VICTORIA’S SECRET WAGES WAR ON MEN:
A former Victoria’s Secret employee told us that workers at her Chicago-area store were trained to treat male customers differently from female ones.
“The general feeling about men is that they would buy anything in order to get out of the store as quickly as possible,” the worker, who wished to remain anonymous, told us. “That means they would spend more money.”
While workers tell women about promotions like 5 for $25 panties, they are more likely to sell men full-priced merchandise, the worker said.
Gender profiling. Can a class-action suit be far behind?
