It's easy to predict when this will start. Ask me when I finish buying presents, and then add two weeks. Sigh.

Amazing deal, hope unlike last year they actually have stock many stores sold out of many lines within hours!

Hmm I'd be wary that they are going to pull this forward. Staff in our local were advised weds but warned this could be moved to Monday and the stock for the start is already stored out the back ready to go out... Word was they maybe sneaky to avoid the manic rush on the advertised morning. Pop up in the late evenings and see what they are up to!!

So true gonna be there at 8am for the doors opening.Made the mistake last year of heading in at lunchtime-all the shelfs were stripped bare of all the good stuff and people were just about rolling around on the floor fighting each other for what little was left.
I asked a member of staff if they would be putting more stock out and she said "we're leaving that to the nightshift-would you get involved in that?" and pointed at the scrum in the toy aisle and I could see where she was coming from.
I've moved and can now just about see the Sainsburys from my house so alarm set for half 7 and let the games begin!

Yes, always seems to be half-term. I remember having to sneak out while hubby was here so that could leave kids at home.

You obviously havent been to a Sainsburys toy sale before.............. :) ill be there 10pm tuesday with my tent
#29
awesome deal. great for Christmas shopping!!

like someone said a lot of stores will have the stock already, i have worked on the GM section one night and there wasn't much that came in on the delivery toywise, so if they put it all out wednesday night/thursday morning then I doubt it will be restocked, then again I could be wrong.

Ditto... And I work on General Merchandise my friend in the thick of it! We have 30+ pallets of stock arriving to fill up the warehouse in the next few days so all good fun! Done these toy sales for the last 4 years and they don't get any easier!

Can you confirm if its Thursday it starts x
#32
... Not had an official confirmation down yet ;)
#33
Thanks for the heads up. I'll be heading over to Sainsburys next week to see what they've got! :D

We've always aimed at our store to have absolutely everything out and you are very true in that once the first hit arrives (i.e 30 odd boards like my above post) you get a second allocation if you are lucky with about 10 boards and very little after that. Main point is be waiting at the door of the shop on the 27th or you will probably miss out :)


Yeah I am sure that's right, I work on fresh so don't really know the ins and outs of the GM department, only been on there for like half a night before. My store is one of the biggest so hopefully we will get a second load of toys.

Leamington spa :)


Our store opens at 6 and isn't really that busy, I am sure that will change once this offer goes live.
