7 things stores don't want you to know
You're looking for a deal, and they're looking to get inside your head and make you buy more than you had planned. But forewarned is forearmed; here's their game plan.
A method to mall madness
The 'magic' of the display
When BOGO and two-fer deals are good
Don't turn right when entering the store
Why clearance items are in the back
Why the clearance area is messy
Beware the small stuff around the registers
Be selective when shopping with friends
What do you think?
VIDEO ON MSN MONEY
When your lucky enough to barely pay your bills, food ,gas, rent and utilities ....
Don't expect our family to fall these phony sales and clearance crap..
we don't have the money to buy anything in the first place...fyi
I can not believe they are trotting out this very stupid and inaccurate piece of tripe a second time.
Just keep reading the comments if you doubt how awful this load of nonsense was received the first time.
No retailer keeps clearance areas a mess on purpose. Very hard working clerks clean them up to have them trashed 10 minutes later by the bargain hunters. A mess does not move and no one wants clearance on their shelves. Just plain idiotic writing .
A big thanks for pissing me off with the same ridiculous article.
What irony this article presents. MSN Money focus should be on saving money; this article just cost me the time to read it and make this comment. Either MSN has some extremely naive writers that think this is useful information or they have a bunch of just plain dumb people working for them. Actually this article seems to be the same one MSN ran about 2 months ago; either there is a lot of plagiarism going on or MSN Money assumes their readers have totally lost their memory.
Thanks to all who wrote that the article was not worth reading; I skimmed over it and agree with you all!
My 2 bits of advice: if you don't have the money for the new fashions, wait for those items to go on the clearance racks and buy them at that time. If the store doesn't carry your size or style, why bother entering the store? Find a place that has reasonable prices, good return policy and helpful staff.
Retail workers are underpaid for all the cr*p they take from customers, so be kind and try not to make a mess in the store; other people (staff and customers) will appreciate your kindness!
Oh, and for all you grocery shoppers who stop your cart in the middle of the aisle, please remember that you are not the only person in the store. I want to get my shopping done, too, so please move your cart to the side before you start perusing the items on the shelves. Thanks.
