A sale made because the customer feels sorry for a store-owner that stands there forever never selling anything.
Usually made after walking past the store/stall on separate occasions and seeing zero customers every time.
Sonia: Hey, have you ever seen that guy with the hot corn in the mall actually sell any?
Andy: Nah I never have, I kinda feel sorry for him.
Sonia: Yeah same, that's why I bought some corn today, he was freakin ecstatic!
Andy: Ahh, a sympathy sale. Nice.
