London, Feb 22 (ANI): The final bag of iconic chain store Woolworths pic ”n” mix has been sold for a whopping 14,500 pounds.
The pricey 800g bag from the collapsed retail chain was sold on Internet auction site eBay.
It contains fizzy cola bottles, rhubarb & custards, strawberry bon bons, Turkish delight, white mice, pineapple cubes, and many other favourite sweets.
Woolworths store manager Ed Adams snapped up the collectors item just before his shop closed for the last time.
Proceeds from the sale will go to Retail Trust, a charity for retail industry workers.
I am really proud and excited to see such an enormous sum has been raised for the last bag of picnmix, the Sun quoted Adams, as saying.
Retail Trust is a fantastic organisation that has helped so many people like me. Being made redundant in the current climate was hard to take and knowing that there is help out there gives you comfort in these pressing times, Adams added. (ANI)
