Where you should go shopping for New designer shoes
Know what you’re buying! Clothing, like anything else, is sold at discount for many reasons. Let’s go over some terms: First-quality means brand-new merchandise that has no flaws. It may be reduced in price as a sales promotion, because it’s overstock, or because it’s left over from a past season. Discontinued is self-explanatory; but again, these items are new and most are perfectly good.
Second-quality ( seconds, irregulars, IR ) means new clothes that have some slight mistakes in their manufacture or that have been damaged in shipping. Often these blemishes are negligible. A reputable store will call your attention to the problem with a sign, or a piece of masking tape on the damaged spot.
