We all know about Kohl's and thier world famous 'sales'. You know they over inflate thier prices on everything in the store then make it all down at 40-60% off and call it a 'sale'.
The other day I needed a decent pair of pants for ds, he was having his 2nd grade concert and pretty much only wears jeans daily. I needed a decent paif or Khaki pants so he would look a little dressier for his show. I walk into Kohl's fully expecting to find a rack of pants marked down 'on sale', but all I found were 'Buy one pair at full price, get the second half off' sales. On ALL thier pants. And 1 pair of pants was $28! Those were the cheapest ones I found. I was shocked! Since when does Kohl's run these sales?? I know I don't shop often, pretty much only when we need something, I was just so disgusted I walked out and went next door to Walmart where I got a pair of khaki pants for $9. They weren't exactly what I was looking for, but they served the purpose.
I was willing to pay around $15-$20 for a pair of pants, but certainly NOT $28. And I only needed the one pair of pants, I wasn't buying one at full price just to get the second at half price. That would run over $40, for 2 pairs of boys pants. I go to TCP and get him pants, esp when they run thier 2/$28 sales. I have had good luck with them and thats what he wears pretty exclusively. I have to tell myself that next time I shop, I need to buy some 'dressier' jeans/khakis, to keep on hand for just such a situation.
