Apparently in December 2007, with almost twice the sales as this year, Santa canceled Christmas. All of a sudden this January the city of Calgary experienced a certain weather event called "snow", resulting in a roughly 40% sales drop from 2008. How about that?
December usually is a month of slow sales as people focus on Christmas.Inclement weather and poor driving conditions had further driven sales below normal levels.
What about the title "prices remain stable"? That is news to me.
