For One Day, Ricky’s is Recession-Proof

Written by

At Ricky’s, people are literally lining up down the block for the chance to dress up like a Sexy Pole Dancing Race Car Driver or whatever. But hey, at least everything in the store is 50% off. (Inevitable November 1st sinking feeling of regret is still the full price.)

More disbelief in the form of commentary and pictures after the jump.

A girl in the line was overheard on a phone: “Normally I wouldn’t be caught dead here.  But mom’ll be proud I saved money.”

Bwog concurs.

    I was really hoping nobody would shop there so they would go out of business and maybe we'd get something decent instead.

    Guess I underestimated the skankiness of CU students.

    What happened to the costume contest? Seriously, I have a rock-solid costume. Also, let's not under-estimate the amount of effort this took to type grammatically. Bring me costume contest!

    Just like the economy in which experiencing sickness what we called financial crisis making it tardy and incompetent in performing good economic activity. Traditionally, sports are one of the precious few areas that are recession-proof, but then again, this is the worst recession in the last 30 years. The other major sports organizations have made some cuts, especially front office and marketing staff, which the NFL, NBA, and MLB have done, whilst the NHL (the least profitable of the big four) has instituted a hiring freeze. In the wake of all this, the Arena Football League has suspended operations for the 2009 season, pending a further negotiation with the player's union. The owners of the league's teams, a group which includes Jon Bon Jovi, a partial owner of the Philadelphia Soul, held a mass conference on Sunday night to discuss a plan of action. 2009's season will not be played whilst the business model goes under intense review and restructuring to make the sport more profitable. The AFL should return to full operations in 2010. Click here to read the full article yourself on the payday loan money blog at personalmoneystore.com.
