Some years ago I was walking through the arcade with my then two year old son. I was stopped by a salesperson who asked me if I'd had an accident in the past three years. I pointed at my son and asked ' does he count?'.

When i've had cold callers asking me that in the past i've replied "No, but I can arrange one for you if you want" and then put the phone down.

None were in there this afternoon either. It does go a few weeks without them and then they are back.

No salesmen at all in The Arcade this week. Just a man with a jewellery stall and a poppy seller. Wonder if the management have read this thread .?

To be fair, I"ve been going to Hillsboro for many years, I like Hillsboro, much better than town.. in all that time I"ve never been hassled by salesmen, seen the odd one, and I just say no thanks mate.. no problem for me.
