Syms, a girl's new best friend



CupidWonder of wonders, miracle of miracles... The shopping matchmakers have found me a mate.

Once I lusted for the likes of ROSS, TJ Maxx and Marshalls. Now I know true love. Its name is Syms. The store motto says it all: An Educated Consumer is Our Best Customer.

Syms is big. It is cheap. Right now, red-lined items are an extra 20 percent off.

Be still my heart.

On my first visit, I was greeted by a display of Missoni clothing. A Nicole Miller leather jacket, originally $325, could be snagged at half price. A LBD by Calvin Klein had a sliding cost, joy of joys, with the price coming down every two weeks it stayed in the store.

Did I mention that Syms is huge? It has men's clothing and kid's clothing -- and household linens, too? And loads of ladies plus sizes?

I've driven past the gray warehouse store on Hillsborough Avenue in Tampa a thousand times without noticing it. Bless the dear Deal Diva reader who shared the tip that led to our first date. We all know that when it comes to shopping, monogamy is totally overrated. Visit Syms and feel the love yourself.
