Fidget Spinners Can’t Get Cheaper

The company that imports the most used cars into New Zealand is now trying its hand at another import … fidget spinners. The only difference is the new craze device will be given away free.

The fidget spinner obsession has been sweeping Auckland for the past few weeks, primarily with the younger age group. The spinners appear to be mildly addictive with users seemingly unable to be satisfied with just one device.

2 Cheap Cars chief executive Eugene Williams says the company has decided to enter into the fun craze by importing its own branded spinners.

“It is not a serious new business venture for us, although we do know about importing, so we have assembled a stash of 2 Cheap Cars spinners for distribution,” says Mr Williams.

The supply is limited but they will be available this coming Saturday from all of the 2 Cheap Cars seven sales locations in Auckland. 2 Cheap Cars Auckland branches are in Penrose, Botany, Wairau, New Lynn, Greenlane, Manukau and East Tamaki. Giveaway times and locations are available from the 2 Cheap Cars Facebook page.
