Another motor racing supporter bites the dust...

Interesting reading in the press todayHere that WOW Sight & Sound has joined the list of retail businesses to be unable to continue trading.



WOW were a high profile name too, taking sponsorships in motorsport, and in the NRL...

A sign of the times...

Their demise seems to have been primarily brought about through their exposure to the related entity for which developed property, including their own retail sites, and which previously went into liquidation.

A 7.7% dip in sales alone would not necessarily cause a viable operation to tank.

I've been talking to some people in Australia lately about the business climate. Other than the mining sector, in their opinion a lot of retail and service industries are headed for recessionary times.

I'm definitely waiting for the Aus $ to drop down again.
