Quote:I made a few enquiries and have ascertained the following sale information- Harvie and Hudson- 27 Dec to end Jan, all items reduced. Cordings-27 Dec to end Jan, various sale items and reductions. James Smith and Sons- a sharp "No, WE do not have sales Sir" Kilgour- 8 Jan to end Jan. Gieves and Hawkes-27 Dec to end Jan. T&A- 28 Dec to end Jan. New and Lingwood- 17 Dec to end Jan. Benson and Clegg- 2 Jan to end Jan. Ede and Ravenscroft- 27 Jan to end Jan, 20% off, including suits. Shipton and Hennage- no sales planned, although situation under review. Geo F Trumper- no sale. Taylor's of Old Bond Street- 27 Dec to end Jan. Hackett- 27 Dec to end Jan, various items, up to 50% off. I have put end Jan, as many of the staff where unsure exactly how long the sales would last, and have made, a guess based on previous years. Of course the sale stock is limited and early attendance is best. On a personal note, the range of staff friendliness was also varied, with Ede and Ravenscroft being the most friendly, helpful and polite, with honourable mentions for Cordings and Harvie and Hudson. The others were all acceptable, although many seemed to find it a chore to answer the telephone and also surprisingly seem to employ foreigners only.
