No don't know why stores are dong this but I can try and take a guess.

Agnes B. Customer Service is shocking BTW, I contacted them 3 times, over 3 consecutuve days to ask why the garment I was interested in was not being offered in the Sale on the UK site – I just got an automated response but no actual reply. They just refused to answer or acknowledge my legitmate question. Of course the item sold out so I wrote them a really 'furious' message, here is their reply:

We thank you for having contacting us.

We apologize but we are not able to apply a discount on the dress.
Our subsidiary in the UK are independant from us. Also we have higher level of stock, that enable us to apply different discount rates during the sales period of time.
We thank you for the interest you have for agnès b. Thank you for your confidence, should you have any other question do not hesitate to be in touch.

Best regards,
Customer Service Agnès B.


Note: it was not a dress.

Now the UK Stores may very well be franchaises (there are only 2 stores in London now plus a concession in Fenwick), but all of the website stock ships out of France from the same warehouse. It's all the same stock so there's is no reason not to offer the same discount to UK customers. I should point out this was a T-shirt which was an online exclusive, I could only buy this through the Agnes B's website.

I thought there were EU directives to stop this sort behaviour? It seems not because I've experienced this with lots of other European online retailers. The Corner also sticks out, they seem to have different discount levels for each continent/country, UK would be 30%, Euro 60% and US 80%. They had some BS excuse about having to match the discounts the designer label would offer to local markets. Bottom line is forgot complaining if you want to buy the item because once it goes to these final sale discounts it'll be sold out before you recieve a response.

Matches are another, they are offering way more attractive discounts to US customers before they offer these discounts to the UK. If they are offering free shipping this doesn't make a lot of sense as shipping to the US must cost more.

My guess is there are a couple reasons why this might be happening.

One is that these stores see the US Sales as a growth market, but a competitive one, lot's of other stores competing for the same customers, so by offering high discounts they hope to establish themsleves beore their competitors do so.

Or it's just analytically driven - that their sales data shows UK buyers are prepared to pay more at Sale than their US counterparts, but the problem with that hypothesis is it is self-defeating. Once buyers are offered generous discounts they will expect generous discounts.

Whatever the reason it's infuriating, and these stores do run the risk of just pissing us off to the point that we take our trade elsewhere.

Does the UK still have to follow EU law after Brexit? Are they still phasing it out or can they ignore it entirely?

The UK has yet to Brexit. There has only been a referendum, which resulted in a vote in favor of leaving the EU. But nothing else has happened yet (except a change in government leadership) and an actual Brexit will take years to happen, if it actually does.

thanks!

Yeah, really good prices. Was about to get a Veilance coat really cheap but as usual Visa payment wouldn't work and when I went back to try to pay with paypal somebody had snatched it from my basket.

Edit: Apparently the jacket just got locked in the system for a while when the payment was declined so returned in stock and I now managed to buy it through Paypal.

usual American humour which is not unsurprisingly very funny - probably not aware that the French speak a different language to us Brits and often get lost in translation.
