+ + + Royal Wedding Will Be Bank Holiday + + +

So much for the “austerity wedding” – any profit made from tourism and tea-towels is going to wiped out by the loss of a day’s trading on April 29th.

UPDATE: As one of Guido’s more sane and literate commenters points out:

“For a heck of a lot of businesses, Friday April 29 would normally have been the last business day of their financial year. What with Good Friday being the week before and the Easter Monday holiday on 25th April (as well as the holiday on Monday 2nd May), a lot of people will be trying to avoid working for the entire week after Easter. A lot of businesses are going to lose the whole of their last week’s trading for the financial year.”

Seems this was all planned rather well.
