Thanks to our intrepid photographer (you know who you are) for these latest pictures from Chester:
50% off, according to the sale notices; but would you pay as much as half-price for books in this condition? Personally I’d say even asking 50p each would be a bit much; but perhaps greetings cards are more reasonably priced?
The only other information on the receipt is a signature, which I’ve cropped off the bottom. I’m told that the staff were very apologetic and are evidently doing their best under the circumstances: no blame attaches to them; just plenty of sympathy needed…
Now, what’s this rumour I hear of a sudden bout of stocktaking in all the shops?
