I used to work for a luxury handbag company. People would come into the regular priced store and look around, say they’d wait for it to “get to the outlet”, or brag about how cheap they purchased something at the outlet. Little do they know that the items that they purchased were lower quality handbags that were meant to be at an outlet. The price on the outlet bags tags is a ridiculously high price that was “marked down”. The outlet sold 90-95% bags meant to be at outlets, and 5-10% old bags from the regular priced store. Chances are that bag you’re “waiting to go to the outlet” will never make it there.
