    According to Karen at Paul Stuart, Chicago, we blew more business through their shoe department in 3 days than they had seen in the last 3 months.[​IMG]

    That is very impressive! [​IMG]

    I called, a guy picked up, asked if I heard about this from the internet and said they would call me back [​IMG] where's the love??

    Give them a break, I don't think their little store is set up to handle a feeding frenzy.
    Also, most of employees in the outlet store are from upstate I think, so they are not used to the busy pace NYC retail during sales season.

    Def. gives me more chance to go to woodbury whenever I go upstate.
    I hope they don't think I am the guy who is responsible for their misreable busy weekend , and put me on their shit list.

    I think eBay is going to have a glut of PL & BL merchandise soon - you know there are fair few lurkers here too! [​IMG]

    I'm just glad I've sold all my own recent stock already! I don't think I'll ever be able to sell any PL/BL again, given this outlet's opening! [​IMG]


    Hope to see some merchandise here on the Buying and Selling forum. I called just an hour earlier and a guy told me the sales that's in charge of the inventory has left for the day and advised me to call in tomorrow 9am EST.

    You probably did half of the damage!

    I didn't order any, but in all honesty do you guys think that this one store could actually destroy the eBay market?

    I have, however, noticed that prices fetched for things for sale have decreased overall =(

    The three RLPL suits that I got for $450/per had retails of the following:

    $3995
    $4195
    $4995

    That's almost $14k in suits for $1400. Given my experience with the fit and quality of the brand, a chance I was more than willing to take sight unseen.

    def. destory the market for Holdfast [​IMG]
    Given that 25% off sale is not on all year round, the price would be in line of what Ebay sells.
    But , if the rumor becomes the truth and Polo starting sending EGs to this outlet store, then that would be ridicoulous.

    i called the store 15 minutes after chorse123 posted about his navy 38R he put on hold. I inquired about other black label stock. They had 2 suits, neither of which interested me at that point.

    I called back about an hour later to expand my search to Purple Label suits and Black Label pants. By then Denise said a lot of the 38's had sold.

    I ended up getting a pair of black label pants only. I've been on the hunt for an all season mid grey pair and they happened to have one in my size.

    Not nearly a deal the suits were/are, but I am happy I've finally found a pair of medium gray pants in black label.

    Moral of the story, there was definitely a run on the store imo and that their stock might have gotten depleted.
