92. It's not "inability". It's refusal.
No way could a chain that size be incapable of designing effective crowd control. They just didn't want to because it would cost a a few hundred $s per store in salary for security outside the store for a couple hours around opening time.

Those "quantities strictly limited" sales have to be outlawed on a state by state basis as the variation of "bait and switch" that they are, not to mention safety hazard. Make a note to yourselves, DUers to write your state legislators in January. And follow up. And form ad hoc consumer lobbying committees that issue press releases.

I'll actively recruit for such a committee in my state forum here on DU, and am looking forward to others doing likewise.
