Buying towels from stores as opposed to buying them online is an entirely difference exercise. When you buy online your choice is influenced by the look of the towels in the online catalogs and primarily on visual appeal, there’s a 50-50 chance that you may or may not be pleased when the product finally reaches you. When you buy from a store, your choice is influenced by the touch and feel of the product in your hand, and though you may feel that your personal introspect should form the validation of the quality of the product, you should know that nearly all towels are treated by towel manufacturers with softeners before they put on the shelves. This implies that all of them feel soft and gentle when you physically inspect them, which may not be the same after you have used them for a couple of weeks. Here are a few things to note while buying towels from retail stores.
You need to be careful when inspecting around the edges because they are the first part of the towel which gets worn out. The shelf life of the towels is determined by the quality of the towels and you need to inspect them wisely to get the best bang for your buck. The edges should ideally be double turned and double stitched.
Just like the music industry, label is of immense significance in the towel business. But you can’t risk taking everything at face value and you need to learn to read between the lines. You should double check the label of the towel diligently to make sure beyond all misunderstanding that you are indeed getting 100% of the fabric that you are looking for
Buying towels from stores always gives you the liberty of trying it on yourself which is something you’d never get while online shopping. You can wrap the towel around yourself to be convinced that it fits you before you make the final purchase. Since most towels shrink after the first wash you need to make sure the towel is large enough and ideally 34” wide and 68” long. If you are buying beach towels in real or beach towel wholesale, the towels should be at-least 70″ long.
Pick it up
When buying towels from stores, you need make the most of the opportunity and get enough returns for the time and efforts invested. Don’t just touch the towel to sense the feel for the heck, pick it up and try it on to see how it feels. And always remember, the heavier the towel, the more absorbent it will be.
