Shoe Store Challenges People To Steal From Them
there’s a catch: there is a hidden problem or unexpected difficulty with an offer or situation
In the US, most big stores have a policy against employees chasing thieves. A no chase policy makes sense. The employee or the criminal could get hurt creating a legal liability for the store.
A shoe store in Paris recently invited shoplifters to steal whatever they wanted. But there was a catch. They don’t have a no chase policy. And their security guard for the day was Olympic sprinter Méba-Mickaël Zézé. Outrun the guard and the shoes are yours. There were 76 challengers and 2 were able to run home with a pair of free shoes. The public relations stunt was a clever way to promote the store ahead of the upcoming Paris Olympics.
1. The company is offering a high-paying job straight out of college, but there’s a catch: you have to relocate to a remote area with minimal facilities.
2. The bank offers a zero-interest loan for the first 12 months, but there’s a catch. If you miss one payment, the interest rate jumps to 20%.
3. They’re giving away free smartphones, but there’s a catch. You need to sign a three-year contract with no option of changing providers.
