When I went in there last a few weeks ago, all I can remember seeing was a decent amount of Crooks, Rocksmith, and probably some L&D.

funny thing is it looks like you're carrying exactly what identity and cartel are carrying. where are the differences?

Welp i think most of those brands go through the same MTL distributor, so it would make sense. Dudes just trying to see whats the diff between the stores if they carry the same stuff. Prices the same at both?

exactly. and if you have any sense of business, it's not exactly brilliant to have all your product being pretty much the same as your competition. you're seriously asking me why does their have to be differences? use your head a little.

155 John is at the disadvantage at this point because clay seems to be picking up more brands and has significantly more room to house all of it. what it comes down to may indeed be price. or even service for that matter.

And yes, i do believe a lot of the product does go through that Montreal distribution, which does explain the similarities.

I agree with DrewDogg. Way too much competition in the area. Given the size of the competition, I can only see one of 3 things happening to John 155/Lounge. 1. Closing up shop for good. 2. Another shop comes and absorbs them., (but may not necessarily close the store) or 3. they move out of the area to somewhere north/north west, where there is less competition.

Haha, no disrespect, but I'm a realist. Notice how I didn't mention any sort of time frame.

lol. I too don't think the future outlook of 155 John is very bright. It's a matter of time. The store, for many many months now has been more of a streetwear warehouse sale more than anything else. still burning? maybe, but it's equivalent to lighting a match when your competition are full blown arsonists.

IMO, there has gotta be some rash changes in order to survive compared to the competition locally. I could be wrong, but it's what i think. I may not own a boutique, but that doesn't signify i'm not observant and may know a thing or two.

Don't get me wrong, i would love to have Lounge, step it up and have some great stuff in. That's one more place to shop in Toronto, I can't hate on that.
