Many people appear to be handling the prospect of a recession by staying in eating ready meals and drinking New World wine from upmarket stores, rather than going out to eat in restaurants. Sales at John Lewis and Waitrose rose last week, where there was evidence that more Britons were attempting to save money by eating in. The company said the trend for home entertainment was strongly evident with unit sales of the ‘As Good as Going Out’ range up by 38% on last year, while revenue on South African wine rose 132% and New Zealand wine by 40%.
