Here we go again, folks – it’s discount time over at your local Thresher off-licence, with 40% off all wine. This caused a fuss, then a news story, then a backlash, as people realised that Thresher does a permanent 3-for-2 deal on wine anyway. But people… 40% off is still better than 33% off. And you don’t need to buy in multiples of three.
Personally, I’m ambivalent about Thresher just now, given the very large Gordon Ramsay stickers in most branches’ windows. I find him quite amusing generally, and his tell-it-like-it-is style is something I can really identify with. But I’m racing against him on Sunday morning (I think), at the Reading Half Marathon… and it brings out all my worst competitive instincts.
