What could there possibly be at Ross that's worth fighting over?

That's classy. You should have seen the knife & baseball bat fight at Dollar General.

There is a Ross next to the Target I go to sometimes, but I've never been in it. It looks like it is somewhere between a downmarket Burlington Coat Factory and an upmarket Goodwill. I'm not even sure if they sell men's clothes, as I've only ever seen large, grumpy, middle aged women going in and out of it.

Well, first ones in get to move all the clothes around so they're no longer sorted by size.  They also get to pull the dresses off the hangers so they either fall to the ground and get stepped on or just get stuck on another dresses'  hanger.

People that come in later can only complain about the mess not contribute to it.

Well so much for social distancing. But..the gene pool at times must be thinned. And I know I'm not the only one thinking this.

Not even, I think a lot of the merchandise at the "discount outlets" is actually made specifically for them, as in, its kind of a scam.

Were they fighting over the one shirt that didn't have a footprint or make-up stains on it?

Just going to say that the more bargain the store, the more willing people are to duke it out.

Think that's bad, wait until the norm for grocery stores gets back into swing. People of WalMart will soon be a televised event on Fox network with the tagline "Can YOU survive the retailpocalyse?"

Don't think I'm going to set foot in a store for quite awhile. Last visit was March 3rd going inside anything other than my Dr's office.

Walmart has been in full swing for awhile.

While the other grocery stores in my town were limiting number of people in at one time, cordoned off for social distance, and only one family member at a time...

Walmart had familes of 5+ browsing, trying on clothes, and buying Tee Vee sets and bbqs.

They have mens clothing , but unless you have time to kill to look for something good in your size you should shop elsewhere.

We were on a br...  Damnit.

My only experience with Ross is that there was one in a city where I used to live and walking thru the store was a shortcut between two downtown streets.  That's all I've got.

Took this pic driving by my local Vegas Ross today. This was closer to the entrance, had to be at least 100 people in line.

We were at a Jacksonville Waffle house, drunk at 3 am, and we actually had a good looking waitress. Turns out it was the owners wife who was filling in to help out for a sick employee.

She joked around with us and when we left my buddy throw her a a$20 and said "Hey baby, go to Ross and buy your self something pretty!"

She responded "shiat, I could get like 3 outfits and a pair of shoes with this!"

They have been away from the temples to long, they must spend money as their god demands and then maybe Capitalism will reward them with wealth and more material things that get put in a closet and never worn again, the fox spirit has said such it must be true.

I  have a ton of in laws in Colombia and when I go I generally bring em clothes and gifts.  So I hit Marshalls and Kohls.  Hell even I buy stuff during the year at Aldis.

I have been to Ross like twice.  I swear all I have ever seen is knock off Fila shoes, Polo Club Tshirts, fake Colognes, shaving kits, and stale bags of candy.

It is like the lost and found of defunct strip malls.

Must be different from WM to WM.  One by me is limiting people, spraying down carts and even has one way aisles.  I don't normally go to WM, but my local grocery store (HEB) started limiting hours and had a line around the store prior to opening at 8AM.   I could hit WM right after they opened at 7, grab what I needed and GTFO by 7:30.  They actually had a pretty good stocked fresh produce section for most of this mess.  Both stores are currently doing pretty good right now.

My wife has been thru two rounds of chemo and has almost no immune system so I'm severely limiting my time around other people.

That one lady in jeans didn't seem to be involved in the fight. She was just teabagging the person on the ground.

I wonder if she's single.

The funny thing about those stores, they are not really bargain stores so much as many labels create cheaper made versions to specifically sell at outlets like this.

Mexicans are basically chameleons. They are white when they are misbehaving, but brown when they are being deported.

middlewaytao: The funny thing about those stores, they are not really bargain stores so much as many labels create cheaper made versions to specifically sell at outlets like this.


And it's going to get even worse. Most of these closeout/outlet/bargain stores rely on overstocked merchandise from big department stores and other retailers..which are either now all pretty much going under or severely limiting their purchasing to reduce the need to sell stuff off at a loss to these stores.

Ross is particularly bad...a lot of stuff seems to already be cheap no-name clothing. I've found a few good things there over the years, but nothing of any great quality. Also, the stores are so sparsely stocked, they always look like they are going out of business.

I realized that one many years ago. I buy most of my tshirts, shorts, and the like at outdoor clothing places like Eddie Bauer, North Face, etc. For a while, it was the only place to buy casual shorts that weren't super baggy and below knee in length, and I like the moisture wicking tshirt material. But that shiat can be pricey so I'd go to their outlet stores. The stuff was decent, a bit  better quality than kohl's, etc, and similar prices. Then I went to an actual Eddie Bauer store. I looked at a similar item, and the difference in quality was instantly apparent. And the thing of it was the prices weren't that much higher, especially since they have sales all the time. North Face was the same.

I'm white too, dude.  I was attempting to be ironic after reading too many news comments sections.  Never mean to offend anyone (unless they truly deserve it)
