Hugely Reduced Toys at Waitrose

Hugely Reduced Toys at Waitrose

Found 8th Aug 2008
Just been to my local Waitrose (Sheffield) and they were reducing a number of toys by large amounts.

I picked up a Barbie Singing Island Princess for £1.50 (down from £8.50!) and a Kid KNEX puppy set for £1.99 (down from £7.99) They also had a Penguin KNEX set for the same amount.

They had another Barbie Island Princess for £2.99, some Playmobil sets and a make your own bracelet type set. I didn't see how much these were I'm afraid.

They were in the middle of reducing them as I was there so there may be other things added to the list! These would make lovely cheap presents for childrens birthday parties!

How do you find out if your local store has toys? Do most of them? I haven't been in our local one - St Albans - but would go to look at these offers if I knew they had toys.
Thank you loads for this post - not so much for the toys, but because I hadn't realised there was a Waitrose in Sheffield! Fab!
Sheffield Waitrose is one of the better branches throughout the country - good value reductions, good choice, peaceful shop, very friendly staff... There are many Waitrose shops down here in London but none is as nice as the Sheffield one. Therefore I doubt whether the other shops would reduce their toys in line with the OP.
Probably because most of us non-Southerners are generally too tight to shop in Waitrose, hence the stores are always half-empty!

In case anyone hasn't seen it, Waitrose are doing an on-line ordering service which you can then (I think) have delivered or collect in store. It costs £3 if you're collecting, but at the moment they're offering £15 off a £50 shop if you use the code SAVE15. You can use it twice per person. It's probably posted in more detail on here somewhere, I saw it on MSE a couple of weeks ago and just thought I'd mention it.
Thanks. I'll investigate. I'm stocking up for Christmas.
