  • So same sale different name. Black Friday Sales, then its Cyber Monday sale, then you have Xmas sales, then its Boxing Day sales, then its New year sales, End of financial year sales, Jump on one leg sales. What’s the point anymore.

    • Retailers are desperate for money, so they slash profits periodically in order to try attract more customers, they haven’t been getting the sales they need to stay alive since the GFC, as people dont have as much disposable income because it all goes into housing either through rent or mortgages.
      Oh well, at least home owners FEEL wealthy with overinflated paper values for now, at the expense of everything else
