65. Symbolic of what? It's where the poor people shop.
Hey, you!!! Part of the 99 percent!! I know your kid needs socks, but feel like a shit for buying them here, because this is the only store where they are affordable!!!!

I just don't get the symbolism. It's amusing, to an extent, but that sort of thing won't have much shelf life if it gets routine.

Target is a step up, certainly--it's where the "middle class" shop. Of course, they're still schmucks, but with slightly more economic security (until it goes away, anyway).

But the rich shop at Needless Markup and the other high-end joints.

Of course, to get in to those fancy venues without attracting suspicion, your flash mob would have to take a little effort to try to fit in....
