Winter is coming
THE change of seasons can be perilous for national companies pushing out their stock and co-ordinating their advertising. There’s nothing more frustrating than suffering a plugger blowout and not being able to replace them because the shops are stocking nothing but ugg boots. Bunnings is the latest to fall victim — the hardware chain has been advertising a sensational discount on bathroom heat lamps in Darwin where it’s still 33C.
Razor wire frowned upon
