“The incident served as an insight into the society which is on the brink of bankruptcy, but have all the money and time to fight — quite literally — over clothes sale.” As an advertisement plastered on the walls outside the outlet read 30-50% off, one cannot help but wonder what this 30% off has come to mean in our lives today!
