‘No some-more Fifty Shades of Grey!’ urges Swansea bookshop boss
March 21, 2016 - Fifty Shades of Grey
THE trainer of a gift bookshop is anticipating to tighten a section on a tellurian book materialisation after being flooded with secondhand copies.
The EL James series, forever referred to in a media, has crushed sales annals and strike a large screen.
But a essay could be on a wall for Phil Broadhurst, of a Oxfam bookshop, during least, who pronounced on a Facebook post: “We conclude all your donations, though reduction Fifty Shades and some-more Sixties and Seventies vinyl would be good.”
A identical summary was conveyed to a open when a emporium was flooded with Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code.
Mr Broadhurst pronounced a Facebook post was carrying a large impact.
“I consider it has widespread since people like a humour in a interest — and also there are a lot of people spooky by Fifty Shades of Grey and by vinyl!”
The business has grown from a behind bedroom craving to a room operation contracting 32 staff.
Managing executive Ashley Stamford-Plows pronounced supply of a EL James books was outstripping demand, though that there had been a conspicuous swell in direct when a Fifty Shades of Grey film came out final year.
The premises now has 750,000 books of all descriptions in stock.
“The Fifty Shades array has taken it to a whole new level,” combined Mr Stamford-Plows. “We have sole thousands ourselves.”
The books are scanned as they arrive, with a set of algorithms determining what should be kept and what their online value is. Ones that won’t sell — some 20 tonnes per week — are sent for recycling where they are pulped into kitchen and toilet roll.
Mr Stamford-Plows pronounced singular gems did spasmodic spin up.
“We have an antiquarian dialect here, and we sell some high-value books each week,” he said.
One instance was a initial book of The Hound of a Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, that sole for £600.
Mr Stamford-Plows pronounced he was not privately informed with a work of EL James.
“I haven’t review Fifty Shades of Grey — my mother has,” he said.
