I don't blame you for not wanting to navigate the crowds,whilst in a wheelchair.

It was bad enough yesrs ago with a toddler and baby twins in a double pram.😫No online option then though.

The thought of shopping in The Trafford Centre fills me with dread, why are people so rude? 

Thankfully 99% of my customers are really nice and polite,which in turn means I will always go out of my way to help them,however long it takes.

@nefarius

No we bought from a main dealer,about 6 weeks ago.

I would not buy off eBay or a dodgy car pitch.

Fair enough. I bought two cars online. One from ebay and the other from trademe, in NZ. Neither were available from a dealer. @karenyates

@mariomariott

Going on the way home is great cause it saves time and fuel (if driving).

My problem with it is,if I go after work and im hungy,then I spend so much more.☺

The cash idea is a good one,if we would all set a budget and not go over,we'd all be a lot better off.👍

@karenyates another reason why i prefer to shop instore is because going out to shop in towns and retail parks creates jobs where as online shopping is killing the high street and there is a reduction in jobs

 

A reason why i never use self checkout machines in super markets i would rather help the check out cashiers/operators who work hard for the money they earn.

I totally agree @shabazmoqsud, the high street will be gone altogether if something isn't done soon.The rents on these premises are ludicrous,if the owners lowered the rents at least there wouldn't be so many empty units,which makes the place look so depressing.☹

@karenyates where i live in scotland 15 years ago the town centre was full of retailers u could have ur pick of jobs as a student then now its all coffee shops and charities shops.  I agree with you i personally think the responsibility of rent and rates should be given to the councils not the landlords themselves and the UK and Scottish Government should lower and cap rent or rates so that even if the big franchises leave as they have been doing small to medium size local businesses can thrive.
