Johnny trying to keep the sparkle
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.
