“I just got back from a trip to Los Angeles and I was in my car and I looked at the clothes that were in the department stores.
And I was like, ‘Wow, this is insane,'” she said.
“And then I thought, ‘I’m going to buy it.'”
She says the prices were outrageous.
“I thought, well, I’ll go and get a new one.”
So, she went on Amazon.
“After a couple days, I’m like, I’ve got to go on sale.”
And within minutes, she was back at her office, buying a new dress for her daughter’s wedding.
“It was a very different experience than the first time, but it was worth it because I was able to do a lot more research,” she said, adding she decided to buy from Amazon because the company was “much more transparent.”
“I actually saw that they actually did the research and actually did research to find the best deals on the websites and that kind of made me feel good about buying from them.”
She says she didn’t expect to spend $400 for a dress from the store she bought it from.
“This is my first time buying from Amazon,” she explained.
“The company really was transparent about everything.”
She believes Amazon’s policies and policies are far better than her local department stores and Walmart.
“They really did a good job of not trying to make it a shopping experience that was hard for me,” she told Business Insider.
“That’s a really good thing.
It made me happy.”
