Wow that’s interesting… especially that loophole.

What about my mattress tags… is it true I can go to jail for ripping them off?

Wow….that is VERY interesting!!! I didn’t come across any shops that didn’t share the designers info and definitely would NOT purchase a gown from a place like that. What would be their rationale for not wanting you to know the designer info?

^So that you wouldn’t find out who made the gown and buy it somewhere else. That’s what I’ve heard.

Interesting – the first place I looked at dresses was a small upscale shop in my hometown.  I’m not sure if they cut the tag out of the dresses because I couldn’t even touch them – but they would NOT tell my mom and I the designers of any of the dresses.  Even when I asked point blank – who is the designer of this dress- they literally ignored me/pretended they didn’t hear.  It was so odd and it definitely made me sure I did not want to do business with the shop.

I went to many shops like that – they tore out the designer tags.  But unfortunately they would put their own tags on the dresses.  So that’s not illegal then since they found the loophole?  I wish they hadn’t put their own store tags on the dresses, then they could be busted!

Ya I really don’t see how this helps business. I would be turned off if they refused to give me information like that about the dress! So to me, seems like the practice would lose them more buyers.

wow! i wonder if the same goes for here in Canada?

i have been phoning bridal shops galore to find the best deal for the dress i want (basically the gown i have but its wedding dress version) some were willing to give me quotes others not so much. one even went to saying “we do not want to be a part of a price war, and neither does the company who makes the gown you are asking about” well, sorry but the company who makes the dress actually suggested i phone around 😛 and in this economy right now, many brides want the best deal for their dream dress and for their money.

I went to a place in Connecticut – the Bridal Mall – because it’s where my sister got her dress and they have TONS of dresses. I had a very nice sales assistant helping me but the store policy there was to withhold the name of any dress designer/style etc…  I got sneaky when I tried on one that I liked and was able to see the label as she helped me take the dress off but other than that they wouldn’t even leave the dresses in the dressing room alone with me!

Needless to say I didn’t buy a dress there and I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone unless they were in a super rush and wanted something off the rack.

Price comparison isn’t the only reason they do it. There was a shop here that just got shut down, they were cutting out the tags and trying to pass off cheaper dresses as high-priced exclusive designer collections.

They rip the tags out then lie about the designer.  Beware!
