Johnny try­ing to keep the sparkle

Bray People - - News -

IN AR­CADE Jew­ellers, Bray, Johnny Joyce (pic­tured) said that while a lot of Valen­tine’s Day busi­ness is last minute he ex­pects to see a fall off from last year.

‘It’s too early to tell at this stage but at Christ­mas our trade was down 30 per cent on last year. Valen­tine’s Day is only one day while there is a whole lead up to Christ­mas so I wouldn’t ex­pect it to be as good as usual.’

He said he ex­pects the next busy sea­son for them will be com­mu­nions and con­fir­ma­tions but said that with the econ­omy the way it is at the mo­ment it is hard to tell what peo­ple will be spending their money on.
