Cheaper and better quality than the crappy Poundland vintage offer someone posted this morning!! oO

I thought i got a good deal with my Matalan £5 12 piece dinner set but this is a way better deal, as i just bought 4 mugs for £1.99 and i'm still trying to find cheap decant cuttlery and glasses ! Voted hot.

Bah, unavailable at my local store. Oh well, I probably don't need more cutlery/tableware anyway, living alone and all.

If you're looking for decent cutlery try wilkos they've got half price kitchen and home sales and there's a set for £3.86 at my local store.

Because only students use cheap tableware? Does everyone buy bone China, crystal glasses and ivory cutlery upon leaving uni?

I've had to throw most of the last dinner set I bought away (bought from sainsburys) if you put a plate down hard it just chipped away. Does anyone know if theres something I should be looking for when buying dinner sets? I've not had an issue with other sets I've bought (including a cheap wilko one as well as a China one)

We've found that heavy 'pottery' type plates which are often dearer, are the ones that chip and crack the most. There's probably a name for it but it escapes me! It's a matt finish and is just complete crap. Some of the finer more delicate plates we have had for years have been far more durable.

I bought last night and someone rang this morning to say they were discontinued and won't get any more in stock

got a set from Argos £12 was £25 found them really good Cutlery i got was around £50i only paid £20 from M&S better to get separate all the fancy dinner sets never last long
great deal heat added

Did you buy instore, or do you mean you reserved online and they phoned to cancel?

Ok, I've been off today as we went out to lunch. We reserved two dinner sets.

Got a text before lunch to say we could collect. Then a couple of minutes later got a phone call saying that none were in stock.

We had also ordered two picnic blankets and she looked those up and said they were also oos.

I said we were on our way to the store and had a confirmation text saying they did have them and we woulld like to speak to the manager!

She said she would speak to the manager and call back.

Lo and behold, she called back to say they did have them!

Persist, and they may miraculously find stock 'out the back'!

What a cheek posting that. At least that poster took the time to post up a deal which is a lot more than you have done - not one deal posted by you so dont be slating those that DO post them up.

Well said.

theyre just plain and very traditional but great value, good for students and men.

I ordered mine yesterday from the Preston branch but got a call from them today to say they don't actually have them in stock despite what the web site says. So ended up just picking up the 29p barrel mugs.

We asked in store how reserving on line works.

They are not like argos where the items are held back from the ordering system.

Dunelm say that there computer system for all stores shows stock levels in each branch.

The stock is already out on the shop floor. It cannot account for an item that has been picked up by a customer and is in their basket or trolley but hasn't gone through the till. It cannot account for damaged stock that staff have removed out the back.

So when you reserve, the stock is there. BUT then the staff get the online reservations sent to them BUT are not able to act on picking it up off the shop floor immediately as they may be serving or shelf filling etc.

This leaves a window where the items can be bought by an instore customer.

The text is sent out by the central computer system who on their system have the item as being available.

The phone call to cancel is made by instore staff who upon looking for your item discover they no longer have it as it is in a customers basket or just been sold.

That is what was explained to us yesterday.

that sounds fishy to me. stock doesn't sell that quickly, sounds like either the staff pick up online orders at the end of the day and you get a set if there's anything left, or the management/staff cant be arsed to check each online item that's been ordered, put it in baskets, match them to whats been paid for, courier them out etc.

my friend worked in a garden centre and said that's what happened there. they offered an online option to customers but staff were too busy to manage it and keep up with it and managers said it took up too much of their day, so they texted the customers they were sold out even when stocks were high.

reserved 2 sets when deal was posted, collected today. nice set for the price. value for money

collected from mansfield store yesterday. great starter dinnerware set, shame the mugs are not really big enough to be called mugs though

Ordered yesterday afternoon on line but got a call from the store this morning to say no stock. Poor system!
