Hi everyone, have just created an account so that i could post this and I do hope there's no glaring mistakes, if so my apologies.

Anyways, have found out that the Past Times store in Newcastle (Eldon Square) is having a 50% off RRP of EVERYTHING from 9am till 1pm. I do like having a browse in this shop (especially the books) and thought I'd share especially as its a great place to get Xmas presents for those difficult family members!

Hope you grab a bargain while its on and all the best.

Thank you for taking the time to post this. However, a word of caution. They had a 50% off everything offer in Past Times in Grismby, and they had a stickered book at £5 (made up price) with a price printed on the back cover of £10. The £5 was the normal price. So you might expect £5 minus 50% = £2.50 but nope, it already had the 50% off according to the assistant.

So things might not be as cheap as you might expect.

was in there yesterday...bought a few gifts.
shame this wasnt on yesterday.
will miss out tomorrow as i dont finish work till after 2

thanx for the heads up neway op!!

Inoticed that too...when ours had their 50% off not so long ago. A book with a large £5 sticker on it...also had a small priced sticker. Which was originally approx £14 knocked down to £7.

So double check before hand.

MASSIVE 50% off poster in the Basingstoke shop windon - only there were two tiny words above the headline "up to".

same deal in sheffield - 'up to 50%'. Some nice items though.

Nottingham store also have 50% off everything, but it will be from the original ticket price, between 9am and 1pm.

Absolutely everything will be 50% off - not up to, but it will be from the original price. IE:

If a book usually cost £12 but was reduced to £10 anyway, in the 50% off it will be £6 as it will be 50% off the original price, not the previously reduced price. If that makes sense.

Can confirm that its various Past Times stores, but not all of them - my Husband is a store manager.

Hope this helps someone - I always get some lovely presents in there - especially for Grandparents. Just got one of their advent candles, which you burn for half an hour a day until Christmas day. The kids love it!

Hi everyone, regarding the 'up to 50%', they do have those deals in the shop but between 9 and 1 its 50% off everything, well 50% off the RRP anyways. Great time to get a bargain! I'll be popping in for one of the leather wallets on my lunch

Yep ANOther 'upto 50% off everything' in Wigan.

On at the Edinburgh Princess St branch as well .

Same in Welwyn Garden City..

In Gretna Green out let store last Friday they had this deal but 50%off top price ie - was £10 in out let store usualy £7.50 but £5 as 50% was off the top/oridginal price - this was an outlet store

Bluewater had a sale of 'up to' 50% off last week, got a few bits then, I wonder if they are closing down?

Up to 50% in my local store meant 20% off for most things and 3 items at 50% off - 2 of which were books.
So I avoided on principle as it is grossly misleading to have such tiny number offered in relation to the 2 massive posters in the window.

Hi Laura and thanks for your input! Todays deal is for 4 hours only and is NOT an "up to 50%" its IS 50% off the RRP of ALL items.

Lots of comments here about "up to 50%" sales but that is not what this is, its 50% off the RRP of everything in the store for 4 hours only. As freebielover above mentions, if a item is full price at £10, it will £5 during this sale, if a sale item was £10 and is now £8 then it will be £5 during this sale.

I'm sure their "up to 50%" items will be there after this sale, but grab a further bargain while you can

Hi icementhol
Yeah I get the difference. What I should have said was why don't they either run the 50% off everything all the time, or make the UP TO the same size in the massive poster. Then I won't feel they are trying to con people to walk through the door.
