The news yesterday apart from the usual fighting in distant lands was that retailers are getting the jitters about their profits so are starting the New Year sales in the Autumn!
It is obvious to me but obviously not to anyone else that now we have exactly the same shops selling exactly the same things with only five miles between stores its no wonder their sales are down. We as consumers can only have so many changes of clothes a day and how many times a year do we need a new bed or sofa?
There should be planning laws to make these big stores and some of the fashion shops and maybe even the supermarkets have only one outlet per 50 mile radius. Sales would be up and we wouldn’t have to put up with trashy unwanted items in the bargain bins.
There is too much of everything and too many choices these days lets start streamlining our lives and we would all be better off.
