I’ve spent $700 on a few things in my life. My unlocked iPhone, a few well-loved bicycles, as well as my IKEA sofa cost seven bills.
Initially when i first spied the massive amounts of Canada Goose Sale around Toronto I needed no idea the down-filled, fur-trimmed parkas boast such sizeable prices. With everyone wearing the Canadian-made coat, I figured the price was affordable.
Ends up only snowbirds with deep pockets are able to afford to sport this popular outdoor brand on their own wings. Are these jacket wearers getting goosed? Or maybe there real value behind the Canada Goose brand?
It’s challenging to put a cost on staying warm. I would know. Being a Canadian that has lived in Ottawa, Toronto, Vancouver, and BC’s Okanagan Valley I’ve experienced all kinds of cold.
The worst type of cold will be the a sense of the wet windchill biting your bones while awaiting a bus. So while expecting budget transit in Toronto, I asked Canada Goose parka wearers why they bought a $700 coat.
Everyone knows that Canada Goose parkas never go on discounted, therefore the brand isn’t trying to race to the bottom when you are the most affordable coat in the marketplace. If you want cheap stuff g0ose in China you shop at Walmart. If you need a Canadian-made coat, then maybe there’s a value to spend.
Also, allegedly selling a less expensive Goose-like knockoff is getting Sears sued for trademark infringement – so consumers need to buy the genuine article to stay toasty warm.
The Canada Goose Jacket Sale sale to U.S. company Bain Capital got a few consumers pecking within the brand staying Canadian-manufactured in Canuckland. Something for future consumers to take into account.
Up to now I’m handling the Canadian chill, but I’d love to know what you guys think.
