HUSBANDS or boy-friends who tell their wives or girlfriends they're off to the January sales in Wisbech next week won't be lying if they get discovered having a quiet drink.

For pub chain Wetherspoons has joined the ranks of High Street stores by dropping prices as it stages its own January sale.

"Pub-goers can enjoy a January sale with a difference," says Paul Kearney, manager of The Wheatsheaf Inn.

"Department stores and shops hold their sales in January, so I thought it would be a good idea to have one in the pub, too.
