I hate even posting this... because I love Coach. Coach has been "my thing" for years.... and I HATE HATE HATE being negative. However, I am totally and utterly disappointed in COACH right now. Why are the new bags going to outlet? (for those of you who got an EXCELLENT DEAL-- CONGRATS!!!) But, there are many of us who paid full price (or close to it) for some of these bags. This is NOT good business AT ALL. Why should I shop at a boutique now? Honestly? The bag I pay full price (or nearly so with PCE) will be deeply discounted within a few DAYS. I can't shop at an outlet (it is nearly 4 hours away) and I really don't like eBay... I am totally upset with Coach right now... and it honestly hurts. I Coach... I have always been a Coach girl. And, now I feel they have completely failed me. Part of me says wait to see if they do it again... and then make a move. And part of me says to move on to something else. But nothing else strikes me the way a Coach product does. Well--- Chanel... but I am a teacher. Not gonna happen---- EVER. I'd buy ONE bag A decade. ush: And at that price-- I'd be afraid to "use" them. I am just sad and upset. Thanks for listening--- vent here if you need to.
