Did Anyone Notice Slinky TS Yesterday?
I am not s huge Slinky fan. I personally find most of the garments to be rather matronly for my taste however, I understand many people love the brand. Anyway, it appears the last two hour show was canceled. I wonder if TS, didn’t do so well. I’ve only seen HSN, yank a TS once before with a chef with a copper pan. His demos were a disaster and the poor guy clearly needed assistance. Anyway just wondering if anyone else noticed.
I took a chance on Slinky TS and it was a mistake. Sizing says 29″
inseam. My inseam is 28″ but 29 can work too. This item came with a 301/2 inseam, much too long. Now I have to decide send it back and be out approximately $10 or keep it and throw out the pants and just use the tank and jacket for $49.99 If I cannot count on info being correct I cannot keep wasting money. I have been buying Slinky for years so this change in quality makes me sad.
I did notice prices are going up and quality is going down. I always bought Slinky but lately I found the material is not as good as it use to be – thin, less generous etc. I did buy the TS but if it’s as flimsy as the last item I purchased from Slinky I’ll pass on Slinky from now on. They’re only hurting themselves by compromising their quality.
Skingirl13, I have been a fan of Slinky for many years for a multitude of reasons. I must agree with you that the TS didn’t seem to go over very well although I don’t have a clue why except for the increased S&H. I noticed a lot of items aren’t going over too well since the price increase on many items and the huge S&H increase. We no longer get 50% off when purchasing more then one item and now there’s an additional $.50 charge tacked on to the normal $3.00 charge. Let’s not forget some items are now $5.00 or more to Ship. I did splurge on Slinky but, that was a one time splurge. I think the PTB should note that raising prices dramatically and no coupons was the main cause of the decline of JCPenney. They’ve been fighting like crazy to get their popularity back and are flooding the customer base with coupons but I’m not sure it’s even working. I’ve been with HSN for many, many years and I’m sad this is happening but, as a senior, I will spend my disposable income elsewhere.
Sorry for the dialogue but I guess I needed to say it. Thank you for listening.
Yes, I understand. We need to vent sometimes. With Joy and Iman’s departure I find myself paying closer attention. I really hate to see Iman’s fashions go. Buy outs are hard and you’re right the shipping fees have caused me to buy less.
