Just a quick post to share the Debenhams Christmas 2018 Gift Guide which I managed to pick-up while shopping in Norwich yesterday. Debenhams the department store have reported record losses and plans to close 50 stores in the New Year. It’s a shame as we do need Debenhams on our high streets, they offer a different choice to that of John Lewis, House of Fraser and Marks and Spencer. It’s worrying, however, to see this week that they are discounting many items by 20% even before the end of October, this can’t be sustainable for them or the other stores who feel compelled to then respond to this early discounting before Christmas has even started… and as I’ve said before, for me Christmas doesn’t start until after the last Fireworks on November 5th.
Over the comings days I’ll review the contents and select some of the gifts I personally like.
