It’s a One Day Sale (For Very Large Values of “One Day”)

Filed under: shopping — Tags: — Brian Lutz @ 10:25 pm

Yesterday while I was wandering around shopping for a new digital camera (more on that later on,) for some unknown reason I managed to end up at the local Bon Marche Macy’s store.  On the front door, I found this:

According to some of the math skills that I managed to learn back in First Grade, a one day sale should require just one day, yet for some unknown reason it now requires two days to conduct such a sale, at least at this particular location.  Either someone needs to work on their math here, or this whole inflation thing is getting worse than I thought.

I’d add a “Yo’ Momma’s So Slow” joke here, but my brother would probably punch me for doing so.



  1. You got that right!

  2. It’s the librials fault. The public schools.

  3. Macy’s holds a preview day (Friday) and then the actual sale. Standard practice nationwide, even in TV ads.

  4. I still think that “One day sale at the Bon Marche” flows MUCH better than whatever they are trying to package their two day “one day” sale as now. My mom has worked at THE BON for about 20 years now. The only people I have ever confused by calling it “The Bon” were my new neighbors who just moved here from Wisconsin.
