5m power lead with figure of 8 connector - £1 @ maplin in-store

Just went to my local Maplin to find their 5m power leads reduced to £1! Cheapest I've found for 5 metres long, grabbed 5 and they still had loads left at Queensway branch. Their website is closed so it's in store only.

Good price. If they had prices like this to begin with, they probably wouldn't have gone bust

Lol if they had prices like this in the first place they'd been busy sooner.

Though they were extreme with their prices, I get what you mean anyway.
At Maplin Plymouth they do figure of 8 and cloverleaf 2m cables for 'buy one' get 5 free' *pay for most expensive one
It's C7 socket.
They probably charged £25 for this cable before they went bust - hence the reason for going bust.
My local Maplins look's like when the main character in Zombie horror flick first wakes up from a coma and find's everything deserted.
It's sad to see Maplin driven to ruin by venture capitalists, and poor, slow response to market trends.
The fact that my local still has things at 80% reduction that aren't selling says a lot.
Example, why on earth do they still have 30 metre VGA cables for sale in 2018? Not just a few either, whole racks of toxic stock...
Gutted they're going, but the writing's been on the wall for a while now.
As usual staff get stuffed over while the bosses run with the cash
To be fair that's about the going rate, well maybe for a 1M one, so I guess heat added.

I used to visit Maplin's more than once a week, then when the catalogue started shrinking and costing more than £5 I went about once a month. Then I discovered ebay and stepped foot in store less than half a dozen times after that...
I was last in before the announcement (a couple of months ago) to buy a capacitor for my tumble dryer as it was in stock versus getting it posted. I guess I'll miss the conviencen - just not the prices!
All power plugs are £1 at any maplin on stores final day got a few when streatham store closed a month ago they also had this price at new malden store on final day a few days ago, be careful some stores are still seling these at £2-£5 different prices at different stores.
Don't mind having a few spares but don't know what stores in London are still open now as the ones in North London are all closed
