Is this the best retail gimmick ever? At JillAnne, a Manhattan stationery shop on the Lower East Side, patrons who spend $50 on greeting cards will get a free pole dance from the store owner. Our sister site Racked NY has all the gory details: "The dance doesn't come automatically, explains the single-monikered JillAnne; customers have to request it. But it does draw in crowds: "They see the cards, then they see me pole-dancing," she tells the NYDN. "So they pop their heads in and say, 'What is this?'" [Racked NY]
