A mob of shoppers gathered outside George R. Brown Convention Center Friday looking for good deals. But many came away disappointed.[SIGN UP: Get headlines and breaking news sent to you]

People started lining up at 7am outside the GRB to get into a super liquidation sale. Doors opened at noon, and customers say the items inside were not as advertised. Organizers promised big deals on laptop computers, clothes and other merchandise.

"You can find better stuff at the flea market -- big items -- than what you're going to get over here," said shopper David Urrego. "Laptops are used, scratched... Maybe desktops -- they're OK, too, but the prices are not even worth it."

We left a message with the convention center workers, asking for comment on this story, but got no reply. The super liquidation sale runs through Sunday.
