Botched offer

WHAT a shambles the ASDA Black Friday deal was.

We waited in the queue, to be told they only had six of each item on offer and that was in every store. Instead of making people queue up they should have been honest – not even the staff knew what they were doing. ASDA in Pill had a display area part with a black curtain over it, all the money spent advertising, and what a poor sale.

By one minute past eight all the items had gone and talking to people in the other stores it was the same shambles.

Do you honestly think these things are anything more than a publicity stunt.

This is the typical old fashioned sale approach. A small number of items at 50% off or whatever and the rest in reality probably the real normal price.

It gets people through the doors and most spend money
