thats a steal wow

That's hot.

cant be nationwide, or can it? lets find out

HOT!!! Does anybody know if this is available in the WHSmiths in Trafford Centre?

I guess it depends on the staff being either stupid, or disliking WHSmiths, otherwise they may double check that price(which could be correct I guess):w00t:

can anyone confirm this at any other branches?

else i'll go and find out this eve.

WHSmiths will often heavily discount old stock to get rid of them, eg boxes of Xmas cards originally priced £5.99 selling for 25p in January.

However if an item comes up on a till for £0.01 then it is an item which has been previously missed on a weekly check for removal from display and is not supposed to still be on sale. The 1p isn't a price for selling to the public but an indicator to staff that the item is erroneously on display

Till people will often still sell it to the customer at 1p to keep them happy, but then should immediately tell the staff on that section to remove the rest of the stock from the shop floor.

It is possible people could find this item in other WHSmiths for 1p if the stationary person in that branch also happened to miss it on a weekly stock returns list.

Why on earth is this getting heat? A 'Tesco Yellow Sticker' in one store is not worthy of 300 degrees!!

Out of curiosity, why did the OP leave the other 2 on the shelf? I would have bagged them all!!!

This is nationwide, but staff at checkout in Chorley refused to put it through at 1p. They said it was a discontinued line which defaulted to 1p, but they said they were open to offers - so picked it up for £1.

I didn't want to be greedy and left the other 2 in the hope that somebody else might benefit from such a good deal :whistling:
(Oh alright then, the honest truth?.. I didn't even realise until I'd got back home and checked my receipt, otherwise I too would have bagged the lot)

Awesome, I'd love to be able to write some calligraphy, anyone have any tips or websites that they'd recommend?

wow heat added

Cheers OP,

I got the last two from Mander Centre, Wolves.
They were priced up at £19.99 on the shelves.

Thx once again

Found last one at my local store, idiot at the counter refused to sell it to me for 1p. Instead tried to charge me £19.99. I argued with him and called in the supervisor who refused. I am going in tomorrow to speak to the manager as the manager was not there today. They did say they will save it for me but I doubt it. Probably the greedy staff will buy it themselves.

lol you left 2 behind? Er did you only have 1p exactly in your wallet? thats rediculous
