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.
Bought me first sega came in there - street fighter 2 turbo - 60 pounds!!! - all my communion money can still remember the day - my first and last time in there sadly.
Oh yeah, going for bust.
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.
Myabe it was a hardware mod. the chip alone cost £20-30.
it was the going rate at the time.
You mean not have stock that you can pick up there and then, but have everything super cheap in 2-3 days time?
Yeah, richersounds on the South Quays were charging something similar too at the time.
No it wasnt , it would take 5 minutes. I beat myself up for not telling the couple.
This just in:
Business tries to make profit by providing services for money.
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.
