Argh I cant handle this. A staff member in store today told me it was Wednesday! Now I have no idea whether to make an early store run this Wed or next. I was planning for this Wed so I will be gutted if it's next. But also could be a big learning curve around the power of rumour and the Internet! Where are all the insiders right now!! Where are you

well i'm still going to go on wednesday just in case! they might be trying to put us off the scent so they can have all the bargains

Asked in my boots today and they don't even know when it is and stated they only know on the day. But did reiterate it will be a Wednesday that all.

went today..wasted my time before work only to be told it wasnt today. wasnt going to go as i had already been told the dates it begins...but went just in case.. i know when it will be now...

The third wednesday in jan??? Thats unusual

not a deal. no prices of items listed. shouldn't be in deals.

IWOOTN

not a deal. no prices of items listed. shouldn't be in deals.



Gimme a 't'.... gimme an 'i'...... gimme a.....

Once again a rumour with no actual details of any deals is posted as a deal.

Well the last rumour was confirmed by a member of Boots staff, think they need a pair of glasses!

I popped into Alfreton branch and the lady at the till said there wasnt even going to be a 75% sale. So that told me

That is because it is 70%

Heard there is no 70% sale this year due to BREXIT, maximum they can do is 50%, which is on now so get on with it

what I have noticed in the stores I've been on is that they have loads of stock left, what I think this will mean is they will put the 70% sale off for a little bit to sell more of the stock. I was in boots today and they 100% have the 70% on the back of the current 50% ones.

The 70% header is pre printed on the back of the 50% header every year. It isn't a sign that the sale is soon, they are probably just more visible as they have put some sun cream etc out on the other shelves

Was in store today to buy lunch, there was two staff members talking about the 70% sale as both wanted to get some bargains, I overheard them discussing that it was due to start today, but was postpone, due to the stock levels.

Love this mad rush. Free publicity to Boots. I'm sure they'll post profitable week leading upto their so called BOOTS SALES.

I was in Boots returning an item on 10th Jan. I asked what time the store opened on 11th ,the staff member said 10am and as I walked away she said the 70% doesn't start tomorrow and went on to say she didn't know how people knew. I went down to TC on off chance on 11th . there was afew people about and when doors opened it was clear there was no sale But a customer who was also waiting asked a member of staff when it was starting and they said Friday 13th! Don't know how true this is as they are not meant to know until the day. Although the staff member who told me it wasn't on 11th was right and I hadn't asked her when the sale started only what time they opened. I either caught her off guard or she was being kind and didn't want me to have a wasted journey. This is a bit long winded but it might help who knows!

Brexit means Breakfast......

Went into Boots today , they still had loads of xmas stock left. I overheard two members of staff discussing the 70% off sale , they said it was next week but didn't say which day.

Yes I have the same experience when I was even given the same terms with MSE site by email that concurs 11th was unconfirmed, may want to flag this up as things occur.
I have learnt a valuable lessson that not everything is 100% certain here.
We often have to make our own enquiries, before passing on to others because the credibility and integrity of it.

Ty for sharing

I was in my local store today, they seemed to be moving all of the sale stock to one area, also bringing new stock out in grey crates. I've not been to the sale before so not sure if it's relevant but looks like they were going to reduce it some time soon, I'm guessing tomorrow

This is really unfair how cold this is. Newbie posts random post last week and it got loads of heat and attention and then the op ( who by the way IS in the know) gets voted cold. It was never going to be 11th as that was far too early. Storck please pm me when you 100 % know as I'm listening to you

i think the 70% sale will be on the wednesday 18th also, i have been previous years and usually around this date (the earliest i been was a wed 14th), and it always seem to fall on a wednesday when i've been.. i seen a previous thread that said it was the 11th and thought it was far too early and i am glad i didnt get up early to head to a non existing 70% sale ! to be honest the stock in my local isnt that great so i wont particularly mind if i miss the 70% sale this year!

If it's next week,I hope it's on the Wednesday and not another day otherwise I won't be able to go. There was a lot of stock left in one of city centre stores, it was rather surprising there was so much actually.

I completely agree, however op has even said himself that from his knowledge (which I do trust) the decision will be made at a meeting on Monday... Therefore even though this is a very very likely date - at this point in time it is still speculation.
Hopefully on Monday the op and other boots staff will know for sure if it's the 18th or not x​

I don't take the negative ratings personally just find it amusing when compared to the thread last week.

It will be what it will be.

​To be honest I'm surprised the mods allowed it as the op edited the date in the title 3 times... Plus his original post announced it as a 75%off sale which we all know it isn't. Lost all credibility for me that post so I voted it cold.

Didn't know you could edit the first post and title. I might do that and change it to 25th as 18th is launch of new No7 product
