  • Went to Wilkinsons today for some bargains, but left a tad disappointed. Was lookign for a shelf - found plenty of shelf brackets but not the bloomin' wood to go on the brackets!!! Did get some bunny hay for £2 which was good. DD got some facewipes so she was chuffed.

    Yes, unfortunately the wooden shelving was discontinued a while ago in most stores :o Plenty of bargains still left to be had though, at my store we still have alot of paint left at 75% off, prices as low as £3 for 2.5L!

    To answer the earlier question about Nappies, our Toiletries offers are due to change on Tuesday, so you could still buy them today or tomorrow for the 2 for £10 price :beer:
    If anyone else has questions i'll be happy to help :j

    I got some black curtains yesterday with white swirls 75% off in the st helens store- 46" by 72". They are really nice, I'm not describing them well. Should have been £20, stickered 75% off hence £5. They had a range of sizes. Ideal for my brother in laws 1st house.

    Yes, as a general guideline for reductions we sticker up any reduced lines, it could be that all the bigger tins have already sold out as sometimes people do empty the shelf of these offers!
    My store is a medium sized one and not as busy as some of the larger one, so we still have quite a few colours left even of the big size tins of paint, if you have another Wilko store nearby it may be work checking there too :j

    In Wilko's yesterday I got one of my favourite perfumes - Calvin Klein Eternity - at a bargain price of £14.97 for 30 ml edp spray (it's £28 in Boots). Not sure how long it is on offer but looks like it's part of their Mother's Day promotion/offers. :j:j:j
    Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift - the present. ;)

    yellow highlighted means it is a discontinued line. usually these will eventually get reduced by 25% then 50% and then finally 75% off the original price.


    offers going on this week include

    velvet 4 pkt £1.59
    Tresemme shampoo and conditioners £1.97
    Sure deo £1.17 including the new minerals
    Wisdom mouthwash, aquafresh mouthwash 97p
    Domestos bleach 67p
    morning fresh 50% extra free 78p
    Comfort natural fabric conditioner 98p

    will check laters and update this list as only had a quick lookie last nite.
