Johannesburg, SA – Turnover is down about 30%.
People haven’t got money at the moment, and unemployment is a big factor.
There has also been a big drop in the number of foreigners shopping here – from Botswana, Mozambique and other neighbouring states. Previously they came to buy our more expensive lines. I have no idea why they have stopped coming, but I suppose those countries must also be struggling.
Last year was bad, and I think this year will be worse. – [+27 (0)11 331 1019, arvino@weblink.co.za]
