"On Friday nights and Saturday afternoons, the lines are 40 people deep. I have enough trouble tabulate ing the prices. People get edgy, waiting in line, they start hollering, 'Hurry up, hurry up, get moving.' "BY THE TIME I get to the sa]es tax, I don't know what I'm doing half of the time. Sometimes I just guess. You kjnpw, you overcharge §omebody a nickel on an item and they'll be back, mad as hell. But you overcharge them a couple dollars on the sales tax, and they don't eyen know the difference, it's going op at all the stores, with all the girls I know," At a Walden boqk store jn the Wiliowbropk piaza in Wayne, N.J., a salesman said; "People really know 1 how to use us. We get some people in here, they come in on Fridays and they buy a bes^selling book, "The Best and The Brightest,' say, for $11. They always make sure they tell" us, they 're, buying it for a gift. So whjat happens? They come back on Monday and return the book and ask for their money back, They say the person they bought it for already has it. But you know what they're doing? They're buying the book, reading it over the weekend, and returning it on Monday fpr a full re|und. That means they cap read every damn bqok on the best-seller list and not pay a dime for any of AT THE GRAND Central Shopping Plaza in Stanford, Conn-, a salesgirl at the perfume counter of Bamberger's said: "Five out of ten women who walk past the counter will stop, pick up gpjne expensive hraind of perfume, and look around to see if somebody's watching them.- Then th'ey themselves with .the package Ms The Wickes "Package Deal" offers you installation of the finest quality merchandise by authorized professional craftsmen.

But me, I've got to shopping centers have — a showcase for indoor exhibits. The exhibits have nothing to do with the stores. They just occupy mall space in the hope of patching the consumers' attention. One week, the mall may be foiled with camping eQulpment, put on display by companies which manufacture camper-trailers; the next week might be -'Circus Week," and shoppers would be greeted by clowns and other performers from a visiting circus.
