Destruction for fashion

Wednesday, March 15th, 2006

I don’t know what store this is, but I can’t stand egregious waste. Basically, rather than dilute their high-end brand, they destroy old merchandise in full view of customers if it doesn’t sell. I suppose the intended message is that their stuff is so exclusive that it should be destroyed rather than be seen in the dirty hands of the un-cool. Or that you may as well pay full price, since they certainly won’t be doing any discounting. Dunno. Heck – I don’t even go into stores that keep their air conditioning on with their doors wide open in the summer, so this is way over my line.
