Personal high score

Purchases made today:
  • 5 long sleeved shirts from Marks & Spencer1, 425 RMB
  • 10 pairs of briefs from Uniqlo, 345 RMB
  • 20 pairs of socks from Carrefour: 42 RMB


Footnotes:

1. Marks & Spencer opened their China flagship store in Shanghai late last year, and made some opening blunders, including insufficient stock (due to goods being detained at customs) and suboptimal product spread. They also seemed not to realise that many Chinese men tend not to wear long sleeved shirts to work, preferring short sleeved shirts or polo tees. The result- deep discounts on their stock of long sleeved shirts, with prices starting at 69 RMB each.
