    Default Poundland sells 40,000 engagement rings ahead of Valentine's Day

    "Some say it with flowers, others with chocolates - but it seems an increasing number of us are showing our affections with rings bought from Poundland.

    The discount retailer told the BBC it had sold almost 40,000 engagement rings ahead of Valentine's Day this year, nearly double last year's tally.

    The £1 "Bling Rings" and "Man Bands" are meant to be used as "placeholders" for proper rings, it said.

    But one analyst described such promotions as "increasingly desperate".

    Spending on Valentine's Day reached around £853m last year, up 7.8% on 2018 figures, according to the research firm Savvy. And unsurprisingly retailers are looking to cash in again this year. "

    Bah! What happened to 99p Stores? Not sure I want to splash out a £1 on a ring, sorry Ugly Betty. It's the thought that counts.

    They're panic buying because the WTO tariffs will put them up to £1.40 next year.
    On Desolation Boulevard, they'd light the faded lights.....

    They’ll be too busy hunting rats to mind a strange celebration...
