Retail tactics?

Slightly confused by the sales tactics being employed by a local retailer, (not just any local retailer); go round the clothing dept and your wife picks out something she really likes for £x's; then she's told, if you come in on d-day, there's a sale on and it will be £10 -20 cheaper. So presumably no one's buying anything until the day of the "sale"? Then there's a mad rush, with computer literal folk being given the added advantage of ordering on line the previous evening. Then after discovering they didn't have her size in the sale, the Mrs comes home to see a TV news report that profits in the clothing dept of this store are plumeting. Sorry, but I can't quite follow this particular sales tactic? :unsure:

Not sure you can blame the retailer for what a member of staff says - I suspect that memeber of staff would have got a b********* if a manager had overheard.

Not blaming the staff, far from it - it's this tactic that doesn't seem to make sense, other than off loading excess stock. If they want folk to buy clothes, why don't they employ a panel of women of all ages, to vet the designs prior to including them in their stock; ensuring of course high quality (no flimsy stitching by some Indian girl on 1 rupee pr day) and folk can get back to boasting about where they bought their cloths - not just any cloths! :wink:
