Lumme! It seems that Ramsgate's going to get another pound shop! Or a '99p Store' to be more precise.
According to the excellent yourfannitinnit, the new shop opens in what used to be Woolworths on the high street next Tuesday. With a six figure annual rent to pay, they'll have to sell an awful lot of sticky crap to keep their heads above water. But chain boss Hussain Lalani reckons: 'The public are flocking to our stores and when I say public I mean that in the widest sense.' Er, no, not sure what you do mean there, Hussain. Still, it's 30 new jobs created, so that's not to be sniffed at.
And with a spare mill to invest following the surprise success of my latest blockbuster, Smell the Profit for the Polish Cheese Board, I might just toddle down there and buy a million gross of plastic clothes pegs and attach one to each nipple, and, if I'm feeling really adventurous, clamp another pair to the old Eastcliff Golden Globes. Then all I'll need to do is find somewhere to stick the other 139,999,996!
