I don't feel like they are milking "buy Canadian" or are you more upset at OP's comments?spiralspirit wrote: ↑ I don't care about this retailer at all - but I despise people selling imported clothes under "Support Canadian etc!", because those companies aren't supporting canadian anything either.
Sell your product, compete in the market based on the quality of your product, but don't pretend to differentiate yourself as "Canadian" when you're importing the same cambodian/chinese/vietnamese factory work as everyone else but pretending everyone else needs to be patriotic and support your "canadian" brand.
They're patronizing and pandering to "buy canadian" while not buying canadian themselves. Their business strategy is the same as walmart, but they get to pretend to be moral because "they're canadian".
I'm not defending their imported clothing but they also employ thousands of Canadians. If they go out of business everybody loses. I'm a big fan of their clothing (especially their chinos) when it's on sale but don't feel regular price is worth it.
Nothing wrong with Walmart clothing but you can't compare the two quality wise.
Would hate to see my go-to clothing stores shut down, I find it difficult to purchase clothes online without trying them on.
