One of the thrift stores here has begun piercing the CUFFS of the shirts it gets with those hang tags. 'Pierce' is too weak a word, more like they GORE the things. I complained about it, but no one seemed to think my grievance was worth their time to hear. The shirts at this particular place are individually priced, adding to the issue. I've yet to find anything nice there as it's likely the owners know what's 'good' and what isn't, and likely make extra money on the side via EBAY.
Sometimes complaining works. a GW was putting some rubber bands around rolled up ties. Looked really nice when all laid out, but 1) you couldn't see the brand and 2) you couldn't see any snags. I mentioned reason #2 (didn't bring up the brand one) and as of my last visit they had stopped doing it
Would like to procure me one of thoese fabric/snag pullers, too. deets?
