3. We also stocked like that for "sales" at Circuit City

5 or 6 of items on "sale". I guess the object is to get people in and then sell them something else.

The poor clerks at the counters would have to explain to customers all day long that we were out of stock of whatever heavily advertised item we were supposed to have. I remember one old guy put up about an hours' worth of fuss over something that we had zero of in stock. He was there like 30 minutes after opening and we were sold out. And we had no comparable items at all.

Luckily I worked in stock, and didn't have to be in at opening time on Black Friday. So I missed most of the frenzied goodness, and just wound up shoveling TVs into cars for the day.
