If there's 50 of something, let the employees get 10 of them, that's fine. But if there's five of something and the employees buy all five before the store opens, don't you think there's something wrong with that?


I agree that the stores shouldn't go overboard with it. Like in your example, if they've got 5, all 5 shouldn't go to employees.

Something to remember though is that any store that does go overboard will lose sales, as the customers know they won't be able to get what they want at that particular store. Which means they won't go there next year. ;-)


Well, I hope you're right, but I don't count on the American consumer to have that great a long-term memory. Throw something shiny at them next year and they'll be back, regardless of what happened this year.

Heh, yeah, that's actually a very good point. :-b
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
