London, England - Kebab shop proprietor and all round entrepeneur, Ali Bullo today announced the closure of his Everest summit Kebab cum souvenir cum newsagents shop on the summit of Mount Everest, the highest point on the planet, the roof of the world.
"Sales no good," Ali Bullo announced. "We love to make good business but not enough customers. When customers do come they only want to take pictures, and they knackered. They no want kebabs, and no really wanna see papers. Shop at Base Camp doing good business, but summit one, bad investment."
Everest summit kebab shop worker Ismet Oddjob, who has been laid off, told us:
"It's sad, but cutting kebab and sorting papers up there is too hard. Altitude sickness and breath shortage no good. Getting charcoal grill burning in rarified atmosphere is really big nightmare. Then no customers. Plus getting picture on portable TV is bloody nightmare up there. Not to mention no sexy English girls with corned beef legs hanging around van all the time. No good. Far as I concerned, good bladdy riddance. Shit job innit."
More as we get it.
