#104 crazy days

104/365 crazy days, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

Twice a year – spring and autumn – our biggest department store organizes its ‘crazy days’ (‘hullut päivät’) with 3-5 days of special bargain products. They only have a limited stock of each product, so it’s first come, first served. Sometimes people even fight over the last items!

You can’t miss this in the streets either as their signature yellow plastic bags can be seen everywhere. Some people clearly go crazy quite literally!

    What kind of discount do you get, Sinikka? We used to have this madness with 50% off or more, but now it’s normally no more than 30% since people were being knocked over in the rush to get there first.

    Actually these ‘crazy days’ don’t work on a percentage basis. They bring whole new stock at good prices in, without mentioning a percentage. They also publish a catalogue where you can check what products will be available on each day. Sometimes I choose what I want to get in advance and mark them in the catalogue but by the time I get there after school in the afternoon, they’ve already sold out… It can get pretty nasty here, too, when people try to get what they want before somebody else gets hold of it.

    It all sounds crazy 🙂 I wonder if they sell the same quality merchandise as usual if they are getting in different goods for this sale.
    The photo is fun (and more complementary colours)
