It isn’t new for women in Pakistan to go crazy over summer and winter clearance sales. We still haven’t forgotten the Sapphire sales from few years ago in Lahore, have we? the infamous catfight is etched in our memories? But we thought things would be different this year due to COVID and social distancing SOPs, but alas!
The latest beech tree sale viral video from Lahore shows the insane way women have gone crazy over sales and thrown caution to the winds, proving that there is no stopping them!
Watch the viral video below:
The ironic thing is that we see women wearing masks yet leaving no space for another human to breath, fighting over the packets being thrown by sales people right in the middle of the crowd. The women, like hawks, are ready to put their blood, sweat, tears and money in a stampede right in the middle of a pandemic, to be with their favourite joras bought at a discount.
Beechtree has an on-going ‘season end sale’ of 50% and that was enough for the ladies to go into a frenzy
Twitteratis are calling out these ‘educated’ ladies on their actions and want them to show some grace and dignity.
Netizens expressed shock and anger with a few humorous remarks here and there:
Seriously? What’s this nonsense? Then they blame government for spread of COVID. Tell me one thing is this a necessity to get a suit on sale? https://t.co/LFFtEJVDnf

اور یہ خواتین بالکل بھی کمزور فیملیز سے نہیں بلکہ اچھی خاصی کھاتی پیتی فیملیز کی ہونگی کیونکہ Sale پر بھی ان کپڑوں کی قیمت ہزاروں میں ہوگی۔۔

Bechtree really know how to control crowds

Across the world, economies and sales are shrinking but in Pakistan the sales still cause a stampede. Don’t you think brands and stores are to be held accountable as well? The stores have a responsibility to adhere to SOPs during the time of an ongoing pandemic but Beechtree failed miserably. Not only they allowed women without masks inside the stores, they were unable to control the large crowd.
This is not the first time women in Pakistan have behaved like this? Stores and brands are well aware of how easily the situation can get out of hands. Shouldn’t safety be prioritized over sales? Maybe they could have employed a little extra help.
