One of Australia’s favourite homewares brands is slashing prices to help shoppers deal with the cost of living.
Retail spending volumes have fallen for the second straight quarter as cost of living pressures tighten the household budget.
ABS head of retail statistics Ben Dorber said on Tuesday it was the largest fall in retail sales volumes – outside the Covid pandemic – since the September quarter 2009.

Better yet, the plummeting prices won’t be going up anytime soon.
