Swedish Shoe Sales Boom

Despite the continuing redundancies announced in some of the leading Swedish companies because of the sluggish economy, the nation’s shoe shops are jubilant over another month of increased sales - another 5% this time.

The extra sales are explained by the fact that those who are not unemployed have the money to go shopping - and that warm spring weather so far encourages many to go out and buy new shoes.
