yes, but some are slightly better, bathroom had 40% after this they will have 50% + 15% (so about 42.5% of orginal price)


also every other retailer does this at this time of year - dfs, magnet, scs, etc.....

as above poster said everyone has hiked prices. but you can guarantee B&Q are going to be still around to help you when you need replacements or want to add to your kitchen. steep, but expect more discounts in january.

I work for the company and yes the prices did double on kitchen units (not the full showrooms range) 4 weeks ago. The staff had words with management as its the first time this has ever happened at B&Q. MFI used to do it and got into big trouble because of it. I think its cost them more money than what they would have got if they left the prices as they are. Tradesmen and customers have gone to other places for better prices.

B&Q did double their prices of all their units and doors. They also have manufactured a fictitious brand of Cooke and Lewis and moved some of the IT range into it.

It's all a marketing con and doubling the prices is shameful. See below for the same page from their autumn and summer catalogues to see the price doubling.
