Squishies attract shoppers to the newsagency

We are loving squishy sales. We have now re-stocked five times and there is no slowing up. Being in a high-traffic shopping centre helps as does having the colourful range on the lease line as well as the certificates showing the health and safety checks undertaken by the factory supplying the product.

Attracting new traffic is a challenge for any shop. Squishies is a category that is working for us. The shopper often shops beyond this category.

    You may want to be careful, aparently there are suggestions they may not be as safe as claimed:

    Asbestos in building products, lead in plumbing fittings, combustible cladding, compromised honey, carcinogenic chemicals in squishies.

    This shit is getting old, if we cant trust the integrity of Chinese products then the government needs to put in comprehensive testing on all Chinese made products and charge the importers for the cost of doing it.
