Not sure Gideon, I really doubt it'll be waterproof. But as jackets go, I'd say it's a bargain for that price.

Who owns Sweatshop ?

Word is that Sweatshop staff get a £3 bonus for every pair of Karrimor shoes they sell. I wonder how that will affect the statement:-

"What may surprise you is the length we go to, to help you find your perfect pair of running shoes."

Suprise? Yes, very.

At Sweatshop, if you buy off the website and then return to the store, the store takes the hit. 

So with littlehobblers order, mail order looks good because they sell 4 pairs, the shop would have the value of the returned shoes deducted from the weekly sales figures.

But of course the Area Manager sees the fact that the customer has had to come into the store to return the shoes as a selling opportunity.
