Woolies Pic'n'Mix bows out with eBay auction

Sale of last bag to benefit charity

Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

The last bag of Woolworths legendary Pic'n'Mix has popped up on eBay, the Telegraph reports.

The last bag of Pic N Mix

The 800g bag - containing faves such as fizzy cola bottles, white mice and rhubarb & custards - was bought by Ed Adams, former manager of Woolies Petts Wood branch. He explained: "I spotted at least a bag's worth of Pic N Mix was left in the counter just before I closed the shop for the last time."

He continued: "I then decided to bag it up before contacting Retail Trust to see if it could be auctioned on their behalf. I hope the auction raises funds to go towards the Retail Trust Helpline, which is a lifeline for retail workers and their families during these difficult times."

Good show. The auction ends tomorrow, and had as of around 3pm this afternoon attracted a top bid of a tad over £360. ®

Bootnote

For the record, the bag has been "officially certified by Woolworths' administrators, Deloitte, as the last one". A spokesman confirmed: "The administrators of Woolworths PLC have consented to the sale of this item for the benefit of Retail Trust."
