Go to the Wairau Park Smiths City and play 'spot the customer'... fun game, you may even find one!
Not only that one. I walk past the Colombo Street shop a couple of times each week & make a point of looking into the shop as I walk past. Unless there are people at the back looking at over priced TVs or printing photos, the shop is usually completely empty of customers. That shop is easy to get to with plenty of parking right at the shop entrance.
A top or even a pretty good salesperson at Smiths will be looking around for a better job you'd think. If the staff believe the place is about to go under they will just be hanging on in the hope of picking up a redundancy package. Managers won't bother to update shelving signs & the like just the same as DSE towards the end.
