Retail Reality: it's not the stuff they tell you in the boardroom

I was on a store visit exercise & visited 14 different high street branded retailers yesterday, as I was researching one of the prominent fashion brands on the high-street & understanding if/how they could improve their offer & service. It was March 18th. 12 weeks after Christmas. 84 days after Christmas.

IT’S a familiar scene. I check the opening hours on the way into the cafe. It states 5.30pm, and at 4.48pm I feel safe in the knowledge that it is still within opening hours.
