relli?...im not much of a roots shopper..but it does luk like not alota ppl go der anymore..use to be big back in da day..i guess cuz it was \"canadian\":
Roots is known to be "CANADIAN!!" and the clothes are made in china?
I used to love that outlet... it's sad to hear it's not doing so great.
I bet because the Canada Olympic Committee didn't choose them for their national clothing represent, they lost all their moooola!
wow really? :blink: my friend used to work there and she would keep going on and on about how nice they were..but like i said..she USED to work there..lol
REALLY? I've never been there but I always wanted to go there, now i'm kinda like. yea no thx. and is it realli made in china because that's sad
That's sad... I used to go to the outlet but not soo much now. It's made in china now...that sux.
Yep...Roots has totally went downhill. Like everyone's been saying, they seem to be having an identity crisis.... Made in China??
First, they charged quite a bit for a hoodie or sweater, but that's b/c it's made in Canada. Now it's made in china and they are still rather expensive to purchase!
yup...i used to go...for the last couple of years, i didn't go there because of bad service and messiness.
LOL yeah!! they chose...zellers...right? LOL
We'll if you think about it, it isn't their fault. Everything is getting cheaper. Bootlegger use to have good quality jeans and since Sirens and other stores starting having $10 shirts and cheap jeans other companies who had high quality stuff now uses cheap quality fabrics to make the prices cheaper or else who is going to buy? Maybe the rare occational people who can afford it, but they wouldn't make any money that way. So I don't blame them. Though I don't really like buying stuff made in China either. And plus we pay people to make clothes at a minimum wage of $8 and if so the clothes must be sold at a higher price. So they get China to make it a minimum of like $1.50 an hour approx. So it's cheaper
Naaah, it was The Bay, I think. I see a lot of the Olympics stuff there now LOL.
No. Its HBC, which is The Bay, Zellers and Homeoutfitters.
And it makes sense because they are Canadian stores, and roots isn't as popular as it used to be.
I dont see what's so funny about zellers or the bay.
they bring in more money then roots does so it makes sense the olympics would choose them.
Some brands will go downhill as time wears on. Before Benetton, ESPRIT, S. Oliver, and Big Star jeans were the hottest thing around lol. Newer & fresher brands will be introduced yearly. Brands from overseas like the UK will be introduced here too, like Bench & Golddigga. I wore Bench & Golddigga gear when no one in 604 even heard of them! Now everyone knows what they are. inch:
When it first opened I bought all kinds of stuff there. But lately I found it's just kind of junky.
I dont' even go to the store in metro now... I use to go there like several yrs ago but the brnd is just not popular anymore and plus their cmothing is expeinsive.
