Look, if you're interesting in something, mention my name or look for me near the back (I'm the one the gold shirt) and say the password "redflag" and I'll hook you up.

I think sites like Wayfair killed these companies because they don't have as much overhead costs to pay managers and store rentals etc.bengoldenberg wrote: ↑Nov 6th, 2018 12:50 pmFinally the Bombay company is biting the dust. They have sold overpriced poorly made products for years. Thanks to Alibaba people have cut out the middle man while purchasing poorly made knickknacks. Either way the crappy sale of 20-40 percent off is on. Meaning the slightly less crappy sale of 30-40 will start in a few weeks. I have never purchased an item from Bombay that hasn't broken.

I bought a clothes horse, a watch caddy and my sister bought a large bed back in the day. All fell apart. None were cheap. My mother once bought me a duvet from their clearance section. Original price $399Sypsy wrote: ↑Nov 6th, 2018 1:07 pmI'm curious.
What have you purchased from them? Did you buy decorative knick knacks? functional knick knacks? furniture?
My mom's gotten a few decorative things from them at most, I don't really recall what happened to them though.
To me they were too exotic for my tastes. They wanted to make it look like someone travelled to india or eastern asia and brought stuff home.

You're right, Wayfair is a better example than Alibaba. The problem is the quality. They are selling crappy Wayfair quality stuff and selling it like it's high end. Other stores like Stuctube / Ikea manage to sell decent quality for much less and still turn a profit. Bombay is more like Pier 1. Although I feel like the Pier 1 quality sort of justifies the price - but not really.

Actually I posted this first thing in the morning and I searched through hot deals first. It wasn't posted yet. Not sure why it says 5pm. Also what better description do you need. Bombay Company going out of business. 20-40 percent off. There is no link. It's a statement of fact.

It is not a site! It is a chain of stores. I went in and they said all of them were closing. There is no link. I took a photo and the resolution on my phone is too high to upload to RFD. I didn't care enough to waste time resizing it.
