First, we brought you firsthand reaction (it was mixed) to the new Michael Jackson perfume line, Magic Beats. Now we take you behind the counter to see how Unwind, Heartbeat and Wildfire are selling at some department stores where the fragrances are carried:
Jessie Childers, manager, JC Penny in Downey: "Wasn't selling, so I returned it to the company. I needed room for other items."
Betty Larsen, manager, Lakewood JC Penny, did likewise: "I felt that the perfume was aimed at younger people and we don't have that kind of clientele."
Long Beach Target saleswoman Sheri Adams: "It's highlighted as a 'New at Target' item, so it's still on a trial basis. People are rummaging through the display but it's not really selling."
