Gorbachev also allowed these new stores where all the goods like electronics and clothes from other countries would be sold. The problem was that those goods cost so much that people could not afford them. After walking by these stores and seeing all these goods that they could not buy people wanted the end to Soviet Union. Why would you make such stores? Nothing was being sold and the stores made people angry.
Just think about it. Regular Soviet would make 150 to 200 rubles per month. Those stores sold sneakers that cost 600 rubles. Why have such stores other than make people angry?
