    What are those supposed to be?

    They’re old-fashioned price tags.

    I’ve stood in line for exactly one Boxing Day sale. Never again. It just wasn’t worth it.

    Snowman dolls? I fed my cat people food tuna rather than join 200,000 of my close friends to make a cat food run.

    One place I worked for, they would double the price then take half off.

    The actual regular price, that the dealer paid, is $3.90! He just marks it up to $389.99 for most of the year. But, beginning in October, he marks all his “merc” down to $39.99 for the Christmas rush!

    I used to work for Montgomery Ward. On the night before a sale, we’d have to work late putting higher prices on all the merchandise so they can claim the “sale” price was lower. I’m sure it’s still done today.

    Not at MW! They destroyed a friend who was nearing retirement, only to have his pension reduced to a single cash payment, when they closed the doors. My friend died a few years later, leaving his disabled wife with nothing.

    That is SOP. Every place does that and has been for years.

    Isnt’ Boxin Day supposed to be a day to box up all the various trinkets while swilling mimosas, nog, ale (etc) and watching football or futbol or hoops (etc)?

    rofl, never actually worked retail, have you? From November 1st though sometime in January we are in complete hell. No, it does not stop after Christmas. At least for grocery stores. You can not imagine the insanity that comes with new years. Have you ever sold 800 gallons of 2% gallons of milk in one day? Not counting all the other kinds? All the other party products people want? No? Ok, then don’t sit there saying there’s nothing to do after Christmas, cause trust me, there is. Plus there’s all the cleanup from the hell month, oh, I guess you normal people wouldn’t know what the hell month is. That’d be November.

    Well… and Returns Day, of course. ;-)
    Also, this could be taken 2 ways… inflated prices before Christmas or discounts on all the leftover Christmas junk that nobody bought. ;-)

    That would explain why there is no longer a Montgomery Ward in my town.

    More likely is that your Monkey Ward was killed by Mao Mart
