    A clothing store in Gaza City named Hitler 2 is displaying mannequins with knives strapped to their hands as an homage to the upsurge in stabbing attacks on Israelis by Palestinians. Hijaz Abu Shanab, a 20-year-old shopper, said: "The name of the shop is 'Hitler' and I like him because he was the the most anti-Jewish person. I like the clothes and the name, it is fantastic."

    The Rise and Fall of the Army Surplus StoreBy Brett and Kate McKay on Oct 11, 2016 05:05 pm You’ve probably been to an army surplus store.They all look pretty much the same wherever you live. Surplus stores can be found in strip malls in the rough part of town or as stand-alone warehouse-style buildings with corrugated metal roofing and very few windows. They’re easy to miss while driving because they typically only announce themselves with a small yellow sign emblazoned with “Army Surplus” in black lettering.When you walk in, your nose is met with that distinct army surplus...

    REI recently announced it will be closed on Black Friday this year. The outdoor retail chain says it is encouraging its 12,000 employees from 143 locations to make a new tradition of spending time outside that day rather than shopping. In years past, like many other retailers, REI offered customers special deals the day after Thanksgiving. But now, REI is hoping to capitalize on the idea that a lot of people are turned off by holiday shopping around Thanksgiving. It launched an #OPTOUTSIDE campaign, encouraging the public to upload personal photos of their outdoor adventures or use photos provided by...

    A former Kentucky police officer is suing a local gun store after he shot his finger off inside the store in a case of bad gun handling vs. horrible gun handling – plus a complete lack of personal responsibility. According to a civil lawsuit, former Glasgow police officer Darrell Smith went to Barren Outdoors and asked to see a .380 caliber handgun. An employee removed the gun from under the counter and handed it to Smith without checking to see if the gun was loaded. Smith then takes the gun, likewise failing to check if the weapon was loaded, and...

    So, one of the Christmas presents I got for my wife is a wax warmer. My 6-year-old son was walking through the living room today as I was moving it and he asked, "Daddy, where did you get that for Mommy?" So I said, "What, this?" "Yes." "At the store." "Oh." He walked a little further and asked, "What store?" And I said, "A store that sells these." "Oh, okay!" and he walked off completely satisfied. My wife, who had been reading on the couch, began to laugh and said, "What kind of conversation was that?!" And I jokingly replied,...

    Time ^ | 9/23/13 | Samantha Grossman
    More than 90% — ninety percent! — of Americans throw out food prematurely, as TIME reported last week. Basically, consumers are confused by phrasing like “use by” and “sell by” and so, to be safe, they end up tossing perfectly good produce, snacks and more. In reality, food dating really just indicates when an item is at its peak freshness, not when it becomes inedible. All of this got Doug Rauch, the former president of the Trader Joe’s supermarket chain, thinking about a potential solution. And now, it seems he might have found one: a market that specializes in preparing...

    When the Seattle City Council unanimously passed a ban on plastic bags and required businesses to charge a nickel for paper bags, city leaders believed it would be better all around. "I think we've gotten to a place where it's really going to work for the environment, businesses and the community in general," Councilman Mike O'Brien said at the time. But the bag ban is contributing to thousands of dollars in losses for at least one Seattle grocery store, and questions have been raised about the risk of food-borne illness from reusable bags that shoppers don't often wash.
