Have been trying to justify buying this vacuum for some time now as the best price I could find online was £259.
Stopped into my local Currys (Chingford on the A406) this afternoon just to have a look at it in person (with intention of buying it elsewhere online if I could convince myself to pay that much for a vacuum) and found that the printed sign indicated the price of £127.97 and included the line 'save over £130'. Indeed. I got the last one there. The guys in the shop said that Currys is discontinuing Miele products. They aren't available online anymore.
As a rather odd bonus, spoke to a very nice gentleman who took a keen interest in my purchase of a vacuum and discussed with me how I came to decide on the model, etc. Turns out, CEO of the group was visiting the store that day! Very nice that he took the time to speak to a customer - really nice fella.
This is my first post (my husband is an avid reader of the site) - so please be kind. I know it may not be widely available as it's down to local stock availability - but too good a deal not to post in case it does help someone.
