Consumers Beware the Discounter
If you thought you were getting the same product or quality at an outlet store as you receive at a regular retail store, you have been misinformed. The biggest offenders are Winners, Marshals, Home Sense and all those dollar stores. They may have started out selling overstocks, but now 90% of the goods or more never were available for sale at a regular retailer. The same applies to discount fabric stores and discount online retailers. The word is buyer beware. It is sounds like it is too good to be true, it probably is. Go with a retailer, online or storefront, that you trust. After all, you put a lot of time and effort into your sewing.
