Cabot Circus showing solidarity with hard up bristolians..

or a unofficial experiment in collective price reduction?
'50% Off Everything, Everywhere, Everyone' reads the voucher that was posted through the door today.
Could Cabot Circus really be offering credit-crunched bristolians 50% off everything?
On closer reading all is explained - "The advertised price of goods under UK law is only an offer - called an 'invitation to treat'. It is legal to negotiate. You may get better discounts if you talk to the manager as part of a large group offering to pay the same price."
50 % off everything,everywhere,everyone..
Collective price reduction has a long and noble history, but maybe it's also a way for people to respond to seemingly endless price rises especially as real wages (but not profits) are barely keeping up. So maybe print some of your own vouchers :

and gather some friends and see whether 50% off (or more?) means you can actually afford to take away some of the shiny items on display rather than stare listfully through the windows.
Rumour has it that people are doing this on saturday
Prepare to take back what you're owed
