Look out for counterfeit dresses!
There is a lot more activity at the store as the proms are all next month. Over the weekend, I spoke with a couple of young ladies who showed me images of prom dresses they had ordered but not received from online retailers. When I saw the images, I also saw the prices and became suspicious. I then looked at the site name and looked the companies up.
Many online prom dress retailers are legitimate sites selling dresses from legitimate designers, as we do with our in-stock inventory. However, whenever I see someone advertising a new dress similar to what the store carries for sale for less than what I can buy it for, I get concerned.
Here are a couple of articles I read over the weekend on clothing scam sites, and it isn't just for prom dresses, but for all sorts of clothing.
You can also google counterfeit dresses and see a whole host of disasters. All I can say is to be careful when buying a dress online, that they have a U.S. Phone support number if you have questions, and if you see a dress online for $90 when a brick and mortar retailer charges $378, its OK to dig a little deeper to see why the online vendor is charging so much less.
