Day 1 - March 1st 2013

Q: What was the first item sold online by Bureau Direct?

Thousands and thousands of orders later it is still a nice feeling when an order pops up, but there was something special about the first one. Especially since we were running a shop which was becoming harder and harder to get customers into (Central London and all its associated problems), and here was this marvellous new way of making a sale. Even when we were asleep.

A: A Beth Bag
