This is kind of a stupid argument, but I want to see someone's opinions on the subject!

Since I am Pro, I will go first. It will be my sworn duty in this debate to show that TJ Maxx (we will stick with just that one for now, so no Marshalls, etc) does, in fact, have a number of high quality items. I will avoid an obvious semantics and only look at items for sale.

First, let us start by defining and understanding some key words.

Quality [1] - "The standard of something as measured against other things of a similar kind; the degree of excellence of something"

High [2] - "Of great vertical extent."

I would start by liking to point out the difference between "high" and "highest." High does not require that one be at the top, and so there can be other products of an even higher quality, while the product in question is still considered "high" quality. As such, simply pointing to higher quality items will not disprove the high quality of the items that I list. So now lets move on to the arguments.

This is a Cole Haan leather purse that was sold at TJ Maxx [3]. Now of course, I can't just go to Cole Haan and asked them about their own quality, because stores have a tendency to over-sell themselves in that department. So off to independent reviews. This review is for a particular Cole Haan store [4]. It is a compilation of 39 reviews from customers and it averages 3.5 stars, compared to Coach (one of the highest "quality" stores around, though I hate them) which was only 4.5 stars. We can also see here on a style forum [5], some reviews for Cole Haan. While some are talking about how Cole Haan is not all that good, they are talking about for $300 dollar shoes. That's like saying "Oh, the Porshe is not that great of a car, not compared to the Lamborghini," even if it is not compared to the Lamborghini, in general it is still one sweet car. And likewise, even if Cole Haan is not so great compared to other super high quality stores, it itself still makes a high quality product.

Other examples of high quality products purchased at TJ Maxx [6][7, though I hate Prada][8][9][10].

I will leave it at this for now and leave my opponent to argue that brands such as Cole Haan, Pour la Victoire, Prada, Kors, Alexander Mcqueen, and Lanvin are not really high quality.

Thank you,

Well, my opponent has forfieted this debate (not too surprised). However, it has been shown that TJ Maxx has some items that are generally considered "high quality." Though now if they'd only learn to pay their dang bills.

If possible, I do request that my opponent wait until Friday evening to post their round, otherwise I'll end up missing my round 2.

Reasons for voting decision: I would almost vote bomb against OreEle for his "I hate Prada" remark :p but his arguments were well presented and unrefuted.
