most of their shops in Dublin and around Ireland have had to pull their shutters down and close because the public aren't standing for it, they've been taking stock to the value of their vouchers and handing the vouchers to staff and walking out the door.

Pre-orders are gone, and if any money was spent as a deposit that is also lost.

I wasn't sure of the situation with pre-orders, so iPhones up and cancelled my Skyfall preorder.

Hope another retailer manages to pick it up as that case was pretty damn nice.
