OK...

my grandfather gave me 150 at winners but I noticed the receipt was still in the envelope(I think he just plum-forgot)...anyways,I DO need some new threads but winners doesn't usually supply what I want so is it even possible to take the certificate back and get money back?...I can say it was a gift FROM me:confused:

a few people have told me that you can't return a gift certificate

Winners has housewares too... get yourself a down comforter or something...
I very much doubt they'll give you money for the gift certificate.

I don't think so, why not call them?

but you can get some alright stuff there. you just have to look hard and go to the right location. there was a time when they had SNUG stuff....but SNUG is no more:(

after a lil' thought it was a FUCKIN' GIFT from my 78 year old papa!...why would I return it??...man, im greedy:D

actually I got a really nice navy blue comforter from my mom this year...but that's a good idea,some good house stuff:)

the one on queensway had a really nice stussy jacket a few months back, doubt it's there still but they do have the best clothes from the ones ive been visiting lately so maybe I'll save it for when im that way

nope... when you purchase something with a gift certificate, they normally note that on the receipt. Instead of saying cash and the amount... it willl say gift certificate and the amount.

I found alot of Energie and Sixty at the local Winners. Sick brands. They've got good stuff. Give it a chance first.

depends which winners you go to.

in toronto the one at college and yonge actually has some good stuff. however, it depends when you go and shop there. obviously any time around christmas the store would be wiped out of the good stuff. but give it some time and hit the store.. i am sure you will find some decent stuff (labels).
I got a couple of ralph laurent pants and some other nice shirts that cost me a lot less. anyways, good luck.

Guess, Buffalo, Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger all very common in Winners, wherever you go.

Rarer, but wicked finds I found:

Diesel
Energie
Sixty
Mooks
Pusche
4You
Zegna
Zegna Sport
Ben Sherman
Stussy
FCUK

I'm always in for a surprise everytime I go to my local winners. Find one that consistantly delivers good clothes, and it'll be your first stop for clothes shopping, if any of the brands above appeal to you.

to me the label matters less.. as long as the clothes look okay and they are comfortable.

i can buy a 400.00 diesel jacket and look like a thugh and feel uncomfortable. Or go to the gap and buy a 150.00 jacket look a bit better and be more comfortable.

anyways.

Yeah, but I find some labels fit alot nicer and have hipper designs.

If I found a shirt that I just liked the look of, I'm not afraid to go get it tailored. But if I find a shirt by a label that has consistantly made shirts that fit me well, it saves me a trip and a few bucks.

i love winners. you need to be a digger, but if you have some fashon foresight shopping at winners can result in serious shopping coups.

yeah winners!

(and yeah me being on vacation from winners until january 6!)

but i don't know the answer to the gift certificate question.

my guess would be you can't return a gift certificate for cash.
and why would you want to? winners has great stuff...you just need patience and time...look through all the stuff! you'll find stuff! go first thing wednesday or friday mornings....stores get deliveries on tuesdays and thursdays so all the good stuff is out the next day.

think about the area and the demographic of the market around a specific store, and labels/brands suiting that demographic will be at that location.

What's with all these people wanting to return gift certifates.

Dood, don't you have any friends and shit? Use it for home stuff. They have pots and pans. Hoodies for any kind of guy. And lots of linens. I mean, $150? I can use that for jeans, a pillow, a shirt and a nice TP5 hoodie.

Or put it up for sale it in the buy and sell forum.. at a discount.

Like 10 bucks off the face price or something.. someone will buy it.

I just used some gift certificates at Sherway Gardens . . . if you purchase something for $40 with a $50 certificate, you get the rest back in change.

metropolis?

what kind of store is that?


150.00 of clothes isn't that bad IMO...and seriously.. is not like winners only has shitty stuff. They have some nice stuff too IMO.
