      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      I first came across Eiseneggar by chance while shopping in Eldon Square, Newcastle. I was waiting for a pair of jeans to be taken up (incidentally, they were French Connection and I bought them for £45 in the sale), and had an hour to kill. I wandered around the shops for a while and stumbled across Eiseneggar (I say stumbled, but how can you miss the luminous orange signs and blaring music?) The shop was claiming up to 90% off men?s and ladies? clothes. I walked in without any intent of buying as I am a bit skeptical about such huge discounts ? and I had never actually heard of Eiseneggar either - most people have heard of brands like Calvin Klein, FCUK, etc etc? but Eiseneggar, well it hardly trips off the tongue. Once inside, I didn?t look at the men?s clothes, as my eye was immediately drawn to the array of denim and casual tops for ladies on display. I had been looking for ages for some ?distressed denim? jeans and jacket and I found some that were exactly what I wanted. Of course I hadn?t planned to buy anything as I said, and I was just about to go and collect my nice newly shorted FCUK jeans?. But I looked at the price and could not believe my eyes. The jeans were £6 and the jacket £8!!! I went to the changing room ?just to see how they would look?. They fitted really nicely and the quality felt really good? so exercising a bit of restraint I decided to opt just for the jeans. I got out my Switch card at the checkout and was informed that they didn?t take cards for under £10? having spent my last 2.15 on a grande latte from Starbuck?s, I decided to take the jacket too and spent a total of £15!!! I had a big grin on my face as I left the shop?. But I was left with a niggling doubt as to the quality of the clothes. Was it just an impulse buy? Was I just overcome by the sheer cheapness?! After collecting my other jeans that had been altered, I went home and inspected my Eiseneggar purchases. I tried them on again and I have to s
      ay, that in my opinion, the quality is excellent, the material is the sort you would expect on more expensive ?labelled? brands and the style is very fashionable. The store had a very good range of fashion in fact. An abundance of denim and casual tops and shirts, as well as sports wear and jackets. There was even more for men than women, and I?m definitely recommending to my boyfriend that he have a look. However, Eiseneggar is very sneaky in the way it sells clothes and as such provokes skepticism among its shoppers. After reading all the opinions about this shop, I would agree that this method of selling looks like a marketing ploy. How can a shop make money when the clothes are so cheap? How can the clothes be so cheap full stop? And the rule that you can only use your credit card over £10 is just a scan to make you spend more (and look at me, it worked!!) The shop itself, although quite small, had a nice wood floor and wooden shelves and metal racks. There were some free standing racks packed with clothes, but overall it was a nice place to be (they could have done without the blasting music though). The staff was utterly unhelpful however, leaving me to try on and put back what I didn?t want, and they couldn?t heat what I was saying above the music! But, I would firmly disagree with those who say the quality of the clothes is ?tatty? or ?cheap?. I have looked closely and I really think that this is good stuff. I like my labels too.. but LOVE a bargain, which is what I feel I have got. And after all, who says that just because you pay more the quality will be good? I have another pair of FCUK trousers that I have worn once and have already had to ?Wonder Web? the hem, and a top from Warehouse that is literally falling apart at the seams after just one wash. So, despite any grumblings I may have about Eiseneggar and its, um, interesting way of selling clothes, I will definitely be going back and recommendin
      g it to my friends. And my personal opinion would be that people who say its chat probably are being a bit snobby. I haven?t heard of Eiseneggar, but who cares? People always compliment my when I wear those jeans. They make me feel and look good. For £15, I challenge you to find something better!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Everywhere you go there seems to be a sale on. I used to work in a shop, where every time we used to have a sale, we used to advertise that we were 'CLOSING DOWN', with tiny letters below saying 'for refit'. This prompted half the elderly population of our town (who's eyesight would have somewhat struggled to have read the 'no we're not really' get out clause) shouting at me asking where they were going to buy their shoes from now... Maybe I should have worn another badge saying 'we're happy to mislead you' as well as the one saying 'we're happy to help'. Since then, I have always disliked sly marketing campaigns which pretend that the customer is getting more than they actually are. Eisenegger is one of them, and boy, they are as sly as they come. For those of you unfamilier with the chain, Eissenegger sell clothes, both for males and females, such as fleeces and tracksuits. Nothing wrong with that of course. The main problem is that there is always 70% of goods in the store. So, you may be asking, why is this a bad thing - surely, this is a good deal? Well, basically, the 70% off offer is all year round. For the past 3 and a half years since I first clapped eyes on an Eisenegger store, it has always had this promotion on. Therefore, you aren't actually getting 70% off at all, but merely the standard price of the goods. Although I'm fairly certain the law states that in order for a sale to be legitimate, the goods must be on sale at the higher price for a particular length of time before they can be deemed as being sale goods, it looks as though this particular chain has managed to get around this technicality, as the red posters are never out of the window. Even so, people who are unfamilier with the name of Eisenegger must be tempted into a store offering such apparently high reductions of all stock, which they will believe is a one-off. When people look at
        something that is advertised as £100 reduced to £30, they think that they've got a bargain and it looks all that more tempting. In reality, the item would never have been sold for £100 anywhere. If the item was advertised as being merely £30 without a sale tag, it wouldn't seem like the deal of the century. Very clever by Eisenegger, but very misleading all the same. The quality of the clothes isn't terrible, but better things can be found for cheaper elsewhere. However, Eisenegger always seems busy in my shopping centre, as visitors exclaim '70% off? Where's my credit card!' as they walk past. In the days of spiraling prices and extreme competition, clothes shops seem only busy when they have their sales, and Eisenegger have nicely cashed in on this. However, this shopper will be always be going elsewhere for some reall bargains.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Eisenaggar is a recently new shop to my home town of Colchester, it sells childrens and adults clothing, footwear and certain accesories. Although the shop sells quite an amount the branches themselves are rather small in size which I find rather dissapointing. So far I've only come across 2 branches, one in Colchester and the other in Chelmsford. Both very small in size. The store with its full name is called 'Eisenegger Klassiker'. so far, I've found the stores very impresive, I've picked up three MEGA bargains, the first was a yellow top with no sleeves, it was a simple but sweet top which I bought for only £4!!! The second was a very simalar top though a little different, same colour and material, just a different design, this was a bargain at £3!!! The third was a gorgeous cream jacket which I picked up for only £14!!! The aim of the store is to make a profit out of what WERE rather exspensive items, but have been reduced by amazing percentages of around 50-75%. Originally the jacket that I bought was a whopping £60 but luckily due to the amazing discount, I got it for £14!!! The clothing is of rather good quality and washes well, some may think the stuff is tacky but I'm sure you'll find like me it is great quality material. The shop is originally a very POSH and EXSPENSIVe store, remember. You can buy clothing in all sizes and is really trendy and fashionable, another great thing is that NEW stock comes in rather regularly and the shelves are always full to the brim. I have never bought footwear from this shop but the products always look interesting, again you can pick up a bargain here and there at amazing discounts. There isn't really much of a selection on the footwear but enough to browse at, one main problem though is because the stores are so small it is practically IMPOSSIBLE to try on shoes as people are trying to squeeze down the tidgy aisles! I simply went to the changing rooms. <
          br> There isn't much of a selction accesories wise, the only things I've ever noticed is a weird and not noticed that much selection of hats, these aren't very popular and you don't see many people hanging around looking at them. So personally I feel that Eisenegger is great for clothes buying, there is a wide range for girls and boys from around toddler and nappy ages to fully grown people. For footwear and accesories, I've NEVER bothered and probably never will. So don't think this shop is tacky and un wanted, because it is wanted and it certainly isn't tacky! I think I've said enough! Thanks ~M~

