The wonder of Woolies...

Even when these failing temples of consumerism are crumbling, their administrators still resort to the tried and tested ways that retailers have hoodwinked customers with for years. All Stock Now 50% Off, reads the sign. Which will obviously get the punters in, even if the only decent thing sold out of Woolies for years has been the Pic n Mix (and even that's a bit dubious, especially when you find a child's fingernail in with the Shrimps). But there it is, the small print, covering their backs, up to. Why, in this final throw of the dice, can't we have some genuine reductions that reflect the price of the tat that's got Woolies in this state in the first place?
Board them up, knock them down, let's get back to bartering.
