This clothing retailer for women has been around for about 15 or more years now. This despite not having that great a selection of clothes to choose from.

I've always resented the fact that they've never invested in an elevator. A simple thing really, and slightly petty, but when you've been shopping in this Downtown Brooklyn area and you have mutliple bags in hand, the LAST thing you want to do is go up that impossibly long curving staircase up the two levels (it is two levels in stairs by the way) to the upper level that contains the clothes.

I've never figured out exactly what it is that makes this store so depressing. Really Dark Bad Lighting that has you squinting? Check. Poor Organization of Clothes? Check. Huge gaps left empty like they took stuff out and never filled up the space? Check. Weird semi circular presentation of clothes? Check. Excessive amounts of Glass walls that someone invariably walks into? Double Check.

All in all it doesn't make for an enjoyable shopping experience. Yet, you have to go in. Because just maybe after digging through the cheapy cheapy & really tacky & ultra low quality teen stuff, soldiering through a really huge convergence of "Grandma's Clothing Discards For Church" and the really bad catalog clothing surplus, then MAYBE, just maybe you can find a really cool pair of designer jeans ($15-25), a nice blazer to go with said designer jeans or enhance that budding business wardrobe with some nice tanks or camisoles and even gamely try to rifle through the skanky "dress/evening wear" section in the hopes of finding something simple, classic and without a flower, diamond or sequin in the bunch. Or you can admit defeat and run for dear life back down the stairs, hoping you don't break your neck, to peruse the "designer plastique" bags or try on the shoes/sandals/boots section in the normal, BRIGHTLY lit ground floor. Note that other Strawberry shops are NOT like this, and are brightly lit and pleasant places to shop.
