Burlington Coat Factory: Pulling the wool over our eyes


A Connecticut TV station has nabbed Burlington Coat Factory for passing off low-priced Wal-Mart coats as premium Perry Ellis and Joseph Abboud garments. It's hard to believe anyone thought they could get away with it. All it took was a customer noticing that his label appeared to be pasted on. He tugged on it, and the whole scam unraveled: Cheaper coats were being passed off as name-brand high fashion.
