Once in a Blue Moon: ‘Knight Rider’ Car Hire and the UK’s Oldest Shop
LONDON, August 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –
http://BusinessesForSale.com believes a rare lunar event happening tonight is the
perfect time to consider some once-in-a-blue-moon business opportunities.
Friday 31 August marks the rise of a ‘blue moon’, a phenomenon occurring roughly once
every two-and-a-half years where a full moon arises twice in a calendar month.
Folklore has for thousands of years linked full moons to crime, fertility and, of
course, werewolves, but BusinessesForSale.com expects a surge in traffic to the section
dedicated to eccentric or bizarre business opportunities.
Currently on the world’s leading directory of businesses for sale is a business which
hires out a replica of the car featured in the hit 1980s series Knight Rider. Counting
David Hasselhoff and The X Factor’s Louis Walsh among its clients, the car – called Kitt -
is yours for just GBP29,500.
Perhaps the lunar landmark will awaken ghosts at the 500-year old shop for sale in
Kent. An interview with the current owner of the UK’s oldest shop is available on
Andrew Markou, co-founder and technical director of Dynamis, the online media group
behind BusinessesForSale.com, says: “The timing of the blue moon is appropriate. The
arrival of autumn is often one of those once-in-a-blue moon moments for reflection and
taking life-changing decisions.
“With the ranks of the self-employed swelling this year, there’s a growing appetite to
avoid a challenging job market or escape corporate life. Whether it’s an unusual business
like the online astrology chat-room currently on sale, or a conventional business like a
pub or post office, countless people will take this opportunity to buy a business and
transform their life.”
