1TB Verbatim External Hard Drive £35.60 at closing down Staples

140
Found 16th Jan 2013
About 23 Staples Nationwide are closing down and liquidating their stock. Whilst browsing the store in Mansfield I came across a 1TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive in Hot Pink for £35.60.
The assistant on the till tells me that these have been further reduced to this price just today (60% off).
These are over £100 on Amazon so I'm assuming it's a good deal.

Closing stores are:

•Barnstaple
•Bedford (Kempston Interchange Retail Park)
•Blackburn
•Cardiff Bay
•Dudley, Merry Hill
•Dundee
•Dunstable
•Grimsby
•Mansfield
•Rochdale
•Salisbury
•Southport
•Swansea
•Wrexham
•Bristol
•Cambridge
•Colchester
•Halifax

There was also some 500GB ones at approx £24. there was around 10 1TB ones left on the shelf.

Go Easy on me OPs this is my first Deal.

its a fair deal, but for them claiming its 60% off (of the already discounted price) just shows how much they must mark them up to begin with,

portable 3.0 1tb normally retail for about £35 - £50 depending on the brand

none at this price at merry hill, not long come back from there.

The person quoted £35 for a 1tb portable USB 3.0, show me this and I'd be impressed, otherwise he's talking out of where the sun doesn't shine.

It's not on your list, OP, but it's another that's closing...

Probably only the stores that are closing all noted above.

Portable 3.0 1tb are usually £50 and upwards - I got the Toshiba deal from Currys yesterday.

£35 is dreaming... maybe in a year's time or some mega-one-off bargain.

Any idea which of the bristol stores is closing? Will head to one of them later and let people know if I see this there...

Only wish I wasn't 35 miles away from the nearest store. I'd buy a couple of these at that price.
