The Woodburn Company Stores Outlet Mall was packed. Tour buses had disgorged hundreds of shoppers on vacation from Japan.
The vast parking lot was full of cars circling for spots, there was a long line at the restroom, and a line outside the Coach outlet of women waiting to buy purses.
At least the mannequins were calm amidst the Labor Day shopping frenzy.
