21. Sometimes you can't help people swarming on certain days of the year, but
I think each store needs to get the necessary security handle it. We used to have insane St. Patrick's Days in a bar I worked in back when I did bar tending. There was nothing you could do to stop it short of closing the place and I'm almost certain people would have broken in if that had happened. The management where I worked hired security for the day. The security actually stood at the doors and limited the crowd going in so there was a line-up outside, so that it was first come and first serve. When some customers left, they let others in. This gave the people who were indoors room to move around and not get jabbed with pointed objects. They also helped to escort the servers through the crowd especially making sure the broken glass was kept swept up. Most were really beefy guys that were ex-football players so no one pushed them around. Also, we used as much plastic ware as possible but bottles got broken anyway.

I really feel that these stores' lack of preparation for the swarm of people that they know is going to arrive ahead of time speaks for their gross negligence and that goes all the way up to the CEO. I'll betcha they got extra Brinks pickups though to protect the money. I think lawsuits are very much in order.
