Current Google Insights trends: Quelle.de and 'This Is It'
Wednesday 04 November 2009
Searches for the German mail-order company, Quelle.de, have once again skyrocketed as consumers race to purchase heavily discounted goods during the business's last ever sale.
Clothes, shoes and accessories were selling for up to 30 percent off when the online sale started on November 1. Consumers flocked to purchase bargains on the German site, located at quelle.de, causing it to crash with the high influx of traffic.
Quelle will continue to offer their inventory at reduced prices until stocks are depleted.
The now-bankrupt company will use money gained from sales both online and in its German-based stores to pay the remaining 4,300 staff their wages.
