Doom, gloom!

Here we go again – another doom and gloom merchant! ‘The whole town has gone dead’ (Midhurst and Petworth Observer, October 18) – oh no it has not!

Many traders are doing very well, as are we.

The right products, the right service and the right prices always bring in the customers.

People who shop in Midhurst are not fools, and soon see that those shops where the staff look bored and uninterested – or worse still, are just stood outside their premises smoking – may perhaps not be the successful ones.

There are many firms like ours who will tell you that, while you will never get rich trading in Midhurst, it is perfectly possible to trade steadily with no boom and definitely no bust.
