    Default Christmas Shopping

    Went Christmas shopping this morning. The last Saturday before Christmas.

    Arrived at Cheshire Oaks, a huge shopping complex at around 11.00 am and searched for a parking space or rather decided where to park in the 75% empty car park.

    After making purchase number one, A digital camera discounted by over £70.00 I set off for Chester preparing for the nightmare traffic jams.

    I arrived around 12.00 having not dropped below 30 MPH all the way and had the pick of the car park spaces again. Less than 10 cars in the 200 or so spaces were occupied.

    I then went into Richer Sounds to listen to a Mini Hi Fi I'd seen earlier in the week. Unfortunatley the sound was poor mainly due to the supplied speakers but the guy suggested the model two up the range complete with some third party speakers. The sound was brilliant for a Mini Hi Fi and even with the addition of an Ipod docking station, the remote to work it and some quality speaker cable the price was only £22.00 more than the original unit. £40.00 off the already heavily discounted Richer Sounds price.

    I've never known the shops be so quiet so close to Christmas or the discounts be so easily available on the High Street.

    Last year Cheshire Oaks had a Park and Ride scheme. Not required anymore. We were in Liverpool a couple of weekends ago. It was quiet then too.

    I hate shopping unless I go early. Strangely I enjoy shopping in the US but I got all my presents online in November. I imagine most people use online these days having spoken to the deilver drivers who are obviously rushed off their feet.
