Half-price Christmas: The High Street Panic Frenzy
It's time to have yourself a merry little Christmas now, as High Street panic sets off a chain of price slashes this winter for a good bargain hunt.
The first day of Woolworths going-out-of-business sale, the chain made nearly £25m, the largest single day's takings in the 99 years they were in business. Certainly some motivation for other retail stores, who are now feeling the pressure to hit their christmas targets.
As a result, a ‘battle of the bargains’ has been triggered, according to This is Money. Retail stores like Argos, Halfords, Boots, Toys R Us, Comet, Currys and B&Q are all promoting half off deals this Christmas. With Woolies' closing out, prices are being slashed by up to 50% off, and Woolworths‘ sources believe that prices will come down even more before it is all over.
