The pre Christmas sales push is full gallop. Personally I’m a bit ambivalent about Black Friday, Cyber Monday et al. As a both a retailer and as a customer, I’m keen on a ‘good deal’ but all the heavy discounting is very tricky for the small independent retailer whose margins can’t accommodate big price reductions and who don’t have the volume of sales to counterbalance.
Many of our suppliers are small designer makers and/or small businesses who in turn support community projects. They feel under pressure to join in the mass discounting but isn’t necessarily good for their business or the communities they support. I notice that this year Fat Face are Not Discounting but Donating. So by shopping with them a proportion of their profits will go to local charities…..interesting….
