Double Dutch win for some

AMSTERDAM - The Netherlands' 3-0 win over Italy at the European Championship was bad news for a store that offered customers a discount for each goal the Dutch scored.

AMSTERDAM - The Netherlands' 3-0 win over Italy at the European Championship was bad news for a store that offered customers a discount for each goal the Dutch scored.

A spokesman for Kruidvat said her company offered ß100 (about R1230) off the price of a ß400 (about R5000) computer screen for each Dutch goal.

Jose Mes said the company's web site crashed before half time during Monday's game as it was swamped by "hundreds of thousands" of bargain hunters hoping to take advantage of the deal.

Several hundred screens were sold at ß100 each before supplies were exhausted and the company stopped the deal. - Sapa-AP
