I went out first thing this morning with all the crazies--and I was sure to smile a lot and say extra "thank you"s to the folks behind all those registers. I used to work in retail myself, so I know how it can suck.

I got almost all my shopping done. Tomorrow...the family portraits.

I've checked the ads and generally all the prices look the same; I believe that these stores jack the price 15-20% then claim to reduce them by the same amount so there's no real savings...maybe a few discontinued items but nothing that would get me there at 6 a.m.

Anyone like Kohl's????? I HATE that store! they carry very few name brands, except for their own, and their signs say, "lowest price of the year!" except that its the same price it was several months back and even before then...

Penney's seems to do the same thing...no real savings, not even at Xmas....

I hate Kohl's too Mr. BAW. You're so right about not carrying a lot of brand names. Oh and Wal-Mart sucks big time.

Not a fan of Kohl's either.....Alot of our customers were complaining about Kohl's to us as we rung them up at our store
I survived working in retail today. Let's see huge lines, a fight just about broke out-I had to call security, A customer passed out in a dept. and stopped breathing. A nurse in line helped her out and the woman came to. At first she refused medical attention. but after alot of coaxing by security, the nurse and the paramedics agreed to go to the hospital. Unreal.
Most often asked questions of the day:
1. Can I use my coupon on this?
2. Why not?
3. Where are the (insert name of various doorbusters)?
4. Isn't there anyone on the floor to help?
5. Did you remember to take my coupon off?

If I didn't work in retail, I wouldn't go near a mall or store over this entire weekend.

That's scary that someone passed out!! We had a lady flip out and storm out the door upon being greeted, but she was our biggest nutcase; it wasn't so bad.

Heard those questions a lot myself; I think shoppers need an FAQ before they walk in the door!
