As photographs of the wreckage of Notre Dame are revealed showing how the roof has been destroyed at the world famous tourist attraction
Sports Direct boss Mike Ashley has made an offer to buy Paris and arrange a fire damage sale with up to 70% off.
The news comes as it has been announced that a Sports Direct warehouse is set to close in Wigan. Despite this news, a 49.2% increase in annual revenue, taking total sales to £4.7 billion has been announced. 56 stores have opened across Europe in the past year and 39 more expected to open this year.
There may have been a few more stores than that but the person who ran that department was on lunch and the person covering only worked Saturdays.
Meanwhile Paris has run into problems in recent weeks with weekly protests due to the rise of fuel tax escalating to riots across the city.
Mr Ashley was made aware that the Yellow Vests were to blame and he will not be stocking the item, although there is a mustard coloured Lonsdale top that is proving quite a popular item, it’s in the running department, next to the giant mugs.
The retail billionaire was recently left disappointed when his plans to seize control of Debenhams hit the rocks.
Now he has his sights set on bigger opportunities by making an offer for the French capital. A spokesman told us “The French are notoriously grumpy and unwilling to help, they would make excellent retail staff.
The News Dump contacted Sports Direct for a statement. The person we contacted spoke into a walkie talkie, told us someone would be out to help us shortly. We waited 30 minutes before going next door to JD Sports.
