The rush to the sales .

Following the season of giving many people are rushing to the sales. Sometimes there is a siege mentality with shoppers as they surge forward to grab the goods.

Of course shopping in America is even more aggressive as crowds who had queued for hours rushed into stores to get their hands on a pair of Air Jordan 11 Retro Concords. Such was the competition for the black and white footwear, some shopping centres saw fights and stampedes. In Tukwila, a suburb of Seattle, officers had to use pepper spray to stop brawls breaking out in a crowd of up to 2,000 people. A police spokesman said the Westfield South Centre mall had entrance doors ripped off and 25 officers were needed to restore order.

This is all rather sad and shows how strong consumer demand can be, even for a pair of over-priced trainers.
