I agree. I aunt was visiting from New Orleans (Go Saints) and she saw the sign (90% off) and wanted to go in. I quickly told her it was a scam.

I assume their only business is tourist? If you've lived here more than a month you must know it's a scam.

Hi. I walked by the store today, saw some colourful bags and decided to check for bargains. But I never heard of the brand, good thing that by googling I saw your post here. THE SIGNS ARE STILL THERE, and indeed the sales staff said, 'our store is closing very soon', and immediately lowered a bag from $149 (at 70% discount), to 'you can have this for $129'. Just to share.

Hi there,I indeed fell into this tourist trap. The bag I bought is not too bad .But normally i would not have bought.So I am the only one to blame. Just being greedy!

Oh dear me! Wish I read this twenty hours ago. I fell in love with a black tote bag with red handles that I thought would be perfect for my laptop, ipad, the works. I was torn between the black and a red one; went for the black coz it's all-seasonal. Then I noticed that one said "Cleo and Patek" and the other said "Toblanc Paris." The sales woman, whom I had caught rolling her eyes at another customer, explained that Toblanc bought Cleo and Patek. At the back of my mind, I knew I was being scammed by an eye-rolling associate, but I liked the bag enough that I bought it. This morning, I woke up feeling really awful about this purchase coz my intuition was deeper and I did my research and found this page. Now I really hate myself for this. Lesson learnt.

I was fascinated to read all the comments. Personally, I have been a big fan of Cleo & Patek bags for years.As an architect, I look for design, quality and function. My C&P bag is all the above. I have used it daily for 3 years. It still looks brand new. I get so many compliments, all the time. I am glad they are still in business so I can return and get the same bag in other colors.On the pricing and discounted bit: I never take that stuff seriously. I look at the price something costs and determine if it's worth that amount to me.
