“Every Penny Makes A Difference In A Credit Crunch”

Pound World went out of business because a store called 99p Stores, was selling the same products but for just 1p cheaper!

    Some people take saving money too seriously, would you cross a road to pick up a penny on the floor?

    I wouldn’t, but people in Poole, U.K do!

    Pound World went out of business because a store across the road called 99p Stores, was selling the same products but for just 1p cheaper!

    How crazy is that! I think some people are taking the credit crunch a bit too seriously.

    Here’s what the Pound World manager had to say: “It’s amazing we had to close because of a difference of just a penny!”

    Didn’t he think to just rename the shop to the ’97p or Less’ shop?

    It would have easily put the 99p shop out of business, especially when you hear what a public shopper in Poole has to say:

    “I would certainly cross the road if it meant I could get a similar item a penny cheaper, the more you buy for 99p, the more pennies you save. I have just bought six items, so I’ve saved 6p.” – Karl White

    Pound World will be reopening in a different location, under a different name, but it’s still going to be a pound shop.
