I rather liked this report that on the morning Woolworths collapsed into administration, a lorry carrying 200,000 copies of Take That’s new album Circus had set off for the Woolies distribution centre (which also supplied Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, Tesco & Zavvi). Cue frantic phone calls trying to get the lorry to turn back before the CDs were lost in Liquidation Hell.
Over Christmas, my Grandad recounted a similar tail from Ye Olde Days when his father was sent running across town to stop a horse and cart in their tracks en route to deliver a load to a business that had just gone under.
I suppose there’s no such thing as new news…
