It's been unbearable to work a desk job during the July heat without some sort of air cooler, but those who weren't quick enough to buy a cheap fan in time have had to cope with overheated offices. 

Metroxpress reports that all department stores in Denmark have sold out of fans after eager and sweaty customers pulled them all off the shelves.

Fan demand
Harald Nyborg have handed more than 5,000 table and floor ventilators over the counter and won't get any more shipped this year.

Martin Møller Aamand, spokesperson of Dansk Supermarked, told Metroxpress that their stores Føtex and Bilka are sold out too, but that they have already placed orders for more fans.

"They are out of stock. Fans for the home or the office have been in great demand due to two to three weeks of heatwave,"

One thousand on the way
Bauhaus and Elgiganten have also run dry, but Elgiganten announced that a thousand extra fans may already be in the stores by Friday.
