That's kinda funny that someone would try to scam Homesense with Dollarama's products. I was fooled, I thought Homesense was selling Dollarama overstock for a minute there.

There is a thread on Reddit on this. They concluded it is most likely FAKE, as the Homesense sticker is too outdated and appears to have been removed and re-pasted

I worked for Winners back in the early 2000s. Outdated computer system. I think it still is. If one wanted to scam TJMaxx companies, it wouldn't be very difficult. The thrift store mentality of the company means the inventory system is nonexistent. Just look at that stupid sticker. No description other than department number, category code, etc. I recall I had to open up a binder and manually check exactly what the numbers corresponded to in order to even guess if it was accurate, and even then, there was no real description.

Department code would be as simple as: housewares
Category code: small appliances
Type: coffee

Clothing can be as simple as:
Dept: women's fashions
Cat: tops
Type: long sleeve name
