It is always interesting to watch the effects of an international crisis close up. In my case, I had the opportunity to see the massive (well, 150 persons according to media) queue waiting outside of the Merlin branch on Vestergade here in Odense. Merlin – a consumer electronics chain owned by … you’ve guessed it … an Icelandic investment group – stopped its payments due to insolvency on Monday but was taken over by a Danish chain. So today saw a fire sale in the Merlin shops.
Meanwhile, Iceland is now being helped by the other Nordic countries in a working group led by Sweden.
PS: I have a picture of the queue but my internet connections are a bit erratic.
