One Reason To Enjoy Our Special Thanksgiving Weekend Sale

Tales from Black Friday, 2005

"Getting trampled, punched and pushed trying to buy goods is something the company needed to deal with beforehand. It is the store's responsibility to insure consumers are not hurt entering their stores. They should have also told people who were in line for so long that other advertised items were not available." [Consumer Affairs]

As Mangesh announced yesterday, we're having a big Thanksgiving sale this holiday weekend. If you spend over $100 in our store and use the discount code "Thanks," you'll automatically get 25% off your order. And you won't be subjected to pushing, punching or trampling. Not a bad deal. Visit our store to check out our books, back issues and the new shirts. Happy Thanksgiving!
