Has anyone left their house to go to any "sales"?
Now I haven't been to a major city, however the past couple of days have been in major high street stores and not really seen any bargains.
HMV, cheaper online....Zavvi in administration and no less on prices than before xmas, WHSmiths....same prices as online or more expensive...Supermarket deals not that impressive, Tesco clothing "upto 70% off" yet most only 1/3rd saving, George clothing in Asda "upto 50% off" but only on certain clothing, very limited.
Comet, Currys etc etc....cheaper prices to be had online. Wholesalers Makro....overpriced as always.
The only real bargain I have had is a nice wool rug half price in Dunelms sale.
So what is everyone elses opinion of sales on the High St? Has online deals what I am used to expect from being a regular member of HUKD tainted my judgement, or are the days of High St shopping numbered with the influx of being able to buy cheaper online? What is the future for our High St stores if they cannot even in a sale match the prices of their own web operations?
Thoughts and opinions everyone?
