Blog: Suits you Sir
Leonie Barrie | 20 March 2009
Buying a new work suit could be seen as a risky move at a time when layoffs and cutbacks in hiring are rife.
But not if you take up a new offer from men’s retailer Jos A Bank Clothiers. It’s promising to refund the price of a suit if the buyer loses his job – and what’s more, he’ll be able to keep the suit too.
“We believe we are the only national men’s apparel company offering this special program to its customers,” said CEO R Neal Black.
“We want to help the customer look good at work, and if he loses his job, to be dressed appropriately as he meets with his next employer.”
The deal applies to any suit or suit separates purchased during the firm’s $199 Sale which runs until 9 April.
If the customer involuntarily loses his job between 16 April and 1 July, JoS A Bank will refund the price he paid for the suit.
“It’s like giving all of our customers a bit of unemployment insurance,” the company says.
