    Tucson is in the 6 months of summer. We are the third hottest city in the USA. Would you not think that with the danger of these stores closing, due to lack of sales, that they would listen to the calls made to corporate, but oh no, Stein Mart always does things that show no respect for the customer . The employees are excellent and so personable. It is a lovely store. But I too am shopping on line as they are open at the time I want to order.I prefer however to see the merchandise.The store personal want better hours for us too.I do like the store. but at age 82 I like to get in and out before the heat hits.The stores in tucson all have self centered CEO, and then wonder why there places are on the hit list for closures.I would say to Stein mart, test it and be the leader in store sales.

    I bought a tignanello purse from a shelf that said 30% off and at the cashier the lady told me it was not on sale. After we purchased it she went to the shelf and removed the 30% off sign. The store should honor the discount listed.

    Hi - I am very fond of Stein Mart. I must admit that maybe I am too fond of the store. I have to poke my head inside the door everytime I get an email with an item I may be interested in and... quite possibly on sale. I have purchased clothing, bed coverlet, pillows, dishes, my crock pot and Rachel Ray spaghetti maker all from Stein Mart. I confess, this is the only store I need. My only negative is the name of the store. I originally thought it was a piano store selling Steinway pianos. I WAS WRONG!!! Once you go inside the store there is a world of fresh merchandise and styles. Oh I forgot to mention, they have a great shoe department. I luv the IMPO Brand - I love the styles and the fit. I am never disappointed with Stein Mart. I live in Southern California and I literally only shop at Stein Mart. Great service, great people - just want you all to know this store is special. And, since Stein Mart is not inside a large mall but rather in neighborhood shopping areas - parking for me is always easy and convenient.

    I received an email stating that my order was cancelled because they are out of stock. I went online and saw that I can order the same exact blanket for regular price. So they are not out of stock. The customer service Rep said she can't reorder at sale price. order Number [protected]

    I went in to return an item, and purchase another item. The cashier on duty
    was very rude in her disposition. She never gave a smile, and talked abrupt.
    I worked with Stein Mart fourteen years, and was appalled at the customer
    services skills this young lady has.

    You have to be superman to work here. Don't expect to finish your tasks I'm in the floor because you have to also be cashier most of the day and watch other departments from other constant employee call outs. Oh and make sure you help out every customer that comes your way because just ticking one off can cause them to call corporate no matter if it's your fault or theirs.
    I've worked here for 5 years and don't see the workplace the same like I used to. I used to feel excited to come to work and felt like it was a breath of fresh air from being anywhere else. Now it's expectations, pleasing every customer, and doing other peoples work.
    Now I don't mind giving good customer service and helping out others but it's gotten ridiculous now, like it's so stressful to work now.
    It's poor management that I really blame in the store. It's never enough cashiers or people working most days. And that creates more work for the floor people.
