IN a moving ceremony the last person who shops at Currys these days was committed to the ground in a mediocre fridge-freezer.
Pensioner Mary Fisher, 95, bought many items at Currys due to not really understanding electrical or electronic goods and being too scared of computers to shop online.
A Currys spokesman said: “This is a very sad time for us. Mary was the sort of elderly customer we depend on because they are a bit clueless about good deals.
“She will be sadly missed by the staff at her local Currys in Norwich, where they will have nothing to do but stare aimlessly at the vast array of garish, low-performance laptops.
“Mary was the last of her generation, by which I mean people who don’t compare prices online and buy Nintendo games that will be completely useless on their grandchildren’s Playstations.”
At the well-attended funeral Fisher was buried in an overpriced £249 Zagtech L770 fridge freezer that is surprisingly noisy and which a younger, more clued-up consumer would never buy.
Mourner Eleanor Shaw said: “It was a beautiful service. It’s just a shame the fridge-coffin came with the wrong door and they had to go back to the depot for a new one.”
