A British Disc Jockey, Lee Marshall, is obviously cashing out on the coronavirus pandemic after selling toilet rolls worth about £3,000 (N1.3million) in 2 hours at the back of his van.
The DJ, from Kent, also known as Disco Boy, decided to engage in bulk-buying toilet paper and sold it to people desperately in need of the toiletry during the coronavirus pandemic.
Speaking to Metro UK, he said:
‘A supplier messaged us and said they’ve got loads of toilet roll and can’t sell them because hotels aren’t buying at the moment. They’re just sitting in a warehouse.
‘I looked in the supermarket and they were roughly the same price as an Andrex toilet paper anyway – so we’ve sort of made £3-per-pack on them. ‘We kept some back for delivering at night – as we’ve had a lot of people messaging that they can’t reach us. My mate Brett was out until 11.30pm the day before.
‘The last drop-off I did last night, the old lady was scared and left her money by the door. We’ve done so many home deliveries and haven’t charged extra for them.’
‘I’m a DJ and I’ve had so many gigs cancelled. I’ve got bills to pay and trying to keep my head above water. I’ve always been a bit of a businessman and thought you can’t always make memories, but you can always make money.’
