I tried on a pair of jeans at Banana Republic today. They fit in all the right places, looked great on me, and were on sale. Hanley said they were cute, so I took them to the counter to buy them. As the cashier was scanning the price tag, she said, “These are a final sale.”
“Why is that?” I asked.
She seemed caught off guard and said, “Because they’re older stock we need to clear out.”
I knew that. I worked retail. I hadn’t planned on returning the jeans, but as soon as the option was taken away I felt slighted.
“That’s a dumbass policy and outdated business model that I can’t support. Have a good day,” I said and left without the jeans.
