Crazy, but a little quieter

RETAILERS in Grafton reported good trade in yesterday's Crazy Day promotion, though some said it wasn't quite the strength of previous years.

Managing director of the company that owns Retravision, Grafton, Elton Cummings, said turnover had been marginally down on last year but the store's profit was higher for the day.

He said the store offered discounts of 10%-50% specifically for Crazy Day but the specials would continue through to Sunday.

Mr Elton said the Grafton store had seen a 30% increase in turnover since it's shopfront widening about 12 months ago.

"That's in a tough market ... I'm sure we've hurt our local competition but we've also reduced people from travelling to Coffs Harbour," he said.

Low Pressure Surf Company owner Noel Smith said purchasers of "big ticket items" weren't about like they were in previous years but there was still plenty of customers.

Rachel Busch, from Rockmans, said she'd had a very busy morning helped along by the store's Crazy Day merchandising and specials.

Kylie Ada from Grafton Fast Photos said it was definitely "less crazy" than last year.

More4Men trader Tim Ellem said the day's trade was far from previous years in which buses were brought in, along with live entertainment and DEX-sponsored tradesmen to put up signage. But, he said, the day's heat may have drawn people to Grafton Shoppingworld.
