  1. I like to shop in Winners. Every time I just focus on the price which is after discount and I will check the price online immediate. Sometimes I could find the original price but sometimes I couldn't. Sometimes its price is really cheaper and sometimes is as same as some online store like Amazon. Buy or not just base on the quality and the selling price is worth or not.

  2. While I get the sentiment, comparing two completely different items just because they're the same article of clothing and color means essentially nothing. I'd bet anything you could've just as easily bought two different (but same color) pairs of pants from either store and spotted differences like one using a clasp and the other a button… That's how different items work. If they all had the same zipper, pockets, material, cut, feel, button, etc. Then they would obviously be selling one style of pants and nothing more…

  3. FACT: 80% OF ALL GLOBAL PRODUCTS ARE POOR QUALITY AND I NEVER BUY THEM! THE PUBLIC NEEDS TO PYCHO ANALYZE EVERY DETAIL OF EVERY ASPECT OF HOW A PRODUCT IS MADE! TIME TO TAKE DOWN THE CORRUPT RETAILERS!

  4. FACT: SHOP AT TJ MAXX AND MARSHALLS! FORCE MAJOR RETAILERS TO SEND THIER APPAREL TO THESE DISCOUNT RETAILERS AND BRING THE PRICES UNDER $15 (forced lower fair prices)! IF it does not feel of quality or look durable and solid, THEN do not buy it!

  5. You can google compare at pricing while shopping. I do it all the time. Wayfair and Overstock, are the biggest culprit in this scheme. Even Amazon does this.

  6. Wow I learned so much from this documentary today…. I’m big on certain brands and spend my hard earned dollars on the ones I really like… very glad I learned about outlet shopping (coach) … so sad they have you thinking your buying last years styles not a lower quality item…🦋

  7. Best Advice : THRIFT STORES , GOOD WILL AND CLOTHING BANKS. I have a Genuine Jessica Simpson Jacket someone gave me for FREE and my 13 year old daughter had Versache Jeans when she was TWO that cost me 5$ at a thrift store.

    I won't even spend money at department stores. Why buy new when you can get vintage designer for less?

  8. I work at Swarovski and the outlet shops just get the products that we couldn't sell. The only difference is, that the products you buy in the outlet stores are out of date, but the quality is the same.

  9. That's why some highend designer brands they don't open at outlets for a reason. I think when opening at outlet locations, the shops have to go through the contracts with particular outlet factories, that's the way these factories make money. Luxury designer brands keep the quality over quantity, which you never see any sales in most of the highend brands. I'm sure some people will never ever go to outlet again because of the quality issue mentioned in this video.

  10. I think shopping in general is ridiculous! I can see and read through all the gimmicks and marketing strategies. It's appalling to me! This is why I shop Goodwill people do my shopping for me for high-end Goods and I buy them for dirt cheap many of them I find with the tag still attached brand new item never been worn for three or four dollars. Enjoy spending your money
