boutiques in Poland I feel I'm being measured up by the staff.
That is the job of all sales staff they are on Commission.
is it me or does anyone else have the same experience ?
Not really, you tell them you will call them when needed, they back off.
Secondly, I'm used to being able to return items I purchased but it seems that in Poland all sales are final
I have never had a problem returning items in Poland, although not all shops will give a 100% refund,many will give you a credit against a future purchase, if fact I bought my kids sports some shoes last summer while I was in GalMoK they did not like them I took them back to Lacoste and got a credit note and used the credit note a year later for a purchase
when I ask about returns (without cause) they look at me like I'm from mars ?
Malja, if you go into a Polish store and your first question is about returns, they most likely believe you want to use the goods that night and get your money back the following day.
You can also try KLIF shopping mall, they have special shopping evenings every couple of months between 21.00 to 24.00 hrs, it is only open by invitation and many of the outlets use these evenings to clear stock at big discounts.
