I’ve been trying to sell my son a pair of jeans that I’ve always wanted to buy, but the salesperson at the Gap told me to take them home.
“If you want to get them on sale, we can’t sell them,” the Gap rep told me.
“We can’t even get you the details on the fit and finish.”
“What do you mean you can’t get the details?”
“I’m not selling anything for you.
You’re selling your own brand.”
I’m no fashion expert, but if I’m being honest, the only reason I bought my son the jeans was to show him that it was possible to buy good quality clothes at cheap prices.
When I asked for the details of the fit, the Gap salesperson insisted that I must take it home.
She said she couldn’t sell it to me.
It turns out that there’s a catch.
I’d had a rough go of it selling my son jeans.
He’s not a fashion expert.
The Gap saleswoman who told me that I was selling him the jeans told me she couldn.
After I took the jeans home and looked at them, I found out that the fit was wrong.
What I found was that the jeans fit better than advertised.
My son is now wearing them almost every day.
And the Gap reps were telling me to get him a new pair, not the ones he already has.
They’re also telling me that the clothes they sell are for sale and cannot be returned.
We’re now in the process of looking for a new retailer who will sell the jeans to us, and the Gap representatives are telling me they can’t take them back.
You’d think that if you want your kid to buy a pair, you’d want him to buy the clothes you sell.
But not everyone who wants to sell a pair can be persuaded to do so by the Gap.
There are lots of other reasons to shop at the big box retailers, and you can still get your clothes on sale at smaller retailers like Target, Best Buy and Walgreens.
For example, Target sells everything from children’s clothes to women’s clothing to shoes.
But you might also find yourself at the bottom of the line at Walmart, Best buy, Home Depot or TJ Maxx.
If you’re a casual shopper, you can also find great deals on designer clothing at your local thrift store.
Sometimes, even the big guys can get it right.
A few weeks ago, I decided to make the biggest mistake of my life.
As I looked for clothes, I saw a Walmart shopper standing on the floor selling a pair in a Walmart thrift.
Not buying anything was the wrong thing to do.
Instead, I took him to the Gap, the first retailer to call and tell him that he’d been sold a pair that I had no idea I had.
While I was shocked, he was very polite and helpful.
That’s the point.
Don’t think you’re the only person out there who has been sold this brand of clothing.
You can be one of the lucky few who actually gets a chance to experience the experience.
