Rapunzel, Rapunzel, knock down your hair: Tower comes to market

We're not entirely sure what the attraction of brand tied to high-street music sales - and brand complete with the stench of failure at that - would be to purchasers, but the people charged with flogging off the last of Tower's assets are pretty sure people will be bidding when they auction 'em off next month.

Amongst the attractions are the website - we guess Virgin or HMV might be interested in whacking a forward onto that, and the Tower brand. The value of that might depend on how you feel about the last promo work done on it being by blokes wearing sandwich boards fighting through pre-Christmas crowds announcing the closing down sale, for all the world like the end of the Brand's world was nigh.
