huge suck, and I understand that they couldn't make the shoes appear out of mid-air, but some kind of effort to figure out what happened to the other shoes would have been nice.
