That was used as a trick to lure customers into shops. Some shops would actually have ONE item on offer.

Meanwhile that's illegal, there are regulations on how much you must minimally have (location: Krautistan). At least the larger chains seem to have stopped that trick. I once even got an item brought into the shop I was from another (had to wait a couple of hours and come back to pick it up).
