Fill up a bag for £5 instore @ Maplin - NORTHAMPTON STORE

45
LocalFound 13th Jun
The local maplin is shutting down today and they have a "full the bag for £5" promo running. If the item won't fit in the bag ask to have it included, my store just let me add it on! Must have got about £50 worth of stuff.

Loads of cables, signal amplifiers and quite a bit of audio equipment, amps, switches etc.

Act fast as I think today is the last day for most stores

EDIT**
THIS WAS IN THE NORTHAMPTON STORE

Which store
which store is it please?
This is very store specific. Birmingham closed down a couple of weeks ago and that was very good prices for cash. Staff didn't seem to be too disappointed at the store closure.
Hi @k44nuyd thanks for sharing, can you add which Maplin store was offering this to your opening post please
Also what stuff was left?
Clutter anyone???

Does anyone know if this is in any Scotland stores specifically in Lanarkshire?
Poor management that's for sure RIP Maplin..

Ah, fellow Northamptonian.

May take a wander down. Not sure I need many cables and stuff, but they always used to have such niche chargers for stuff - and I wouldnt say no to some more batteries!

6. Amazon to blame
11. I don't know what you'd do without us.
12. Go to amazon?

Their demise is purely down to poor management. They refused to price their items similar to its competitors. I've always bought goods from its competitors. Very VERY rarely bought from Maplins, despite always looking at their website or prices instore. You don't keep up then you lose in the retail world.

Is this the last store in the country to close?

I did mention it was on the website so a national offer, it wasn't important where i got it from.
Maplin is actually a pretty complex case, with various levels of holding companies loaning it money at high interest rates to extract money out of the business. Not that it was a stunning business recently (bad times for retail), but it got bled dry from above.

Yet you still added it in after a comment mentioned a lack of location... Humble pie mate.

Doubt it. I passed the Hamilton branch yesterday which is already shut and listed Glasgow as the nearest alternative.
fill up a bag for £0 at maplin stores nationwide (if you can outrun security)

I posted the pic purely to show the staff on the ground floor had a sense of humour, not the rights or wrongs of the business model of their masters!

I know but its still partially true.
no chance to survive if their DDR1 ram was still on sell until the other day at over £50 for 128mb, lol
Worcester has nothing of note left. Shame the staff have lost their jobs, but not sad to see Maplin go in the slightest, even with their clearance sale they were still overpriced.
Are they all closed today

Are they all closed today


Last day for final shops this weekend.
Walked passed the London City branch so walked in. Many left over times like power cables, phone cables and plugs, wall plates and batteries. They were disassembling the shelves around us. Very sad.

I’m 46yo and never been in a Maplin.
How many scart leads can you get in a carrier bag?
Is the Boston store closed does anyone know?

Nah, if it's a national offer on website there's no particular need to reveal location, him adding it in after an admin said doesn't mean it was actually necessary. I was amused at your spot, but he's still right.

Don't worry you haven't missed much, can't believe they stayed open this long
