A couple of weeks ago, my husband and I went shopping at a Coach outlet store. While we were shopping, a couple of women were buying a lot of handbags and accessories. These women, however, weren’t buying for themselves. They were resellers.
A couple of weeks ago, my husband and I went shopping at an outlet shopping center. While we were there, we decided to go to a Coach Outlet store. While shopping, a sales associate handed us a coupon. The store was having a sale where you could get half off your entire purchase.
Aer the sales associate gave us the coupons we looked around the store. I was browsing handbags and my husband was looking at wallets. Many of the products were already offered at discount prices. For example, I recently saw a $99 cosmetic bag on sale for $79 which would have only costed $39.50 with the half off coupon. So, the bags were pretty cheap.
When we finally decided what we we’re going to get, we went to pay. The line wasn’t very long but there was a woman in front who had a lot of handbags and accessories. She had about 10 handbags and about 15 – 25 wallets. There was another woman with her who had about that many bags and wallets as well.
It was pretty obvious what they were buying them for. Even the cashier knew what they were doing. These women weren’t buying the bags for themselves. They were resellers and they were buying the bags to sell them online for more than what they paid.
The bags are already on discount and then you get half off with the coupon. The bags may be old styles but they still sell. I see these items quite often on eBay and other resell sites. Items that are old or from previous collections are often sold online for more than what was paid for them.
Now, it’s not bad that these women are buying things and selling them for more tha now what they paid. That’s what businesses do. Brands make products and you pay more than what it costs the brand to make it.
You can, however, get a better deal by going to a Coach outlet store. You can get the same items you see on resell sites and pay much less. These items are already offered on discount and you can get half off with the coupon.
So, what do you think? Should these women be buying handbags and reselling them online? Let me know in the comments below. Also, don’t forget to subscribe to get new posts sent directly to your inbox and follow me on Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat.
