What's the matter with people?

I know this sort of thing has always happened at sales, but what's so important about designer clothes that reduces people to savages?

Call me Man at Matalan if you like, but I don't see it myself.

And I venture to guess that a percentage of those 'misbehaving' be put up to it by the stores promotion team- and the Media briefed into the bargain
How else do they get their name into the paper?
Call me an old cynic if you wish

If people are really so desperate for designer clothes, I'm surprised they don't just ram-raid the place. Much easier I'd have thought.

Never seen any fights at Tesco or Georges at Asda clothing section. I wonder why!.

My Asda/Tesco £3.00 jeans have a rip in the knee. Is this item now a designer issue, similar to the one's Beck's and other famous celebrities wear!.

The problem is lack of respect, not just for other people but for themselves as well.

I think the store plants people in the crowd to stir things up and gain the media interest...

The cynics here probably have a point. Who remembers the hysteria of trying to buy a Cabbage Patch doll, Tracy Island or Ninja Turtle?

I think that the to-days style is to buy a designer bargain and then make a good profit re-selling it on eBay or the markets.

Clockwork Orange sells Diesel, Replay, Miss Sixty, Energie, Adidas, Fornarina, Gas and loads more.

That just may explain why you don't get the same extreme buying energy surges in Tesco or Asda.

Dummies and the feeling poorly should therefore stay well away from these sales.
