Woolworths renamed Wiiworths

In an effort to promote Wii Fit, UK-based retailers Woolworths (famed for pick n mix) have temporarily renamed themselves Wiiworths and plastered stores with advertising banners.

How's that for motivated salesmanship?

My local Woolworths just closed down after like 30/40 years, reminds me of my mum, last thing we ever did together was go to Woolworths Christmas shopping. A week later bless her she was in the mushroom kingdom in the sky.

In woolworths we don't have the banners because our shop isn't really big enough, but we all had to wear awesome Wii fit t-shirts which we got to keep. I have 2, selling one on ebay, they are going for 10-20. Anyway found out about this from our company newsie ages ago, some of them even have demo sets to try out.
