Holt Renfrew

Do you know if Holt Renfrew is more expensive than boutique or other stores like Leone?

I know they do carry expensive brands, but I'm just wondering if their pricing for bags is higher than other stores for the same product.

Thanks

He's asking if the same product at holt renfrew is more expensive then other stores. Eg. would a LV Neverful be more expensive at holts compared to say the lv store. As far as I remember with somethings are the same and others are not. This was with some gucci bags I was looking at so it's best for you to personally go into check or call the stores yourself.

it's pretty close, smaller boutiques have more room to haggle though.

if anything PC and the lv store etc are pretty close together so you can check them out within an afternoon

I think PC refers to Pacific Centre, which is where Holts is.

Leone is more expensive than Holts... I find the service at Leone better, but they carry different brands mostly anyways.

if you care about the marked up prices then order online

I thought Leone and Holts both carry Prada? But I guess everything else is different...
Do if you know Leone have good lineups of handbags? How big is their store?

Anyways...I don't want to order online because there are so many fake ones out there, even though they say "authentic" most of them aren't.

yes they both carry prada, which was what i meant by mostly. for example leone has dior while holts has dolce. And even though both stores carry some of the same brands, the items are different. I just find that leone has more selection for each brand. It is quite big in vancouver standards, about the same size as harry rosen in PC. If you are looking for handbags though, then I would definately check Leone first because it has more exclusive brands in Vancouver standards, such as Chanel. the prices will definalely be higher than online a bit, but you get to make sure it is authentic and get to see it up close.

edit: actually leone mark prices up quite a bit lol. prada shoe costed 655, vest costed 685, dior jeans 655, shirt 460 without tax. You get the idea lol

Check saks or neiman marcus if you're looking online. There's a few other sites from Europe that sell legit designer purses but you will get dinged with taxes/customs.

sorry for such noob question...what's the approx starting price for Prada handbags?

Also, I can not tell the difference between real/fake so I need to know where would be the safest place to shop..do Holts and Leone both sell only real deal...right?

what do you mean by Leone marking up price high? Do they sell higher than MSRP?

This is American website, but I guess it will be more expensive in Canadian $...right?

Prade purses range in price, here's two links to give you an idea;

http://www.saksfifthavenue.com/main/...CSLOT=BR-Prada

http://www.neimanmarcus.com/store/ca...rId=cat5890735

Holts and Leone's don't sell fakes and what he means by mark up is say a purse costs $350, the markup might be a extra $100 or something. And Prada.com doesn't ship to Canada and it's usually more expensive buying directly from the designers site but a lot of designers now have their own e-shops and have matched their prices with other online stores.

the last time i shopped at leone, i noticed they had a different set of stuff per brand name. there are some pradas you can find in only holt, and some only in leone. i like the selection better in leone just for the sake that not everyone wears the same thing.

jah is right, check out saks or neiman marcus. i know they ship to canada.
for a european selection, check out www.raffaello-network.com/raffties
some of them are higher in price, but some of their designs and models don't even reach north america

If you can't tell real from fake you might as well go for fake...

so Leone has better selection?
I have never been to neither of them, but which one is bigger?

I did some online research about them and yea...people are saying Holt's customer service isn't that great.

I'm not really looking to purchase online as it might take long time and people are saying they got $300+ charged as import duties and stuff.

for me i felt leone had a better selection. if you are taking about actual store size/spaciousness and floor area, then Holt's would be bigger and i've always gotten great customer service from there.
