Wow. We found "the guy." The guy who takes going out of business sales to a new level. As you may know, here at Rug Rag, we really don't like "this guy". "This guy" is Cyrus Hassankola and he has been travelling the world helping businesses sell more rugs, by hosting fake going out of business sales. Well the good news is that he has now settled down in Dalls, Texas with his new store, appropriately named "Going Out of Business." He got away with this for a while, but for the time being has to change the name of the store to "Cyrus Rug Gallery." He is still contantly holding liquidation sales as well as fire sales.
Many of you probably know our feelings towards the never ending going out of business sale, and this guy has just taken it too far. A recent poll shows that 72% of 1,000 consumers have haggled in the past year, where the previous average has been 31%. The recession has clearly had an impact on how customers in the U.S. are shopping, but this guy making it seem like his rugs are way more discounted is super sketchy.
However clever you are sir, we know your little tricks, and we don't appreciate them one bit...hall of shame time Mr. Hassankola.
