    Not at the one near me….I pluck Ye olde towel out and collapse the whole stack. Hence my user name among other trespasses :D

    Its probably a facing tool. All stores have to make it appear that the shelves are as full as possible. They were probably out of that towel color.

      Except you can see a couple rows over there are two other stacks as with foam underneath as well.

  3. anon says:

    They have incredibly tall ceilings, I bet those are only at the top where customers can’t reach. It looks better than empty racks, and it’s cheaper than having way more stock than you can sell sitting there getting dusty. Funny stuff.
