What’s with the LAST CHANCE SALE emails? ONE DAY ONLY! FREE SHIPPING FOR TWO HOURS? ACT NOW! HURRY! LIMITED QUANTITIES??
Look, I've written ad-copy filled with the need for immediacy but these annoying emails are not very creative and the last chance ones sound like BLATANT lies. I've been to the Panama Canal and I've seen the freighters full of stuff coming to America from overseas. Why do these big box stores order so much crap if they can’t sell it? Isn't that called inefficiency? Aren't these overstocked stores traded on Wall Street? Isn't our 401K part of this incompetence?
Sheesh, maybe they're planning for the rapture or plan to clear out their inventory before some impending zombie apocalypse hits downtown. Should I use these emails as an indicator of doom?
These stores are expecting me to leave my computer, change into something decent, drive like a maniac and use a paltry 15% off coupon immediately on something I most likely don’t need. Sorry, but my patience, blood pressure and temperament can't handle these emails. Delete. Delete. Though I shop at these stores and don’t mind knowing about upcoming specials, there is something about this LAST MINUTE stuff that drives me nuts. Message to store: I will go shopping when I feel like it and not any time sooner!!! GOT IT?
Sorry for venting, but what do you think?
