The good news is that Topshop has finally hit the US in internet form, but the bad news is that we still have to suffer the conversion rate. That’s not change, that’s more of the same! So, I guess it’s not really good news.
It’s weird because unlike H&M, which adjusts their prices to make sense with our measly US dollar and our market, Topshop just doubled the pound price. So if a dress is £120.00, then they’re selling it to us for $240. That would be okay if the clothes were actually worth the big bucks, but last time I was in a Topshop, they weren’t! The styles are super cute, but it’s fast fashion, and fast fashion is never worth that much.
Am I missing something? I’m no economist, but it seems like a poor business decision if they plan to compete with stores like Forever 21 and H&M.
