Whoever was the Marketer for this shop deserve a reward!

What a clever way to drum up support and business for the company.

Absolute class act!

I remember buying my commodore 64 games in peats back in the day and they had one of their female staff on the den discussing computer games...she was a looker too.
Hope they emerge from this a stronger, leaner business.

I remember Peats selling a DVD player to an old couple and then charging them 50 pounds to have it unlocked to play american movies. I was disgusted with them after that.

Judging by the queue they had outside on saturday morning, I would say people are glad to see the shop reopened



I wonder how many people bought something or were just there for a look and some nostalgia...

Probably the same marketer Bewleys had a few years back.

Saw the 'special sale' ads for 52" Sony priced around 3k, down from 5.6k or something silly like that. Based on that alone, I don't know if they have changed much.

introduce some realistic price to compete with the online market

You mean not have stock that you can pick up there and then, but have everything super cheap in 2-3 days time?

charging 50 pounds to change settings on a DVD player so this old couple could play DVD's from the US. A service they didnt even ask for. Its not offering a service, its taking advantage.

Lets hope things have changed and they do better.

no bargain alert to see here people, move along...

plenty of support for 'irish company' making a profit and creating 'irish jobs' though.
