    I checked the Matalan in Inverness, when i had Sunday off. They had some Christmas stock, which they were/are selling dirt cheap. Had a box of Christmas tree decorations for 40p or 50p (originally around the 4/5 price mark). But it was stock which they had from Christmas last year. And had some Christmas trees on sale as well. But I resisted not to buy any of it though.

    Forgot to mention, they also had Disney Christmas cards reduced from 2 to 50p (ideal for little girls to send to classmates), and Christmas lights for 1.

    The girl said she still had more to bring down, so will check again tomorrow

    Nothing at Merry Hell. Selling off some of the summer stock but nothing too interesting
  • parapusher
    I went to Filton's store yesterday evening. Not much left, but I managed to get a nice travel wallet marked down from 18 to 4.50 that I thought would be a good present for my SIL, even better it went through the till at 2 !! Not much christmas stuff except black christmas trees that were marked as 4. They had lots of halloween paper plates/cups etc in the 75% off sale, if anyone in Bristol is wanting those, sorry can't remember the price.

    Big pack of baubles were 50p.
