Today’s Deal

But 1 Get 2 FREE!

Sounds like a great deal. I’m not sure I need more ties (does anyone?) but at that price I would at least look. But there’s a catch.

The offer, which showed up in my email this morning from a Moores, the Canadian men’s clothing chain, is good today only. Today is a statutory holiday, Labour Day, in Canada. The store isn’t open. In fact if they tried to open the police would shut them down and they would be fined – we take our holidays seriously.

Given that, I don’t know why they offered a buy one get two free deal. Why not just offer everything in the store for free? It wouldn’t have cost them anything. I shouldn’t complain though – it did amuse me and give me the opportunity to share that amusement with you. It is a rare day that I post twice.

Enjoy your Labour Day! And if you are somewhere where the holiday isn’t being celebrated, there’s a “Buy 1 Get 2 FREE” sale on ties at Moores.
