    labels were on the shelves. One of the assistants told me the Bonne Maman was just one of the spreads which will be going - no idea what others will be. None of their jams were marked down. I think I've seen some of the marmalade varieties, in other years, reduced but not today. I wouldn't be surprised if they're making space for mincemeat & Christmassy spreads.

    I went in last night and all the coffee had gone, the labels from the shelf, and there's no space for it as other coffees have filled that in.

    The jars of spread now all have yellow stickers on, as well as marked SEL. I'll be making lots of banoffie tartlets soon so it's a great find for me.

    Can people stop loaning money/being a guarator to family/friends, it rarely ends well and you lose out as your money is gone or you get shafted with being a guarantor.

I got some things and went to get my Mum who was in the next aisle by the time we came back a woman had put most of it in her trolley. HTH

    The whisks in the clearance were 75p and the Glade plug-ins were £3.45 so perhaps those are up to manager's discretion.

    Not in the clearance, but the Price's' candles are all Buy One Get One Free - includes reed diffusers - they also have a seasonal Mulled Wine fragrance
