    It's a funny world where "let's scrap OAP subsidies and let them fend for themselves" is considered being on the left.

    Also theres usually a resident caretaker who checks that the residents are ok and the houses may be adapted to make life easier for the elderly.

    Income-based discounts aren't taken up by everyone entitled to them because of stigma.

    No not that. I was able to find it though.

    In 2012, JC Penney tried doing away with sales and instead instated "fair and square" pricing. It didn't work out.

    I was just joking remembering those stupid rollback ads like hey check our everyday low prices! Walmart still has sales too though. I find Kohl's to be the most ridiculous. Nothing is ever regular price and Kohl's and they always have monthly % off your entire purchase coupons. But then on your receipt it says guess what you saved 99% today! cus they base it off the original retail prices that nobody pays. In reality you might save like 10-20%. Still nice clothing for cheap but it's a marketing trick that everything is always on sale.

    Also kind of funny, those My Pillow ads that used to always show a sale where it was 2 for $49 or whatever, well they got hit by the fcc or whomever regulates that stuff for advertising a sale on their pillows when it was actually always that price. The deal was the regular price. So they had to change their ad.

    Everything I get from Walmart seems to break, so I've stopped going there. :lol:
