Silver Lining In Form Of Sales

It’s been a bit quiet here on the SnapShop blog for a while, and I guess you could say it has a little to do with the attitude of the retailing world at present. Its looking pretty gloomy, I suppose; there’s this ‘credit crunch’ that everyone’s been talking about and fears of a recession, but as a consumer you also have to remember there’s a glowing silver lining at the end of this very large black cloud…in the form of the SUMMER SALES!
Some kudos has to be given to the retailers out there who are helping us mere mortals in the wake of all this horror; Topshop, Argos, John Lewis, Next and River Island all have tip-top sales going at the moment which I personally have hit with a vengeance. Netto, Asda, Tesco and Morrisons have blessed us with their insistence on price wars and even an oil company or two have given in and lowered the prices of their barrels. So you see, its really not all bad. I’m not saying its great either, but honestly, turn off your BBC News Alerts for Business and Politics and the world seems like a much happier place at least for a while; sometimes, no news is good news and sometimes avoidance IS best.
