Hi, all. Talbots has now marked down the sale items to 40% off sale prices. The prices ARE as marked online, not 40% off the marked price.
Sadly, along with the lowered prices is something I have never seen at Talbots before: A little note stating "FINAL SALE" once the item is in your cart.
I IMed a rep, and indeed, sale items purchased with this marker are not returnable or exchangeable. I am shocked! The rep said they are trying to clear stock before fall.
Loyal customers are going to be pissed, and new customers who might be lured in by the lower prices won't want to try something that is on final sale. Now that being said, if the prices are low enough, I am sure items will sell, but they are not cheap enough now for this. Especially with the new pant cuts and sizing that have made it hard to find the right fit.
So, my recommendations for final sale items is always to only buy it if you already know it will work for (ie tried it on in the past, own it in another color, etc.)
I am very disappointed in Talbot's for going the final sale route. What do you guys think about the Final Sale idea? Maybe I am so appalled because this company used to take returns forever, no questions asked. Ah well, more money in the pocketbook for now.
As always, thanks for reading!!
