It’s sad that Whitcoulls is in trouble but as an avid reader who likes both books and money, I don’t reckon it should come as any surprise.
I make an effort to support local businesses where possible, even if they are a squidge more expensive, which is why Play It Again gets my music-buying custom. However, Whitcoulls isn’t a singularly southern business and the books on their shelves are a bit higher up the price scale than those found at a certain large red building in town. You know, the one where everyone gets a bargain.
Most people are feeling the pinch in this not-so-friendly economy so being able to save a few bucks is an attractive proposition.
