Oct 10th 2010 2:12PM gucci knows nothing about those discounted stored because places like dsw do no buy there designer brands from the designers. it is brought from the department stores, and other high end stores that can't sell all that they brought from the designers. its simple. if i am Bergdorf goodman, and i ordered from gucci 100 pair of shoes and i can not sell all 100 pairs to my customers, i'm gonna sell the rest that i have to the discount stores. They will cut the price down to half or more, and that's how you get designer from dsw. thats why gucci did not know anything about dsw selling their products, its was because gucci wasn't the ones who sold them to them.
