Cretony38: A friend of mine was 'going on' about Penny's, I just ignored him until my GF took me in there and now it's a favorite! The prices were great and the quality was way better than I thought I could afford I'm going back as soon as I can. Igot some great deals!!! I want to look better than if I shop at Walmart, Target or a thrift store.
mr_a: He is right about the pricing schemes. I remember getting dragged to a JCP to shop for new curtains. Well the price is $500, but there is 40% off, then an additional 35% off the already discounted price, than another $30 off.The clerks have no idea the order to take these discounts, which because of simple algebra can give you a very different price. Most of the clerks don't even believe that it matters what order to figure the discounts.In other words the only way to actually find the price of stuff is to buy it and see what the register comes up with.
