“So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.”

For products like furniture, it's hard to see it as anything more than a promotional discount on a high-margin product.
For boats, I wouldn't bet the farm on the success of a program to encourage trading Donzis for dinghies.
