Spanish shoppers learning thirft
Thrift has become the new way of doing things in Spain, where the economy is going through a second recession in two years, a retail observer said.
Spaniards are learning how to find bargains and make do with items they own for longer, Euronews reported Saturday.
“Everything’s changed,” car salesman Angel Rodriguez said. “Six or seven years ago we sold four or five new cars for every used car. Now, it’s the other way around.”
An increasing number of people are learning how to shop for bargains, including buying secondhand goods, the newspaper said.
As a result, secondhand stores are thriving, while standard retail outlets are suffering, Euronews said.
