Somerset Recession Collection--few shoppers; some walkers deedsphotos
Big Discounts, Few Shoppers, Some Walkers
Shoppers were sparse today (1-6-09) although the discounts were big. The day was cold and there were nearly as many mall walkers as mall shoppers. You can tell the walkers from their shoes and their speed. Shoppers wear heels and walk at a more leisurely pace. Somehow I got the notion that the merchants thind sex sells. Few of the shoppers looked like they could wear the clothing featured on the mannequins.
Some shops allow photographers to take pictures. Others don't. Nobody could say why. The only answer I got was "company policy." Last year security guards tried to get me to stop taking pictures. None bothered me today.
