  • Disney Vault 28 turns 1



    A year ago this single location opened, with virtually no advertising support & a seriously-lacking website, and has contributed over $2 million in sales.

    If you've visited the store and/or purchased anything there, let's hear from you. And if you haven't and/or despise on principal let's get those closure predictions updated.

      Yikes! $2M at one location!? At last it's good knowing that $0 of it was from my wallet.

          I got a Skeleton Dance sweatshirt. I love it, even though it was like $90. Seriously though, where else are you going to get a Silly Symphony sweatshirt???

          Where's that thread where a ton of people predicted its closure last year???

              Well, if it has merchandise with characters that are not commonly found in every DL/WoD shop -- DL's have Princesses, Tinkerbelle, Peter Pan, Grumpy, Pooh and pals, pirates, Skellington -- then of course it will do well. There is a market being highly ignored in DL, as the shops people have to sell what is demanded the most.
              $90 for a sweatshirt prices me out, though.

                I can't believe it lasted this long and actually contributed that much in sales. All I can say is, they've got great sales reps.

                    I picked up an Arribas Bros Beer Glass with "Vault 28"
                    engraved on it ~ thinking this store would go the way
                    of Club Disney, The Disney Club, etc. I also purchase
                    a Vault 28 men's shirt, but it's one of those super tight,
                    super small, super thin material with crappy quality ~
                    so I returned it.

                    Most of the merchandise is ridiculously high priced ~
                    even when comparing "Disney" prices to the real world

                    I figure for about $2 million in sales, all they need to
                    sell is about a hundred of those latex plastic doggy
                    toys without the squeeker, of either the Cheshire
                    Cat or Runaway Brain Mickey.

                    The service in the store, that I experienced, shortly
                    after opening, was terrific. Unfortunately the
                    merchandise, well, that was craptastic.

                      I'm not sure whether $2 million is a lot or not, relative to what else could be there.
                      Sure seems like a lot, though, at first glance.
                      Or, it's $5,500 of sales per day, on average. Or 61 sweatshirts. Those don't seem like a lot, but I know nothing about retail.

                        Only thing I bought in there was a 10.50 pair of Tinkerbell earrings. There is less Disney stuff in there than the first time I went there. I wish there was more Disney stuff and less stuff you could find at other stores.

                          The things are dreadfully overpriced, but I love the store. I have bought a few things from there.

                            Like ^ said, $75 for a shirt is over-priced.

                            I've been in to this store before, don't think I will ever go back.

                              I gave it 6 months. It's filled with expensive crap. It's not even good quality. I see better quality at target..more money than brains comes to mind.

                                $90 isn't really a lot for a sweatshirt.

                                Anyone been to Bloomingdales? Nordstroms? Even the generic Nordstrom brand sweatshirts are $100+. Lacoste polo shirts are at least $80.

                                Open up the pursestrings people...lol.

                                  I have no problems opening of my purse strings, but not for the poor quality crap they are hocking in there.

                                    To each their own. Some would say that a designer sleeveless hooded t-shirt is poor quality crap, and some shell out $400 for one. If its still open, then obviously there are people there who believe it's worth it.

                                    Either way...$90 is not a lot for a sweatshirt.

                                      I never said it was. I have spent that for my daughters clothes. One of her sweatshirts last year was $100.00,. but it was not poor quality. I'm not impressed with anything in that store. I will not buy anything from there, but that doesn't stop anyone else from doing it.

                                        What exactly makes the clothing poor quality? The stitching, the cut, the fabric? Where is it made? Is it not durable? How would you know any of this if you don't buy anything from there?

                                        You can say you dont like something. but if you are going to call it 'poor quality crap' you should have some experience to back that up.

                                        ...just saying.
