Why i won't be shopping at John Lewis


    (Original post by the bear)
    My point is that JL have invested so much into their position as the middle class store du choix... now they start behaving like some chav emporium trying to follow the latest fads
    It is embarrassing... like an elderly aunt suddenly boasting about her vajazzle
    I suppose though you could look at it that way. Personally I don't really see this as following a fad though - for me it reflects that many people no longer see this time of year as a Christian festival. I guess though there is a fine line between trying to appeal to a wide cross-section of society and being "PC" .
