Ok, so the economy is week and banks are going belly up everyday right. Yesterday, I went to the Illinois Premium Outlet in Aurora with my girl to pick up some odds and ends. As soon as we entered the shopping area, everyone had Coach shopping bags like there where giving the shit away. We went to the store, stood in line for 15 minutes to get in the store. 30-50% off the marked prices. Store volume was huge. The cashier said that there is a large inventory buildup and they need room for the winter inventory. I've never seen a store packed like that. Has anyone else been in there local stores lately??
This will hurt gross at 30-50% off but will help revenue.
