Popinjay - Deceptive

This week's Popinjay prompt is "Deceptive".  Let me tell you what I hate...when a store, any store, has a "going out of business sale", but the sale is a big huge snow job.  What I mean is...said store advertises BIG CLOSEOUT SALE. Signs everywhere, emails sent to your inbox, signs on the side of the street telling you to come on in and save. Everything must go, therefore, the prices as slashed WAY down.

Everything 20-75% off.

And then you walk in...and you walk around...and there is one shelf with items 75% off. Another shelf with items 50% off.

The rest of the store? is 20-35% off.  Off prices that were already above other store's prices anyway.

So...really? Not a sale...not a bargain...


I hate that.
