That didn't sit too well with what Murnin said was hundreds of elderly women who wanted to get their hands on a dozen.
"They were fighting - fist fighting - over eggs," he said. Police were called out to the scene to break up the fighting, but the women wouldn't leave.
"I've never seen anything like it," Murnin said, "all these 50-, 60-, 80-year-old women fighting over eggs."
A Chinatown Walgreens has a bit of egg on its face after a sale on eggs caused a bit of a riot Tuesday morning, according to a witness at the scene.
