PC World seem to have the biggest scam going in the Christmas sales.
According to their extensive advertising over the Christmas period, PC World were offering laptops for some £200. Given this I popped down with an associate to a local store (I won't say which one in case it gets any of the staff into trouble)
One of the things bosses cannot do, no matter how hard they try is ensure that all their staff are delivering the corporate message, all of the time. An honest worker told us the truth. Yes there are laptops for £200 - but only 10 per day, and people had been queuing up for them at 0430. They had gone virtually as soon as the doors opened. It is a bit like those cut price train trickets that are advertised but virtually impossible to buy - only available between 1130 and 1215, on days of the week that do not have a Y in them, and only sold to people standing on one leg whilst using the internet in Ulverston.
The PC World scam is of course designed to get you in their stores, then hope you leave with something anyway. Like a lot of things, it should be illegal, but is not. So much for the law "protecting us" from unscrupulous businessmen.........
