Each year, the sales pattern changes. Even though the economy is reported to be not very good, I don’t really notice the difference in people’s spending power. The sales actually didn’t stop even on Christmas day. Online stores are opened 24 hours a day throughout the whole year. As with all the advertisement said, the sales start 25th December 2011.
I remember that Mee and I went to an outlet shopping place in Oxford last year and there were people queuing outside almost each of the stores, even outside a cigar gift store. On another note, it was snowing and freezing. I bet it was very different the same day this year. As the weather was a lot better, there might be a lot more people. I wonder if there will still be sales when we return from my sister’s place.
