    At a mall store like that the cost of production is miniscule, though. It's different for low-volume designer clothing where the cost to manufacture is significant.

    no we donate appropriate products and ship the rest back to corporate distribution. Too either be resold new next season or probably destroyed/sent to Africa dunno. Only thing I've "destroyed" on spot was huge furniture like customer returned tables and open makeup/perfume.

    Click the "trashgate" link in my earlier post, there are a few more pretty interesting things:

    http://ny.racked.com/archives/2010/01/12/digging_through_urban_outfitters_trash.php

    Inside boxes marked "broken" and "broken glass," she found a morass of Urban Outfitters novelty items: a disco ball, notepads, an iPod stereo system, a hamburger phone, paperbacks, headphones, hats, calendars, posters, silly home decor items, and many many cheap sneakers, Keds-style canvas ones, neon-colored Nikes, some boots.

    ha about the bit where the woman says the box marked "broken glass" was for the salvation army.
    the box marked "incendiary devices" was destined for the local toys for tots program.

    lol they dun goofed. But I ain't even their spokesperson. Half the stuff in Tween's post would get destroyed though like the disco ball (glass) and silly items (Happy fucking birthday banners).

    Still the what to do with "dime outs" paper is not that hard to follow. UO even gives the store full release to donate to any local/national charity.

    I may have used dime outs incorrectly for the store -- I worked at UO with the person, but it wasn't a UO where my friend had the incident occur. I can't speak to UO's policy, as my job there was a temp gig. However, I could see store managers/regional managers, etc. foregoing company policy regarding donations at any of these bigger places where there is no little loss to trash things. Panhandlers wearing your clothing in front of the store does not bode well to sell the same products to customers walking in, and everyone in retail is beholden to the bottom line of the their store/region/area in the end, regardless of policy.

    nah fuck those guys. If they wanted to get rid of stuff without sending it to the Distribution Center, clothing is distribution anyway, they could have trucked it over to a Goodwill or something. I work receiving so the backroom is where I play and try to make sure things end up where they supposed to or it's my ass. Even taking trash out I see employees sometimes from other businesses, sometimes not throwing recyclables into the wrong compactor. They are about 30 feet from each other!
