Gawd, is it nearly that time of year yet again. Just as we get over that Christmas malaise and the bonkers clearance period, off we go heading full speed to the next major retail event. The evil that is Valentines Day. Its not that we are against love between people, its just this bloody awful heart motif makes our skin crawl. Why oh why cant the retail industry think of something a little more interesting and something less ordinary? We are scouting around trying to find something a little more innovative but there really is no hope, is there?
