Why is half the John lewis Christmas stuff not reduced?

I was just looking through the JL Christmas decoration section online and most of it is still RRP.

Do they not normally reduce it?

Probably because Christmas happens every year and they can sell it next time.

^ what they said. If you want cheap Christmas stuff try Tesco, they were almost giving it away last night (now, they must have forgotten it comes around again soon ).

Actually they don't. JL decides on a 'theme' for each Christmas season and the stock is ordered and manufactured accordingly. Some unsold stock is returned and any remaining unsold stuff may be put out at clearance.

This is what I thought too.

It is really annoying me as there is some really nice stuff on there, that is really overpriced, but knock 50% off and I would bite!

Keep watching them. There's no rhyme or reason to how they get marked down, the buyers decide when they think the time is right.

John Lewis know that they can sell their ( usually ) over priced wares to their ( usually ) gullible customer base at any time..
