Counterfeits, Knock-Off’s, and Saving Money
We all like saving money, especially in the times we are experiencing now. And not all of us can afford to buy the name brands of clothing and other items, so we may go with “knock-off” brand, a perfume with a similar scent, shoes that look the part, etc.
Retailers know this as well, and how we as consumers think. Primark in particular realised this, and have created lines of clothing that are similar to more expensive brand names.
