The chaos broke out in a Stolitsa shopping centre in the city of Vladikavkaz in the south-western Russian region of North Ossetia-Alania.
Local media reported the clothing store was offering items for 1 RUB (1p) and the weekday sale generated a hefty interest.
A long queue was seen outside the shop well before the shop’s opening time.
The majority of the shoppers were female, according to local media, and the whole shop was emptied within the first five minutes.
Although the mega-sale caused major mayhem, the store promised shoppers a similar sale will be hosted in the coming days.
A video of the ordeal instantly went viral on social media, racking up more than a whopping 80,000 views in the first day.
The shocking video shows a woman snatching clothes off of a female shopper while she was on her knees on the floor.
