$1 FlipFlop Sale Follow Up

Hi! So I went to the Old Navy $1 flipflop sale, and it was amazing! They had tons of flipflops there, but they were already starting to disappear. For example, as the line snaked through the boys section, there were almost NO flipflops left! But al least in the womens section, where the line started, the bins of flipflops were still a little more than halfway full. The line literally went around like half the store. You to wait like 30 minutes, but if you got there right whem they opened, at 7, you probably only had to wait maybe 10 minutes. My mom and I didn’t get to Old Navy til like 9, unfortunatly. There is still time to go to your local Old Navy. Find one nearest you at http://www.oldnavy.com
