Forman Mills Clothing Factory Warehouse is the latest discount store to arrive in Chicago’s Austin community. The huge store, in the bright and thoroughly remodeled building at 1450 North Cicero Avenue, is holding its Grand Opening starting Friday, March 18 at 7:00 AM, and continuing through Sunday.
    Radio personalities from WGCI, KISS-FM, and the Telemundo Money Machine will be on hand Saturday to welcome shoppers.
    Available are name brand clothing at bargain prices, including Timberland, LA Gear, Reebok, Infant Pelle, Derrick Rose jerseys, PhatFarm, Rocawear, and more. And, everything is 50%-80% off regular prices on the massive selection of men’s, women’s, and children’s clothing, shoes, and outerwear. According to Forman Mills Manager, Michael Boyd, the store has a staff of about 147. After the store is up and running, the permanent staff will probably be between 100 and 120 people working as sales clerks, cashiers, stock clerks, and managers. This is the second store in the Chicago area, with two more preparing to open at 111th & Halsted and 79th & Perry on the South Side, with more planned.
    Rick Forman started Forman Mills in South Philadelphia as a flea market and then grew the concept into a chain of discount department stores selling name brand overstock merchandise. He also emphasizes hiring employees from the neighborhoods served by the stores.
    At a special sneak peek this week, we met Alderman Deborah Graham and Commissioner Barbara McGowan with their arms full of clothes heading for the check-out. Alderman Emma Mitts had already shopped and was taking her bargains home.

  1. knock off clothes lol

  2. if their clothes were fake dont u think that they wuld have been raided by now like those little neighborhood shops ijs!!

  3. Problem: HP Printer not connecting to my laptop.
    I had an issue while connecting my 2 year old HP printer to my brother's laptop that I had borrowed for starting my own business. I used a quick google search to fix the problem but that did not help me.
    I then decided to get professional help to solve my problem. After having received many quotations from various companies, i decided to go ahead with Online Tech Repair (
    Reasons I chose them over the others:
    1) They were extremely friendly and patient with me during my initial discussions and responded promptly to my request.
    2) Their prices were extremely reasonable.
    3) They were ready and willing to walk me through the entire process step by step and were on call with me till i got it fixed.
    How did they do it
    1) They first asked me to state my problem clearly and asked me a few questions. This was done to detect any physical connectivity issues with the printer.
    2) After having answered this, they confirmed that the printer and the laptop were functioning correctly.
    3) They then, asked me if they could access my laptop remotely to troubleshoot the problem and fix it. I agreed.
    4) One of the tech support executives accessed my laptop and started troubleshooting.
    5) I sat back and watched as the tech support executive was navigating my laptop to spot the issue. The issue was fixed.
    6) I was told that it was due to an older version of the driver that had been installed.
    My Experience
    I loved the entire friendly conversation that took place with them. They understood my needs clearly and acted upon the solution immediately. Being a technical noob,

    sometimes find it difficult to communicate with tech support teams. It was a very different experience with the guys at Online Tech Repairs. You can check out their website or call them on 1-914-613-3786.
    Would definitely recommend this service to anyone who needs help fixing their computers.
    Thanks a ton guys. Great Job....!!

  5. The clothes may not be fake, but they are clearly lower quality.. In my opinion this is all fake advertisement.. You see BRAND NAME and Designer brands that you associate with quality, and those same designers clothes at Forman Mills are just not the same. I happened to come across 3 items that I had bought at Macy's at Forman Mills.. When inspected them, all 3 were noticeably different. The shirt was disproportionate and the neck was super big. It even seemed thinner then my shirt bought from Macy's. This was a Roc a Wear Tshirt. The cargo shorts where the most obvious. They were LRG cargo shorts. The quality just stood out, or lack thereof. There were threads sticking out all over the place, the fly was all messed up, and the stitching was just terrible. Then onto the Jeans. They were Ecko jeans. The jeans were pretty good at first glance. Looked all legit. That is until I tried them on. When trying them on, the proportions were off. One leg was longer then the other, and the crotch area was stitched way too tight. Then when I was zipping up the fly, the zipper broke off! LOL. Yeah. So thats that. So I bought 2 T's and some underwear. The underwear at least had the decency to say they had flaws. The Tshirts, even washed in cold water and hung dry shrunk and changed color. The quality was terrible. So my question is.... HOW?.... WHY?.... How and why are they doing this? How can they advertise these designer brands with tags saying crazy prices and sell them for $10? Why is the quality so much different from those same designer clothes bought at Macy's? Is there some kind of scam going on? I highly doubt they are fakes becuause they would have been caught already. My only thought is that these Designer Brands work with Forman Mills and make clothes specifically for Forman Mills. I mean Forman Mills is a HUGE company and makes tons of money. I would not be surprised that these Designer brands make lower quality items that look the same, just with cheaper materials. I mean its the same thing as fakes and is false advertisement, but it's just the Brands control their own fakes and make them LOL... Crazy stuff.... Thoughts anyone?

  6. Your blog give many information thanks for share this informative article.

  7. When people who make clothes mess up a shirt or pair of pants, it goes to the reject pile. For example, if they used too much fabric on one side of the pant leg or ran out of thread and had to start with a new spool... Or say a machine making mass amounts of Coogi sweaters got jammed, that shirt goes to the reject pile. Or the woman from China whose been sowing for 10 hours straight, the same exact shirt, accidentally triple stitches,,,, reject!!! Those clothes get sent to Forman mills. One time, looking at a rack of sweat pants at foreman mills, one of the pairs had an arm!!! The same trip, I wanted a Blackhawks tshirt, and there were letters missing, like "Chicago Blakhaws" and on the front of one Blackhawks shirt was a picture of Patrick Kane and the back of the shirt said Crawford!!! Some of the clothes are hilarious. Others, you can barely notice what's wrong. I found some really great $40 Sealy Memory Foam pillows for $8.
