Darrell Lea Frenzy
Yesterday the news hit the front pages, of Darrell Lea the iconic sweets company going into voluntary administration. The announcement quickly reverberated across the Australian public prompting some campaigns etc on the internet.
So today I went to the city store in Sydney on Kings Street and George to purchase something small as a kind gesture.
Was I impressed at the response from the people. The store had a massive queue and people were grabbing sweets like they are stock piling for nuclear Winter. It was humorous to see the staff being overwhelmed with the demand, while scrambling to get more stock out from the storage room.
A co-worker bought about $90 worth of chocolates as well.
So hopefully the business stays on its legs.
