3 Mistakes To Avoid When Shopping Online

Posted on July 19, 2016 By

One of the major advantages of the internet is the ability of shopping at the comfort of your home. While online shopping comes with its perks, you need to be careful for you to get the most from it. Here are 3 mistakes that you should avoid making:

Buying from unknown sites

Not every site that posts products is genuine. There are plenty of scam sites that are out there to steal from you. Before you buy from a site do a due diligence and research about the site. If it’s a new site and you have never heard about it, carefully go through the homepage and you will be able to tell whether the site is genuine.

One of the things that you should pay close attention to is the address and phone number. A genuine site should have a physical address and working phone number. You should even go the extra mile of calling the number and ask a question. Ask questions such as: how the company handles returns, consumer complaints and any other details that you might be interested to know.

If you are still in doubt, contact the Better Business Bureau to clear your doubts.

Seven Tips That Actually Work for Finding Bargain Antiques

Posted on July 3, 2016 By

Adding antiques to your home decor can be a beautiful way to instill an old-world charm in your home. As you shop for these one-of-a-kind items, you may not know what to look for in various pieces. Before you make any purchases, learn about these relics so you can find bargains and avoid possible reproductions.

Understand Terminology

To be considered an antique, an item must be a minimum of 100 years old. Pieces that are younger than this often have great character, but they don’t meet the criteria to be called an antique. Anything older than 20 years is known as a “vintage” piece. Collectibles might be virtually anything that is popular with consumers.

Increase Knowledge

It’s wise to learn about various facets of this subject to begin dabbling in the world of antiques. Learn about time periods and the various styles that are representative of these periods. Begin frequenting shops, fairs, and auctions to explore the wares sold in these venues. It’s fine to browse without shopping. In fact, the more you look and the more questions you ask, the greater your understanding will be of old pieces. Dealers usually love to share their knowledge with others.

How to Bring New Life (and PROFITS) To High Street Community Retailers

Posted on May 19, 2016 By

Deserted and boarded-up stores are becoming a common sight in almost every High Street across the UK. What used to be central to our very community are becoming a mere shadow of their previous status. The Government, almost in despair, has actually accepted the CRR proposal to turn many redundant shops into homes.

“According to a report by the Centre for Retail Research (CRR), published in 2013, the outlook for High Street retailing by 2018 is looking pretty bleak. Total store numbers are expecting to fall by some 22% by 2018. Community based high streets will probably see nearly 30,000 more streets closing their doors for good. How can this trend possibly be reversed? This article examines causes, and potential solution, to this major threat to our community-building High Street retail outlets. “

How did we get into to this situation? Not only has the spread of out-town retail parks become almost the norm, but the relentless increase in on-line shopping has definitely left its mark on the High Street.
