And that includes games, apparently. The UK retailer went into administration last week, and has now announced its “Biggest Ever Sale”.
Administrator Deloitte told MCV in a statement:
“We anticipate increased footfall in the stores and have hired additional staff to cope with increased demand. Additional goods have been moved to all stores and further stock will be added in the coming days.
“There is continuing interest in the core Woolworths business and the Sale will continue whilst potential buyers finalise their plans for the purchase of the business.”
It’ll be like rats stripping a corpse. Take your shotgun.

Hilarious. According to this Intology report, running a PS3 for a year costs five times as much as running an average-sized fridge.
Australian consumer group Choice found that a 12 cu. ft. volume fridge costs $50 to run for a year, while a PS3 costs $250 per year even if it’s just switched on and not used.
The sound you’re hearing is the roar of the world’s oil and coal reserves evaporating in God’s holy fire.
