Time to hit the shops.....maybe
Marks and Spencer is to hold a second one-day, 20%-off sale on Thursday, as it tries to tempt shoppers to spend despite the continuing economic gloom.
In its second one-day sale in two weeks, M&S said many stores will remain open until midnight to enable customers to take advance of the discount.
Debenhams is also offering an "up to 20%-off" sale from Wednesday to Friday.
Online retailer Littlewoods Direct is also cutting prices by up to 60% until 23 December
