'Desperate' stores slash prices for Christmas

By Harry Wallop Last Updated: 3:20am GMT 15/12/2007

Retailers are offering their biggest pre-Christmas discounts as the credit crisis takes its toll on High Street spending.
Prices are being slashed at big-name stores, including Argos, BHS, Debenhams, Halfords, Toys R Us and Boots, with 80 per cent off the cost of some gifts in a "desperate attempt" to woo reluctant shoppers.

Are you sure about this. Is it not CODS-WALLOP ?

I live in London at the moment & I ain't not seen any panic-pricing of the type you're describing.

Even when the sales come, in a week or so, I doubt it will happen.
Perhaps you're mixed up with London, Ontario !?
