    I apologise in advance if this is a silly/dumb question.

    But I was out shopping today and went to shops like H&M, Topman, River Island and Next. I noticed that the men's department is always on the second floor.

    Why?

    Good spot, i never noticed that, but its true.

    I dont know why tbh. Saves you females from walking further to get to your clothes!
    Maybe thats what it is?
    They know ladies love clothes shopping so they the womens stuff on the bottom floor so that when they look in, they see the clothes and are enticed into the shops?

    That may have something to do with it!
    Because they always put stuff right in the entrance way dont they!

    The lower footfall and retail turnover in men's departments accounts for their less favoured position.
