Was it that good? I always thought they were cheap

My mrs bought 4 of these last week from Wembley TK. ideal stocking fillers!

If you are a savvy shopper and know your brands and prices, then TK Maxx has bargains to be had.

To be honest, there was nothing I didn't already know about TK and the outlets.

Been shopping at the outlets for over 15 years and from around 5 years ago have noticed specific 'made for outlet' garments have started to appear. Some shops are good enough to tell you, some don't, and hope to fool you into thinking you got a bargain.

Bottom line, never trust what the price label says. You still have to know your stuff.

A well made item can be any brand. Just because it is designer branded doesn't make it good.

Our local Dobbies sells these under a different brand name for £6. They are brilliant - save loads of space x

TK-Maxx = con men

The programme stated They do have genuine bargains amongst the jumble, to keep people coming back. But the vast majority of the items in there are fake designers, cheap versions of branded items and have RRPs which never existed.

If you just believe the original RRP etc on discounted goods without questioning it then more fool you.

RRP'S should be scrapped, they are a fictional number. But without them, 'sales' wouldnt exist! Argos are the worst culprits, the vast majority of time, the 'sale' price is more expensive than the previous price!

You must have bigger feet than me!

Hot! Amazon are selling this for £30+ & I've been waiting ages for it to come down in price.

Is this in-store only? Can't find it online...

I'll correct myself before someone beats me to it: the one on Amazon is a 9-piece. They also have a 7-piece reduced to £20.

Does seem cheap for this set, Debenhams had it a while back at easily around the 30 odd quid mark, nearly bought it then!

How funny is it that some people allow so called journalists to tell them what to do. They found a couple of items with the wrong RRP, out of how many in TK Maxx?? Oh, and they make some brands themselves, so what? They're not exactly expensive.
Also, who cares if brands manufacture for 'outlet'? It's still branded and cheaper than similar products on the high street.
Most people buy brands, simply so they are seen to be fashionable.
Anyway, the post is about a branded piece of kitchenware, there's this thing you can use called Google, if you want to find RRP'S.
I purchase products based on what I see and how I judge the value, not what Channel 4 tell me!

To be fair, that's not really what they said in the programme. They said 'some' items were own brand etc. Good TV though and worth a watch.

Basically it was a load of 'revelations' that any remotely savvy shopper would know anyway. To be honest anyone who buys something only because they think it is a posh brand or because of an obviously exaggerated RRP don't really deserve much sympathy.

The greater revelation (for me anyway) wasn't with tkmax, but was when they went to the outlet shopping centre. The fact that a lot of stuff being sold in those shops were just made for outlet was obvious, but I thought the fact that they were reproducing the same items that they sell in their main stores but with cheaper material and quality for the outlets was a step too far. That was essentially conning customers into thinking they were getting left over 'last season' items when really they were getting cheap copies of last season's items. It's a silly short term approach too, because customers who purchase the items are going to wear them, wash them and see the lack of quality and forever see that brand as having gone downhill. In other words they'll lose out long term.

The vast majority?? I think you will find it was the tiny minority.

Exactly! Walk into the shop, pick up item, decide if the price shown represents good value and is a price that you want to pay. Who cares if it was reduced from £500 or not, if it is a price you are prepared to pay for that item. Buy it. This was demonstrated by the people who would suddenly pay 3 times the amount for the same polo just because it had a horse on it, nothing to do with the quality of the fabric etc etc.

Don't think you were watching the same show as the rest of us. They didn't say the majority of stuff is fake - not least cause that'd be illegal. Nor did they say they were cheap versions of branded items. They did, as you point out, say some of the RRPs were exaggerated but that's hardly new... and to be honest I'd guess that the only people that didn't already know this are the sort who fall for the sale prices at DFS!

Yes but TK Maxx are putting the RRP on branded products they produce (at least 30 brands that sound 'fancy' to fool the public into thinking they're buying designer brands) then immediately slashing the price by up to 60% putting both prices on the tag!
Glad there are documentaries around to expose companies like this.
Incidentally I did occasionally shop at TK but won't be doing anymore.

This is £16.99 in TKMaxx Blackburn. So maybe not national or a misprice at OP store or Bburn

Even Amazon were guilty of incorrect RRP prices in the Black Friday sale - bottom line is don't trust RRP prices and go with your market knowledge of what something would usually sell for.

This is made harder by the "made for outlet" part of the show, where they showed that they were clearly replicating a previous piece and in many instances, at a lower standard to the original. This might not just be limited to clothes.

In the US, many outlet stores label when something is made for outlet but equally, the show displayed that asking the question about the goods on sale revealed refreshingly honest answers. Don't be afraid to ask.

This was in my TKMaxx in Colliers wood, they also had the 3 bowl version for £7.99 (Large mixing bowl, small mixing bowl and juicer) which was the one I plumped for ... have some heat.
