Storyline

Marsha White is looking for a gold thimble as a gift for her mother. She can't find it anywhere in the store and an elevator operator suggests she try the 9th floor. She arrives there to find it abandoned but a sales clerk suddenly appears and has just what she is looking for. On the way back down to the main floor, she realizes the thimble she bought is scratched and goes to the complaints department where she is told there is no 9th floor in the building. She is shocked however to see a mannequin that looks just like the woman who served her. A return to the absent floor reveals the explanation to her dilemma. Written by garykmcd

Great mood even if it doesn't make a whole lotta sense.
3 October 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Anne Francis stars as a rather odd lady who feels lost and inexplicably scared in a department store. Who she is and what is going on is not certain, but the episode did a great job of maintaining a creepy mood-even though for much of the episode nothing particularly scary is occurring. There is a pervasive sense that SOMETHING is amiss as the lady wanders about the store. Oddly, the store closes with her in it and she wanders about--going floor to floor and wondering why she cannot escape. By the end, there is of course a twist that makes sense of the last 20 minutes--but the "twist" doesn't exactly make sense--but it STILL is interesting and worth seeing. All in all, a very effective job in building the proper mood--this one might just give you the creeps--even if the end is a tad silly.
