Found 20th Feb 2008Made hot 20th Feb 2008
just a heads up from friday this week any leisure furniture and sundries from last summer that stores still have will be getting drastically reduced.most stores will have some stock(stores get asked to palletise and store stock at end of each season) some stores will have loads.the new range is due in stores over next few weeks so stores have been asked to drop and sell through the old stock. the reduced prices will come through the system on friday morning.

Those taking advantage of the Grampian range at Tesco Direct, look out for the Winchester range as they are identical.

Most of you people working at B&Q haven't heard a thing about any offers, no offence but you were all stunned recently when people were walking out with alarm systems worth over £250 down to £64. Or the £4.95 ones that I've still got in the attic waiting to be sold on for a nice profit :thumbsup:

That's the beauty of HUKD.
We find out about the deal before the staff know

trading managers receive bulletins of whats happening upto a week ahead. price info comes down on a wednesday.the shelf prices are changed either thursday evening or friday before opening.was told some items could be upto 90% off but icant confirm that yet

I knew there was a reason for my overtime on Saturday

The problem is that B&Q never change the price tags in store....so you have to find otu what's cheap here and then go run it through the till to check later.

best way to check is look for a member of staff with a scanning gun on the shop floor.they can scan it to check price for you before you go to the till

it's rare for a misprice in my store. Is this with all items or just things on special offer?

It's not a misprice but they are reduced but just not put on the sel

I see. Well it depends on the length of the offer. If it's a few days it's counter productive to have the regular price labels binned, new ones put up and then replaced again in a few days. The furniture should have red clearance labels on them on Friday since they are not on the shelf right now.

hope this isn't a silly question but do they sell conservatory furniture? and it is included in this clearance? thanks =)

What time of day is best to go? Will they be putting the stuff out Friday or the night before?

correct but as people have said b&q are notorious for not having clearance labels up when they should have.i have seen the stats from store audits and every store hasd been caught with pricing errors on the list i saw.

So what sort of stuff will actually be reduced? Suites etc?

I would imagine it would be done on Friday morning as it'll need a forklift to get most stuff down, and the store should be closed when this happens. I was asked to work at 9 on Friday so it should all be done by then...I would've been asked just to cope with all the extra customers, I guess.

Never hurts to phone before you go, though, save yourself hassle.

Finding a coherent member of staff in my local B&Q is much like expecting particle physicists to work in Maccy D's.

If it's not too stupid a question - where should we look for these items? My local store is massive and I had a hellavu time finding the deals before, as they weren't in the normal place.

Will this stuff be all together in one place, or around the store, or near the entrance, or...?

Thanks.

Good question.. and also can anyone else actually confirm this is going to happen? Don't B&Q normally put adverts in the national press the day before (or is that just for the "when its gone its gone" offers)?
The last B&Q offer I used on HUKD was great (last year, for a trampoline) - but I think I will wait until tomorrow before voting this hot....

My brother has just come in from work (at B&Q) and i told him about this thread he works on gardening and has not been told anything. He has been marking down alot of things like birdfood (now costing pennies) and says there are some good deals about, but this may just be our store (Wallasey Wirral) which is getting a total makeover.

Overtime:shock: we are not allowed overtime at the moment or even take lou hours.

I work there and have check it out and there is nothing on garden furniture:?:?

Just looked online at last years Winchester seat pads - still £19.98 for a pair.
diy.com/diy…826
Infact looking at all garden furniture online and this is the only reduced furniture set i could find diy.com/diy…lse was all this heat really worth such a saving?

BTW Head office discounts are shown online, it's only individual store discounts that are not.

Just been down to store at Brampton, Rotherham - nothing obvious there, certainly no old garden sets on display . If you want birdseed however ..... it`s going cheep :w00t:

Just been to Cwmbran - nothing obvious there either. Didn't look for bird seed though! I did notice that they had rather tired looking boxes up high but not sign of them being brought down unfortunately

one in belfast nothing but picked up a load of low voltage 20W light fittings now at 50 pence for a pack of two
p.s. thats the one in boucher road

Nothing to be seen in the Chippenham store. I asked and apparently the new stock has come in (though not on display) and there will be a sale of last year's but no idea when.

Even the bird seed isn't that cheap - about 20% off, so nothing to crow about

Ha typical.

I love how everyone votes something hot when it isn't even happened yet!
Same thing with Dixons Hour Madness etc...

Well I'm voting COLD

I've been in 2 B&Q this morning for something else, and no cheap garden stuff instore in either sunderland branch

To be fair to the OP he didn't say they would be all on display Friday everywhere, just the prices would change on Friday and the store will be getting rid of it before the new stock arrives in a few weeks

this is my first post so i hope its alright
I ve been at work all day at B&Q ,working in the pricing side and i have not heard anything about reduceing garden stuff .i have been checking all day as i would love some cheap garden furniture,,all that what was on the price change this week was some garden furniture reduced by 20 to 30 pound ,no bargains ,the bird care stuff is 50 % off ,it may say 20% off as staff as not changed it .as i got a lovely bird table reduced from £29.98 to £14 .48. if anyone is intrested in the £1 boxes they got reduced to 50 p last week .i hope this helps some one ,

forgot all about this thread.. we have a lot of garden furniture but it never came down from storage.. so the deal wasn't valid, I don't think!
