Just can't wait for the next Jan 26

Our cities already have malls with multi-storied car park, shopping trolleys, multiplexes, escalator & capsule lifts, drive-thru food outlets and Starbucks clones. A Thanksgiving-day type sale was missing though.

On January 26, 2006 BigBazaar's Mumbai stores saw an unprecedented foot-fall (not foot ball) for it's sale. The resulting chaos, traffic jams forced the closure of the store. If this event is planned better (I'm sure it will be), then Indian consumers may get their own Thanksgiving day sale. Imagine how much fun it'd be - to queue up all night outside a store and madly run to buy stuff at throw away prices.
