Re: PRICING ON FASHIONS AND SHOES LATELY...

The prices have risen dramatically recently.  I know brands like Denim & Co have been around a long time, so obviously prices arent going to be the same, but the basic pull-on pants have gone from around $15-18 to around $35.  They just arent worth that price, plus the inconstency in sizing generally is terrible.  I always look at the sizing chart online, but still find items are too big or too small.  The Q is obviously looking at profit first nowadays!!

I shop elsewhere.  Items coming out of China and they are way overpriced.

Any here ever learn about Spinerettes?  About the petoleum based colors and liquids to make polyester - it costs pennies and I mean pennies to make yards of polyester.  So why the criminal mark ups for the average looking clothing?

The markups are because you are getting "QVC's exclusive designer who goes to London and Paris to bring back the latest styles." I don't wear polyester clothing even when it's called microfiber.

You are really not getting a bargin on clothing and shoes at the Q any more, I think what keeps people coming back is the easy pay and being able to shop from home, also the liberal return policy. I would not shop at the Q if these policies were discontinued.

It's not just the Q's pricing though.  I've noticed higher prices for clothes at Soft Surroundings, Chico's and JJill's, too.  At my small local Macy's it seems like the quality has gone down.

I LOVE Talbots but rarely buy anything unless it's on sale or some type of promotion.

 

Most of the shoe sites offer free s/h and returns. 

 

Q has a lot of competition and needs to listen to their customers.  The last few items I've bought from HSN and Evine were free s/h.

I agree. I can buy the same or better quality at Kohl's. With coupons, discounts, etc, I can do that at Walmart prices.

 

Some of their better quality things I like are, Skechers, Jockey, Olga, and Gold Toe socks.

 

They also carry some One World items (popular casual line on Evine) and Dana Buchman leather bags are nice.

 

If I need something higher end, I like Dillards sales.

I've seen a lot of the brands the Q sells at good Will and local thrift stores. I'm not really impressed with their quality or "style" which is kind of dowdy for the most part imo.

I can see people who cannot get out to malls being their biggest customers.

Give me Target any day.

Re: PRICING ON FASHIONS AND SHOES LATELY...

Almost all their clothing had a price increase to account for the lower shipping. The push to get the Q card and have easy pay is the other tactic to get the customer to bite. It is my responsibility to make good choices and not let sales hype influence me. However, i have noticed that when all the fast talking starts, some hosts have stated the price as the one easy pay amount without saying "on easy pay" or as the "get it home and try it" price, which they were careful to do in the past. It is especially noticeable when I am not watching the screen but just listening. It has happened too frequently to overlook as a misspoken one off. Please QVC, retain your integrity.
