…but we’ve now got our own “Mills” in Canada….we’ve got…drumroll please….Vaughan Mills.
There are several stores that are at all the Mills – American Eagle, Children’s Place, Nike Factory Store. Unfortunately, this is pretty much where the similarities end.
There is no: Banana, Gap, Carters, Oshkosh, Bath and Body Works, Ann Taylor….
And where are they, you ask?
They all pulled out at the last minute. crap.
Well, the good news is that i was able to find some good deals on Canadian clothing – i got an amazing suit at Femme de Carriere and some great shirts and sweaters at Tristan for really cheap…but we already have Femme and Tristan outlets in the city. I only need to drive to Colussus and we have an entire strip of Canadian outlets. Who needs more of those?
I WANT MY AMERICAN STORES!! AND MY AMERICAN DEALS!!
to put it bluntly, canadian sales suck! at my Old Navy at the promenade mall, I watch as a sweater i want to buy for Emily starts at $48 dollars. In a few weeks, it goes down to 34.99. Great deal! then i watch as a few weeks later, it goes all the way down to $29.99. skippy! hooray! all Canadians race out to buy the sweater at the $30 dollar steal! But, you have to act quickly, because usually, by the time it reaches the cheap price, there are only sizes 3-6 months left, and then you are kicking yourself for not buying it when it was $34.99.
now, had this been my Old Navy in Milwaukee, it would have likely gone like this. The sweater would start at $39. it would stay on the shelf until it goes down to $19.99, then $12.99, then $9.99. then i would pick it up for $6.99, and I’m happy because they still have the sweater in every size.
Do you see the difference?
