Toulouse, France (CNS) – You would think that this only happens in the movies, but apparently women really go nuts over a store’s opening. A newly opened H&M store in Toulouse, France has been swamped with overzealous shoppers when they opened their stores.
A video on YouTube shows a stampede happening inside the store when it opened its doors to the eager patrons. It was like opening a floodgate when H&M opened its doors to the women. Screams were heard, clothes were being yanked off their hangers, the patrons were pushing each other, and just about everything was a mess.
According to various reports, the shoppers’ mad dash happened during French designer Sonia Rykiel’s launch for the Swedish brand. Women, along with some men in the video, must love her and the store so much. They waited for hours at the opening of the new retailer just to get a piece of the fashion.
And to think the store wasn’t even on sale. How much more chaotic could it get if the clothes were on discounted prices?
