With a change in pace on the home front, we asked Allan Hirsch about shopping trends over the last four months with regards to appliances and electronic equipment.  He pointed out that big sellers in the major appliance section have been cookers, dishwashers,  washing machines – and steam generated products have also sold incredibly well.  “When it comes to small appliances, vacuum cleaners, food processors, hand mixers –  and everything to do with cooking – have been big sellers. Television sales have gone from a  steady canter to a fast gallop  – along with sound systems to go with them.  People have settled into the  entertaining at home mode now and we can see that this has become a trend.” He pointed out.
