Up to 50% off all Woolworths stock today

By Patrick Garratt, Friday, 5 December 2008 10:11 GMT

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.
