    I feel like for some of the winners stuff needs to be name brand to get an accurate compare at price. The stuff they could be finding could be discontinued and so anywhere you find it not from the brand could be cheaper bc it's on sale everywhere else

    I guess I don't understand how people don't know. I've done the research prior to shopping. So I know when I'm actually getting a deal. These people who go blindly shopping and don't know deserve to ripped off.

    what do people expect! well I work for a high end store. people won't buy at a high end because most people can afford it. they don't care about quality all they care about is the name. no matter how you look at it, it's always about brand then quality. we had 20 retail close because people couldn't care less about quality.

    Nobody buys clothing "to last" anymore. Even people buying at the retail store are typically wearing things for one season and buying new the next.
