That's a great idea, but the stores in my locale purposely remove the hangers at sale time and simply bag the purchase.

Oh that's a bummer... At one of my local stores I can go in and ask for the hangers without buying anything. Last time they gave me 15 hangers :)

I think it depends on just how well the store does, managers can show superiors their cost- cutting methods with little gimmicks like that. ☺