              I am not at all convinced by this shop. Admittedly the clothes do look warm/stylish/colourful etc. but I find it hard to believe that the prices were originally as high as they are claiming. I can accept that some people pay extortionate amounts of money on labels. For some people it wouldn't be unusual to pay, say, 200 pounds on a designer jacket like Donna Karen; but whose heard of Eisenegger? There's no way that something over one hundred pounds is just reduced to 13 pounds. It may be believable if it is just a couple of things, but the whole shop is like that. If the stuff is worth that much then why sell it for less? Surely they are losing out? Oh well, am prepared to give it the benefit of the doubt, and if I liked something there enough then I would buy it. But will definitely check it's good quality first!

              This shop opened in my home town about 12 months ago. I went in, took one look at the prices and walked out again! Now they have massive reductions on all their stock. For example, a jacket priced at just under £100 is now being sold for around £20. I think this is a very clever marketing scheme. Goods originally priced at ridiculously high prices sold at massive discounts. Anyway, I have bought trousers, jeans, jackets, tops, fleeces and shoes from this shop since the sale began, and I am impressed with the quality. The sale prices are considerably cheaper than other high street fashion shops. Dorothy Perkins etc, although the range of clothes isn't as large.There is a ladies, gents and childrens section, which may be quite small but are definately worth a look.I know of two, Blackpool and Trafford Centre, Manchester, although I am sure there are many more. If you see one of these shops, I would recommend you give it a try.

              Ok so I was sceptical at first. I mean, my *dad* said it was a good clothes shop. No offence to the old man, but he isn't what I consider my personal fashion guru... Ok, so I was wrong. This is a *brilliant* shop for clothes! The prices are unbelieveable, and the quality is fantastic. They mainly do men's clothes (or what could be considered 'unisex') but there are a few vest tops, coats and skirts for us ladies, too. The shop just recently opened in my town centre (Brighton) and I can see I'm going to spend a lot of time in there. My attention was grabbed by the sign saying 'all items on this rack 12.99' Ever the bargain hunter, I dashed in and found *the* perfect coat for my boyfriend. It was practically identical to one he'd lusted over in Muji (which cost 120 quid, so his lust soon shrivelled) except this one (which was just as high a quality) was under 13 quid! It's ore of a waterproof long-length jacket, I suppose, but with enough zips and tabs and pockets to make it very modern looking. He was hugely impressed with the quality and keeps hoping it will rain so he can wear it more often. Oh yes, and the orginal price of this item was 130 quid... you can tell they're not just knocking them out for 50p and pretending they usually cost that, because of the attention to detailing and the general quality. Also, they do have some items in the shop which aren't reduced (usually at the back of the shop). Dad, you are my (honourary) fashion guru! And let me tell you, I do not say that easily...
