Yesterday was a bizarre shopping day according to the papers
apparently there were hundreds of thousands of people out shopping in the morning but by 2pm, streets were empty and roads were deserted. Even the M25, the legendary Road To Hell (according to Chris Rea) was empty.
It really was a day of two halves.
The morning was busy. the sales of large screen TV's, lager, champagne, wine, pizzas, sausages chicken drumsticks and Ice Cream went up!
At Bluewater in Kent, shoppers began queuing at 8am, an hour before the stores opened. By 2pm it was empty save for a single shopper.
Imagine being the only shopper in Bluewater! Every shop you went in, you will be pounced on by eager shop assistants. Anf then all the store detectives would follow you around, because there would be no-one else.
How would you feel if you were the only shopper in Bluewater?
