Battle of Ikea: 20 hurt as frenzied mob fights over £49 sofas on opening night:

"'There were people diving on sofas and lying on them and others pulling them off with their feet. There were people tugging at two different sides of the same sofa and shouting 'mine, mine'. It was just horrible. People were going crazy.'

A 50-year-old woman, who did not want to be named, said she had managed to get a sofa into a trolley and was waiting in the check-out line when three younger women wrestled her for it."

Czechs aren't the only ones dreaming of last-chance bargains.
