Snowed in? not when you’re onlinePosted by Paul Bradley
February 3rd, 2009
Yesterday saw the UK grind to a halt under a whole 10cm of snow. Here in Leicester transport seemed to be still running, but the journey to the office took about twice as long. At least we all made it in one piece.
Not taking my usual stroll into town at lunchtime though, like I suspect many other workers in Leicester, must have hit a temporal blip in the already struggling profits of high street businesses.
I expect the flip side of this though, is that businesses who have moved shopping to the web through e-commerce will have felt a healthy raise in spending yesterday.
Today, the roads seem a little better than last night, so maybe this lunchtime I’ll walk in to Leicester to bring the high street economy back up to speed.
