I’ve taken to mooching in town instead of living the life of a recluse, after spending an entire week without leaving the house I thought I better rejoin the human race!! Anyway, my mooching and window shopping was interrupted by the obligatory bright red sale signs, declaring that it was time for mid-season sales. Is it just me, or are the mid-season sales ridiculously early?! I mean the Christmas sales draaaagged on til the February, and barely a month on the sales have started again!
Retailers are no doubt having a hard time, trying to succumb people to part with their hard-earned cash, as they keep an eye on profits and their bottom line. I’m not buying this strategy, it didn’t make much of a difference last year and it won’t this year! More long-term thinking is needed, rather than a constant sales culture that they are breeding. It just devalues their non-sale offer! Oh and while I’m lamenting the state of the retail industry, can someone please give me either a job or money so I can take advantage of the current situation?! Well, someone’s gotta help support the economy 😉
Most high street retailers already have their sales on, except H&M, Topshop and New Look. Here are my top picks from Oasis & Warehouse (good quality = good investment!) if you’re feeling particularly patriotic and want to do your bit to help our retailers! Oh and Miss Selfridge has some awesome pieces on sale, particularly denim.
