Last-minute school shopping
Parents thronged Bridgetown yesterday to get in last-minute back-to-school shopping but said they were spending less than in previous years.
“Shopping has been hard because money is limited . . . . It’s very hard, but it’s life,” father of two Rodney Charles told the Sunday Sun as he stood in line at Cave Shepherd to purchase school uniforms.
Suzette Clarke, who was with her daughter Ke-zie Humphrey, made a similar point, adding that many parents were depending on sales.
“Sometimes people get money late and sometimes they were waiting to see if they get any discounts, so they could get more. For example, if I came before today I wouldn’t get as much, but now I can buy two for the price of one, which is great,” she said. (TG)
