A deal made to suit

The downturn has spawned some interesting, possibly even compassionate, promotions from retailers trying to persuade fearful shoppers to open their wallets.
Lose your job after buying a suit from Jos. A. Bank Clothiers Inc. during its current sale and the chain will refund up to $199 of the price of the suit -- and let you keep it.
The sale launched Monday runs through April 9. If you're laid off between April 16 and July 1, and can prove it to the chain, you would qualify for the refund.
"Some people have to have a suit, if they're getting into that interview process," said Charles Andrews, who manages the Amarillo Jos. A. Bank store at 3350 S. Soncy Road.
The good news: No one has needed the refund yet.
