|Open before Xmas?|
Having said that I've got to confess that having seen the increase in shoppers at the weekend I've started attacking the challenge (both online and in person) - sometimes though I find that shopping early means I still get caught up in the later activity too.
|Christmas tree and stalls in Broadway centre|
Ealing's shopping centre is home to a Christmas market and as well as a tree there are decorations on the high street and in the Broadway centre, Festive celebrations mean good business for bars and restaurants too.
I expect the Pho Saigon in Bond Street W5 will open soon to take advantage of this - it'll be interesting to see if they feel the need to start with a 50% opening reduction on their food menu as is becoming increasingly the case in the sector.
[It'll be interesting to see how it performs against nearby Pho in New Broadway]
