Photo-a-day 349: Are you ready for Easter?

20121215-101218.jpg

It seems that WHSmith have started their Easter campaign. Depressing, isn’t it? And I would (perhaps naively) have thought that reminding consumers of another retail-driven spending spree around the corner would depress Christmas spending.

But with a mere 106 days left for customers to get their hands on some themed chocolate, who can blame them for trying?

Photo-a-day 348: Tesco’s alcohol

20121214-211249.jpg

I’ve complained about Tesco piling up alcohol at the entrance before, as it really doesn’t strike me as responsible marketing. But today, the display was the biggest I’ve seen. I struggled to take a photo – as you can see – that captured the amount of alcohol there was on offer.

It’s interesting that Asda agreed in 2011 to stop this kind of thing, and Morrisons has started putting fruit and veg offers at the front of their stores, yet Tesco still persists with an attitude of pile-them-remarkably-high and sell-them-remarkably-cheap when it comes to alcohol.

Photo-a-day 346: Bargin!

Spotted in Sunderland earlier today whilst completely lost! I always get lost when I go to Sunderland city centre… it’s as if they’ve not yet discovered directional signage for pedestrians!
