As the exodus of things leave the Olympic venues, the little question of the Athletes Village comes into focus. Those in charge of the clean-up have to clear the contents of the apartments in order to prepare them for public use.
Ramler Furniture received the contract for providing furniture for the Village, and under it’s terms they have been able to buy it back.
Both new and returning students are angling for a bargain on furniture for their new residences, and Remains of the Games provides an opportunity to invest in little used items fresh from London 2012. The chance to buy perhaps the exact same swivel chair as Rebecca Addlington, or the same bed as Mo Farah (Mo Farah not included) is sure to attract much custom, however Ramler are unable to confirm exactly who owned each item.
With prices ranging from 50p coat hangers to £2,500 for guest pass and ticketing centre reception furniture, and a collection point in Nottingham; it provides some compensation for those who were unable to attend the games, and add a piece of the games on your room.
