One thought on “Happy Five Year Anniversary, Ventura!

  1. Those of us who have a loooonnnnggg shopping history with BE are now looking for a Buffalo Exchange store that specializes in fabulous clothes for plus sizes and/or girls “over 50”. Any chance of that demographic making a splash down either as a section in an already established store (Tucson perhaps) or as a new start-up idea? Anyone else have a want/need for this?
