The final death toll from Poundlands ‘Black Friday’ event has been confirmed today. It took search and rescue teams 3 days to recover all the bodies from underneath the mountain of reduced items, which collapsed at 4pm on Friday 24th November.
The ‘10% off everything’ deal Poundland were running for the event, saw a record number of Britains’ finest flocking to the store to grab themselves a bargain.
One witness claimed it was “like a scene from the ‘Walking dead”, except there was more biting going on”
Store manager, Roland Quiff, quoted;
“They were like animals!, more so than usual. We only knocked 10% off as our margins are pretty tight but people were literally clawing at each other to grab multi packs of quavers and LED light bulbs.
Customer, 86-year-old Margaret Thornton added;
“I only went in to stock up on food for my 7 cats but before i even made it to the aisle I was thrown into the biscuit section and punched in the head by a foreign looking lady wearing a sombrero! “
The store will remain closed until further notice as police investigations are still ongoing.
Staff have also been advised to attend self-defense classes in preparation for the boxing day sales.
