Dixons Chief Warns Of 90's Style Meltdown


Recommended Posts

John Clare, the chief executive of Dixons, warned yesterday that he saw no respite for the retail sector, which appears to be heading for a meltdown to rival the consumer slowdown of the early Nineties.

I'm just glad tho, cause Kirsty said that we had low interest rates and low unemployment, so everythings ok then!

Well, to be quite frank, I don't think many people would miss Dixons on the high street. Bunch of losers.

Isn't Dixons that garish place next to the Vodafone shop (wtf??) you go to so you can touch the product you're about to order online while ignoring the spotty sales resistant? They're rubbish. Comet is worse though.

On - line trading is replacing these sheds.

A new high street business model is required that needs to cater for non - on - line buyers.

That means old ladies, tramps, chavs etc. This will mean old fashioned 'pile it high', sell it low, non glitzy outlets. You will need a 'ca$h converters' type feel, bit low - fi, bit 'tricity bendix' (if u know what I mean').

Anyone fancy setting up our first branch? You will need a clean driving license, spots, a dank suspicious body odour and able to speak fluent chav.

My young cousin puts - on a 'wigger chav' accent for those of you that know what I mean. He says 'whagwon' as a greeting. This is translated thus; 'What Go On'. In other words 'How Are You'. ;)

I think that some of you are missing the point here.

Dixons isn't just that little shop on the local High St that nobody ever goes to since Currys opened at the retail park.

Dixons ARE Currys....oh and PC World...and The Link too.

This post means that sales are down on mobile phones (every chavs must have), PCs and the hardware/software required to run them, and almost all household electrical appliances from kettles to white goods.

If people can't even afford Currys (always lowering prices!) then the economy really is in deep shit!

:blink:

last time they did that to me i walked off - they are overpriced, particularly the pc stuff and not just them - just bought the gf a camera for £465 from Amazon - £700 in Jessops and they wonder why their sales are down - and when they say down, from what level? - the grossly inflated level they have become used to for the last 4 years? - it would be interesting to see if their most recent level of sales is greater than year 2000 plus inflation - i would bet it is
