Sam Moon is no joking matter. I know I’ve heard people talk about how big it is and how much stuff it has to offer, but – WOW – even I was impressed. Being an avid shopper at Forever 21 stores all across the area, I thought I was going to be prepared for the hectic, jam-packed ways of Sam Moon. I was wrong.
The store’s flagship location in Dallas has purses, earrings, necklaces, rings, luggage, and as if that weren’t enough, an entire section on faux hair. A security guard sits at the front and monitors what seems like thousands of women packing the inside of this mega store.
Although a little overpowering at first glance, the store is actually (somewhat) organized by large hanging signs clarifying what section you are in. It’s easy to get confused when first walking in, but after the initial anxiety wears off, it’s really not too bad.
A crucial part of the Sam Moon shopping experience is maneuvering – not just around the merchandise, but also the crowds of people in the store. The busiest day to shop at Sam Moon is, no doubt, Saturday. I visited the store on Friday afternoon due to my obligations at my part time job (which I need because interning at D Magazine is un-paid <cough, cough>). Â Nevertheless, the crowd was still in attendance, and the merchandise was still in full force.
Surprisingly, I had enough self control to not purchase anything and just observe the overall ambiance of the monstrosity that is Sam Moon. The thing I love most about Sam Moon is no matter how popular it gets or how much publicity surrounds it, the prices are still affordable. This truly is a dream store for anyone looking for jewelry, purses or an excuse to shop ‘til you drop on any given weekday or weekend.
