Christmas glitters blow the gloom away

Despite rigorous budget cuts that lots of families have experienced this year, it seems that Christmas lights are giving Cardiff’s shoppers the urge to forget the crisis for a while.

According to a manager at Marks and Spencer, Christmas items are selling like hot cakes since the shelving has been done.  Chocolates, gifts and greeting cards are the best-sellers here as well as at BHS where they have registered about 50% more sales of Christmas items compared to last year. This success is also due to a better quality and enhanced design of this year’s Christmas essentials, say BHS’ shop assistants.

However, managers remain prudent and they say Christmas period will be “challenging” for them.
