Business Beat: Christmas bells are ringing… for the gift givers — 3 more days
There’s more shopping out there, as we promised — and Samoa News will continue to bring highlights of shoppers’ delight... as we count down to Christmas Day.
Remember: Gifts on Christmas are not an obligation, they’re a joy found in giving as much as in receiving. And don’t forget, if you’re getting hemmed in — there are caterers for that Christmas meal and festive party — there’s no shame in wanting to celebrate with your family, and not be the one caught in the kitchen again, ‘sweaty’ and ‘frazzled’ trying to bring it all together.
