@Suntan12 - I know what you are saying but many of these companies do offer business opportunities for people that can’t work traditional jobs, but it does take a lot of work.
I wanted to add that I noticed recently that a designer of a bedding line may have one line upscale line in a higher end department store and then offer a more moderately priced bedding line in a big box retailer. While the brand is the same, the quality is different.
For example, in the big box retailer that sheets might be 200 thread counts, but in the upscale department store, the thread count might be 300 or more, and the price difference is huge. I think that it is smart to offer the brand in a strategic marketing fashion like this because the company gets to take advantage of the consumers in the lower end of the market as well as the higher end of the market.
I think that if you are buying this brand from a big box retailer and know that the brand is also sold in high end stores it tends to offer more perceived value even though the quality might not be the same.
