    BUYER BEWARE: Nothing much is 70% off either in-store or online. NOTHING has yellow stickers in my local store and my local store has higher prices than the same items online.

    You are better off buying online, as I have found several items which are £1-£2 higher each in store. Examples, kids chinos, baby sleeping bags and ladies jeggings. Those are only items I was interested in, so there will certainly be lots more.

    70% off signs are just a ruse to get people into store and buying, when in reality the prices haven't dropped on 95% of the items.

    I got much better prices buying online, but of course there is less stock and it moves faster. They probably want to get rid of the online stock and put it into stores.

    Went in to a store today to collect 4 orders i did when the 70% sale started. Only 3 orders had arrived. I stay in the north of scotland but i still gave them a week for deliver to store. Filling my basket for the 90% sale.

    They don't do 90% online. Only in-store, presumably so they don't get returns as it wouldn't be worth their hassle. If you sell online you have to abide by the distance selling regulations, but in-store they can put yellow stickers on that state no returns. HTH
