Jamie: Super 1 Produce Massacre

Jamie Lynn Morgan almost became a casualty statistic when she made the mistake of visiting Hayden Super 1 today in the midst of a produce sale. Writes Jamie: "Have you ever seen people elbowing and doing a bit of pushing to get what they believe is a discount? Now I have witnessed this in department stores over shoes, designer jeans, and the like, but have we really gotten to this point? Next thing we will hear is shopper trampled by mob trying to get a $1.00 bag of red delicious apples. It was at that table that I first started to fear for my life. Elbow to the ribs was enough to make my feet move a bit faster." Full report here.

Question: I can't figure this one out. Why would shoppers nearly stampede for discounted produce?
