Matalan up to half price sale - starts tomorrow (friday)

38
Found 13th Mar 2008Made hot 13th Mar 2008
Was instore today and noticed lots of signs up saying the half price sale starts tomorrow.

I also noticed that the things that were going into the sale(?) had the tickets marked with a flourescent line on the back.

If this helps one person - then my job is done
If it helps more, then warm me up!

Ideal might make a trip there - brilliant for baby bits - especially when they grow out of everything so fast!!
Thanks cassieismydoggie!:thumbsup:

Spotted a few nice bits and pieces instore today. There seemed quite a few items marked on the back - so hopefully they will be the ones going down.

Just spent 35 pounds in thier yesterday, will see if anything has come down & re buy & return the items for money back, Thanks cassieismydoggie, heat n rep

Check your labels to see if they have been marked ready for reducing - not sure when they get their markdown lists.

are they any vouchers available for matalan please

No, but if you have a Matalan card and a NUS Extra card (for students) you can get an extra 10% off.

The flouresent line on the barcode, is NOT the reduced items, it is Matalans best sellers.

My mistake then, only I used to work for New Look and we used to do something similar for sale items.

The matalan store where i worked at highlighted all the barcodes on sale items a day or two before the actual sale started :whistling:

anyone that has purchased anything at full price take your receipt along with you and if what you bought has been reduced now,purchase it at the tills,then go right to CS with the item and your full price receipt and get a full refund..saves two journeys.

This helps me! I'm going on holiday next week and was due to go shopping this weekend. Sorted!

by the way, anyone know if its all Matalan ? or only some

Nice one I'll check it out

Thanks. Always good for t-shirts!! Given heat :thumbsup:

I'll be there thanks heat added

Nice find thanks...:thumbsup:

Thanks Trisham, that's what I thought. They do that so they can identify sale items and merchandise them/mark them down more easily when it starts.:thumbsup:

Cool. Does anyone know when the sale ends?

Well i must of worked in 8 that all did it wrong, oh and my mother must be a rubbish store manager also...needless to say she is in a different area, and agrees with what i say :-)

No worries, not all stores do the same:)
Just a pointer for some to look out for, that's all.

thats ok,but i do know the store i worked in highlighted all the sale items as they could be easily identified when it came to re merchandising them...theres really no need to be so condecending in your statement above.

and prolly a really silly question/statement..why on earth would anyone spend their time highlighting the barcodes on items because they are the best sellers..if they are that good a seller then they arent on the rails long enough for anyone to highlight them and having worked for matalan as long as you have you will know that they aint exactly flush when it comes to staffing levels in their stores and i dont see them paying someone to stand and highlight barcodes so they know that they are a good seller lol

Nice one. Will try to take an early and extended lunch break on Friday.... Ta.:thumbsup:

Possiby for some kind of reverse consumer psychology?

what a load of b~~~~~ks some people talk, of course the line through the bar code
is for reduced items , do they think they would employ sales people to go around
and mark the best sellers, duh no the till computers do that automatically, just go and grab a bargain
ps Don't forget the matalan clearance store near metro centre gateshead tyne and wear where you can
pick up dresses for 20p and most items tops etc for 50p. be quick x

And the highlighted items are done when tagged, i.e at the despatch watehouse. Not instore by the floor staff.
Reduced items have the reduced price tag on, so why highlight them when they are put into the till system anyway, (hence the reason why staff work overtime the night before, to put them through the till with the reduced price) The store you worked at may be different, but am saying the ones i was at were'nt.
And to answer your question, best sellers are highlighted, so the store staff know how to display, the bestsellers (ones in the catalouge) are made priority by putting at front of store etc.....makes sense does'nt it!?!

I dont suppose i could call upon such expertise to ask if the baby bit has much in the sale? i.e neutral coloured stuff? i seen a cute white jacket a few weeks ago with the supersoft lining that i wanted to get and i'd be chuffed if it was in the sale. Yes i am just being lazy but it saves me bump and small boy who hates shopping a trip if i knew if it was marked down :thumbsup:

Would be quicker and cheaper to use the catalogue to merchandise bestsellers instead of paying someone to highlight the tens of thousands of individual items, would it not? Also, how would H/O know which are bestsellers if they havent been on the shopfloor yet?
The purpose of marking on the reverse is to enable sale clothing to be merchandised before the price actually gets marked down. It also makes it quicker to mark down as you have already identified which items are to be reduced.
Silly argument anyway.
If they do it in some stores (not your then maybe we have helped some people.

ideal just been and got loads of stuff for new nephew!! they also have loads of big suitcases for 7.50!!

Glad you found some bargains!:thumbsup:

The baby clothes, some are reduced but obviously not the new stock. Been and got some neutral bits and bobs but its going fast.

Voted hot, forgot yesterday, rep given.

thanks, got some half price bedding, heat added

Do they sell school uniforms at Matalan? Seems like several people in this thread will be needing them...

Thanks for the tip, I am not embarrassed to admit Matalan is my favourite clothes shop, well actually I am a little embarrassed to admit it - but still, yay sale.

Got some jeans for £6 this morning. Thanks for the heads up. Been after some nice quality jeans for a while now.

Nothing nice for men, shirt and top wise in the sale though. (as always)
