mazi abe’s side: the allure of the Closing Down Sale


Yesterday, I attended the opening ceremony of my friend’s designer clothes shop in Wembley, North London.

Short but swank cocktail do, with a few celebs popping in and the whole atmosphere showed promising patronage and sales.

After the party, Femi the owner and I, were sharing a bottle of wine in the back office, gisting, when he suddenly jumped up, exclaiming, “Aaaaaaah, abe I almost forgot the most important thing sha, abeg come and help me”.

So he brought out this long stick-on tape and started to unroll it in front of the shop window.

“Oya, hold that side, let me pull it across this side” he called out, as he pasted it against the gleaming front display glass. We both stood back to admire the bold legend now screaming out across the shop window: CLOSING DOWN SALE.
