eBay is here to reignite the ailing high street! Or something
It’s all going to happen in the West End of London, and for five days only fron 1st December. It’ll be a ‘pop-up shop’, which to us translates as ‘easily smashed to bits’ but never mind. Oh, and there’ll be no tills either. Shoppers will pay with their smartphones, scanning one of those psychedelic QR codes that will take them to the payment section of eBay’s website.
Oh, and the shop won’t sell any actual stuff that you can walk away with on the day. There’ll be just 200 best-selling items in the ‘pop-up shop’ and if you purchase any of them, they’ll be delivered to your home in the normal way.
So, essentially, it’ll be a souped-up internet café. Which we suspect will be easily smashed up. Thanks eBay – we’ll see you THERE!
