Eason stores told to separate 'Grey' and Graham Dwyer books after backlash

Photos appeared over the weekend of displays which had the books side-by-side.

A NUMBER OF Eason stores have been instructed not to place copies of the new Fifty Shades novel and Paul Williams’ book on Graham Dwyer beside each other.

It comes after images from two stores appeared online showing merchandising displays on which Grey and Almost A Perfect Murder had been placed – seemingly deliberately – side-by-side.

It caused uproar online, with some users branding it “cynical” and “ignorant”.

In a statement to TheJournal.ie, the book store chain said stores had not been instructed to merchandise the two books alongside one another.

“These books should not have been displayed together. These displays were corrected once the stores in question were identified.”
