The Watford one seems much more up to date than other stores though (I believe their head office is there anyways) and a lot of the garments, expensive ones especially had new electronic tags on them. I'm not sure whether price swapping or trying to remove them is such a good idea with those on them.

They look a bit more hitech than that.

To be honest though, TK Maxx is becoming so much more well known that it used to be. It's now in lots of towns and advertised on tv as "Designer brands Cheap" so it's not suprising that they are going to want to protect their gear a bit more.

Then buy both the items, they'll take the tags off at the cash desk, swap the prices over at home at return the cheap coat with the big price Smiling
