Okay, I know J.Crew's IT people are super busy today with the whole "super slow, messed up website" situation. However, someone there really needs to remove this image from their sale section. I cannot help but either laugh or be über-annoyed by its message. ;)
First, the wait is not over. It should really read "the wait has just begun..." as it is still slow to navigate around the section. (Although, I will say that the website is running much faster today than the past few days!) Second, the sale is not better than ever. This sale is one of the worst I have seen, because they keep displaying items we can't even purchase (either because the items are sold out or they are in fact regular-priced items). When a customer does want to purchase something, the checkout is very difficult. :(
All I am saying, is that maybe J.Crew should reconsider the message and put up another one. Something similar to the main page, where they were honest about the current situation. My vote is for it to say, "Whoops! Things are a bit slow, my bad!" :)
What do you think about the sale message? What would you rather see in its place?
