Oh boy was Sporting Life Markville quite an experience. My winter jacket got ripped so I went to line up for the $50 gift card/50% off to use on a new jacket. Arrived first thing at 5AM sharp in the morning, there were already 50-70 people lining up outside the mall entrance. By 5:20 line was already doubled to 150, so I was good but there goes the gift cards, right?
Nope, at 5:40ish apparently security unlocked the South entrance first instead of the South-east Entrance where we were at (closest to Sporting Life store) and someone there told another leading to a chain reaction of everyone running 100m to the South entrance to get a spot inside the mall. Whoever ran the fastest and got there first moved up, which sucks for those who actually came the earliest to line up. No idea what genius thought it was fine opening the far away entrance instead, I'm pretty sure people tripped and fell during that stampede. Then again maybe security didn't know or care. Quite literally survival of the fittest.
By 7AM the line was from front of store to mall entrance plus it wrapped around, so yea maybe 300-500 people.
The gift card doesn't state any expiry so I would assume it would last forever, but better to use it during the sale. Despite lackluster of boxing day deals this was worth lining up for
