    Wilkinsons Reductions thread 5th Feb 13 at 12:43 PM
    Hi all, haven't seen this anywhere else and don't think it belongs in the Christmas one so here goes!

    Just been to my local store and they have 2 trollies full of discounted items, plenty of each including:

    Dog misfit biscuits 69p various different ones
    Lucozade 1L both original and Orange 50p!!!
    Ribena small bottles 39p
    Ambipur 3volution £3.99 - including the plug in and a freshener
    Single ambi pur plug ins £2.00
    Small red pan - £2.99
    Curtain tie backs £1.50 - single tie back with beads
    Small pink photo frames £1.00
    Regina Kitchen Roll - didnt see the price as someone was just taking the last 3!

    needless to say i stocked up on the bits we go through in my house

    Don't know if its nationwide or local but worth trying

    HTH someone

    My local said they're not reducing the seeds off anymore to 10p...1p this year, as they'll be putting it all out again in a few months time.

    Seeds are 50p a pack on Wilko own brand only, everything else is still £1. There's no point them reducing them much, since they have such long dates that some of them are good until 2019!

    I bought Wilko's own brand decking oil yesterday. £5 instead of £9. And it's very good. I ran out last year and used Cuprinol to finish - twice the price and not as good.

    Re the 1p bargains, I've also experienced it in the past when they have refused to sell it for that price. It varies from store to store although I find this time of year when they have Xmas temporary staff they just tend to sell it for whatever it scans for.
    hope others find some bargains too.

    I understood that the law states that a shop HAS to sell the item to you at the advertised price. I've had items for free when I've stated that to them and there's been a problem re: scanning.

    Loads of hair accessories reduced in a big bin today, Whiskas cat food sachets and Felix chicken cat food sachets. Saw the John Freda colour mousses too. Some kind of sponge washing up type cloths in a 3 pack. Tonnes of other stuff too, but store was near closing and items weren't for me. Sorry didn't have time to check prices.

    I don't think that's the case. I think that if something has a price tag on it, the store isn't under any obligation to sell it, however frustrating it can be for the customer.

    Also, If something has been mis-priced I think you have to prove that store did that deliberately to get people interested.

    I don't know why some of these shops use that method of pricing down to 1p - there must be another way of highlighting that this stock has to be taken off the shelves.

    No; not in a self-service store. The goods on display are an 'invitation to treat', rather than an 'offer for sale'. As the shopper, you are the one offering to buy - and it is up to the shop to decide whether or not to accept your offer.

    Thanks Tipsters.
    In my store were:
    Fence varnish dark oak 50p - that will do for the side we can't see !
    other colours £2. So I bought a total of 2 of each for £5.
    All seeds 10p
    rigger gloves 10p
    large green plastic wine glasses 10p
    indoor white ceramic pot 50p
    plastic drinking jars with handles 50p
    various large rolls of wire/sets of green plastic rods etc £2
    Kneelers-thick 2 inch pads with a pretty cover and handle, too good for the garden so I plan to use indoors or could be used for seat pads etc £1
    Other plastic pots, tying wire, etc 10p
    Alcohol free since 4/1/15.

    I saw a box marked all seeds 10p but when I took some to the counter they were only half price. The assistant said it was because they were not own branded seed although they were all in the same box. I hate it when they advertise like this as you feel a fool when you go to counter to pay and other customers can hear what is being said.
