Maverick Selling of clothes

Overstocked with a large supply of men’s spring and winter coats, 

a clothier in Copenhagen, Denmark, adopted a unique sales 

scheme.  He erected a scaffolding around his store building and

customers in such droves that police were summoned.  Although

succeeded in selling all the overcoats, 1936
