How many trades today Eddie? Noticed that PSUN
had great numbers and ZQK is their largest account.
Men's numbers in single digits(good for a spring/summer
retailer)and womens numbers in the teens. Thanks to Quiksilver
they have great sales. Not a whole lot of selling
today Eddie. Maybe no one believes your B.S.
I didn't forget to look for the season code
listing we talked about earlier, I just can't seem to
find it. The post by Female Mgr. is right, in that the
current season alpha symbol, and you just have to go
backwards for prior seasons.
The Quik shirts your
wife bought for you from Ross is one season old...but
like I said earlier, if you haven't seen them before,
their "new" to you.
Just don't tell anyone that
you got it at Ross'. Man, ZQK has got to get out of
those cheap stores! What did your wife pay? I bet she
got it for 50% off...at least!
i found this stock a few months ago..zqk is
considered a smallcap stock.smallcaps are showing some
strength right now as people sell off their bluechips. i
bought in this week..the stock has potential and more
people will come back to this sector overtime looking
for value plays..also this co.actually makes a profit
something that is not in vogue rightnow.patience.warren
buffet is the best value investor in the world.he is not
a daytrader he buys and holds companys he feels wil
make money over the long haul.as i said before this is
not in vogue right now. but, it will come around
again .even walmart and bestbuy are struggling right
Hi Surferdude - couple comments:
1) I enjoy
your reasonable attempts to discuss issues on this
2) At the most recent trade shows (ASR in Long Beach
and MAGIC in Vegas), I saw copies of the Quik Line
lists for the product they are selling now. Their
Summer 2000 line list indicated it would ship to stores
in March of this year, which I presume means it will
be on the stores floor some time starting in April.
All of the styles listed had a 'V' in front of it.
Example V108xxx. So if you go backwards on the shirt your
wife bought, where the style # shown starts with a
'Q', I think that means it is old product that would
date back to Quik's Spring 1999 line, or product that
would have been sold at regular
surf/specialty/department stores back in January of 1999. Sounds like
excess product, which is usually what goes to all the
Ross/TJ Maxx/Marshalls stores from ALL branded labels
after regular selling season are over.
in Haiti' would mean that the fabric would have come
from USA and that the garment was sewn in Haiti. Most
product these days from ALL branded labels come from all
over the globe.
I was curious to see if you could date the shirt
described in post #1709. You'd also be interested to know
that Ross is another "cheap" store that you can add to
the list. My wife just bought me two more Quik shirts
there. The tags are RN#22443 CA#32350 Style#Q108078 and
RN22443 CA32550. Note these are the same or almost the
same as the shirt purchased 8 months ago. One shirt
also has a tag that says "Assembled in
What's your take?
Most people I know leave their computers at home
when they go on a vacation. And if it's a business
trip....the last thing they would do is spend time on this
board. It might be wiser to spend time on a surfboard
(if you know how)
than this "board."
I was in Long Beach for ASR, then flew in to San
Francisco, visiting some friends, having some good food and
a great time. I'm here until Friday, then the
"gang" will fly to Tahoe for some skiing/boarding. Leave
Monday morning for Las Vegas to take in MAGIC, then back
No surfing on this trip, although I may still go to
Santa Cruz for a day...haven't made up my mind yet.
I need to pull some papers in my office to tell
you exactly what the Season alpha code was for the
shirt your wife purchased for you from Marshalls. I
can't remember off hand what the alpha codes are off
the top of my head.
Right now, I'm on the
west coast on "vacation" until MAGIC which starts next
I probably would have paid a lot more but why
would I when I can get it cheaper at Marshalls. I don't
care if its last year's line. I'm not a kid worrying
about having the latest fashion. I can't tell the
difference anyway. They should dump their excess inventory
overseas instead of in the Marshalls type
So, right now I'm wearing a Quik shirt my wife bought
at Marshall's last summer. The tag says "RN 22443 CA
32550". Can you tell me how old it was when my wife
