Hard Times for Surf Retailer

A major surf retailer based in Cape Town has been forced into liquidation. Zag Spy received the heavy news that all three of the stores were closed and stock reclaimed this week. Spare a thought not only for the owner, but the employees and brands affected.

    as realist says! If this is what you are going to pass for journalism you should all be happy to write for The Sun! No where near an accurate reflection of the situation!

    Info verified directly through the owners of two major surf brands, who went in and reclaimed their stock personally. The latest development, apparently, is that a third party has taken over the lease of the stores.

    as an avid reader of all Zag writing – i see the ZagSpy as the same as the word on the street…so that  hardly makes this a headline or hard core journalism…
    By the way is it Sport and Surf -they seem to have closed for ra refit all of a sudden?
    Would love the detail Curtis – you seem to know the scoop !?
