Per our Racked correspondent, the Rock and Republic sale in Culver City is going strong: "The line of kids in the parking structure was about 150 deep when I got here. The good news is they are letting fifty people in at a time. The bad news is you have to wait until the crowd clears out before they send in the next round of shoppers. So you're gonna wait at least a half hour. No bags or photograpy allowed inside. Men and womans Jeans are $80-$100, tops about $30 and about $70 or more for skirts depending on embellishments. Oh, and free parking. [RackedWire]
