Store staff said “it was like a food fight with clothes” as customers made an angry exit. “Then they started messing up the front of the store with garbage, lipstick anything they could find.”
We mark things up 100%, so 100% Off means everything is half price!
Mr De Lox was very upset with the customers“We wanted to clear out inventory to make room for spring fashions.” “Since we mark things up 100%, so 100% off means everything is half price, not free!” “These people are crazy if they think we are giving the whole store away for free.”
” We work hard and give 110% every day and then a bunch of crazy customers show up and try to take things for free” continued Mr De Lox
