Has anyone else heard this?
What store?

Seriously I'd love to know what Dallas area store is using such a nasty tactic.

I know that I am very, very late to this post, but I think I know how this rumor got started.

HSG moved the Lexicon/Mark Levinson/Revel repair facilities and their respective headquarters to Woodbury Long Island on June 1st . This was planned months in advance but kept secret. Many people were laid off, some, who wanted to come were transferred. Part of the reason is that the repair facilities were not working out well. They were centralized, for the major brands, in Bedford Mass a few years earlier when the takeover was complete. Even then (about 2002) they were dissatisfied with the results and a lot of people we laid off, a few were retired.

Well Jerry,

I guess that is good for you. You need to switch allegiances anyway and become a N.Y. Giant fan. With Brian Westbrook hurt, they are in trouble once again. Too bad because Donovan looks like his old self.
