Found 13th May 2017
Features 3 heat settings. 7 fin heat distribution. Variable thermostat. Cable tidy. On castors for manoeuvrability. Integrated handle. 1500W power.

Last one I bought like this was £15 in Tesco, the following week they went to £25. So for £5 you decide.

National?
Sorry, just checked the link, as I should have done in the first place, and it is. Heat from me for the radiator...
Amazing deal. £5 is obviously way below the cost of manufacture, distribution, profit margins on the way etc. So how does this happen? Does a manufacturer or distributor suddenly realize they have much too much stock, and so virtually gives them away to a discount retailer like Poundland? Anyone know the inside story?
Good price
Day who?
is this store specific or national and can you order online
accvio

It was a mild winter. Obviously importers and retailers have to gamble on the weather, sometimes they win, sometimes they lose. Hence why you sometimes get stacks of cheap heaters, snow shovels and screenwash in spring, or stacks of fans, sun hats and barbecues in autumn.

If you could reliably predict the weather further into the future than the time it takes for an order of goods to be made and arrive from China you could become immensely wealthy. Interestingly there is now a direct rail route from China to the UK that opened this year. Though moving goods by rail is more expensive than by sea, it is unlike air transport, an economic method to move low cost consumer items. So it is likely that wholesalers and retailers will in future hold less stock of weather sensitive goods in Europe and rely on more goods being made to order, and so perhaps we will get less bargains like this out of season.

Potluck I think. Been to two stores and phoned a couple. Either it's store specific or limited or a ploy to get people in store. Some stores didn't know what I was on about
Who would've thought it...a ploy to get you into a PoundLand

Hahaha
A PLOY TO GET YOU INTO THEIR STORES THEY WOULDN’T DO THAT WOULD THEY ??
Well I have seen Supermarkets dare a lot more, using methods that are, well you decide !!!
One ASDA I used to go into would stack full price goods on shelving marked PRICE REDUCED TO CLEAR and despite being reported to Trading standards they continued to do it and the department manager used to blame trainee staff, when in fact it was himself that used to do it (I had a relative working there).
Seen the same thing in a TESCO, if you make them aware of a problem once, you hope something will be done, twice is unfortunate, after the third time and threats of being Barred you know that something’s not right.
Not talking about (mistakes) one or 2 items moved by customers, but cases of items, in one instance I was told that a customer must have moved 20 odd duvet sets LOL.
One manageress was in the process of promising me the price of a display of shirts had been reduced but I interupted her and pointed out the original price was printed on the item label and it was the same as the price on shelf and what was charged at till.
One year ASDA had a NEW YEAR SALE PROMOTION and at least 90% of the items in the so called sale were still FULL PRICE some of them still had the pre-printed price on the labels and that was the price on the shelf (with a SALE ticket next to it) as well as full length shelving SALE labelling AND LARGE SALE SIGNS HANGING FROM CEILING.
The displays had just been set out, 2 whole aisles, I spoke to General Manager who agreed that there was something wrong and that he would get it sorted. I asked if I could take a few pictures so as to emphasise the point when I took the matter up with ASDA HOUSE he agreed and as he walked away he spoke to someone on the phone telling them there was a big problems with the SALE.
I was taking a few pics and the non food department manager came over and told me YOU CANT DO THAT. YES I can and told him I had permission, he called over 4 members of staff and had them stripping off the SALE labelling and signs as fast as they could. So it was obvious he knew there was a problem, yet he had been happy enough to have the staff set it out in the first place. The same SALE was a NATIONAL one, stores are given exact shelf plans/drawings showing what items and where they go, how much they are etc, I contacted Trading Standards who contacted ASDA. The SALE went on for almost a week in some stores. I received a letter from ASDA CEO stating it had been a mistake on the part of their marketing department.
So if I could spot the obvious, why couldn’t the in-store Management ???

£5 - that's a rob, should be a pound.
Good luck finding one of these. Been after one myself. They have been £5 for a few months now when they were reduced after last years black friday event.
