"We did a bit better this week, partly because it's the end of the month, and partly because it's looking a bit brighter. It's been a tough year." - Zoonate Alli, partner, G. Nabee & Co., Lichtenburg, NW Province, SA. Independent, 2 stores, family outfitter.

"Friday was reasonably busy, today has been quiet, although we had expected the week to be busier because of month end. We're not yet seeing an improvement." - Yunus Osman, member, Gaby's Gear, Pretoria, Gauteng, SA. Independent, 1 store, men's and women's outfitter.

"Reasonable. I know most other people are complaining, but I'm grateful for the way things are going at the moment. Overall the year has been reasonable so far." - Zaakir Gani, Gani's Sports World, Klipfontein, Mpumalanga, SA. Independent, 1 store, sports specialist.

"Down. Very disappointing for month end. The economy has got worse and worse every year since the World Cup." - Yunus Gani, member, Gani's, Johannesburg, Gauteng, SA. Independent, 1 store, department store.

"Very bad. The first part of the year was okay, but for the past 2 months it's been down." - Jay Patel, member, Gardinia Stores, Johannesburg, Gauteng, SA. Independent, 1 store, general dealer.
