Zombies Counter Recession

January 16, 2013

Here’s a link to a recent BBC business news article about how an organization of apocalyptic cannibal zombie emulators have become involved in attempts to regenerate a local shopping mall in Reading.

BBC Zombie Mall

In the article a representative from the Local Data Company – which collects nation wide data on the use of retail and leisure premises – tells the BBC “Shops are having to change their use – distinction is the key word – consumers really want something different from their High Streets.” So it looks like your local run-down shopping mall may soon be filled with gyms, crèches, art galleries and zombie emulators, “putting the heart back into the High Street”.

(Zed Events, the company that organizes the zombie apocalypse emulation activities, is currently looking for would-be zombies who will be eradicated by the other fee-paying participants. They are charging a fee of £119.00 for the pleasure.)
