The Lion Menorah Sells Out
In the days following its newfound fame, the Lion Menorah sold out on both Target’s website and in the vast majority of locations nationwide. Before selling out, it was notably marked down from an original retail price of $25 to $17.50. This was likely due to Hanukkah having started.
