sale toys 75% off @ Boots (in Store only)

Went into Boots today and picked up a couple of toys expecting to pay half price but when they were scanned, they had 75% off.

Playskool Digger the Dog reduced from £10 to £2.50
MegaBloks Jumbo Bag reduced to £4.99 ( I think were £20 originally)

Might be worth popping in if you are passing to see what they have left in your local store.....

I paid for the items with my advantage card points and I checked the receipt. The shelves were not marked with the reduced prices either. There was just this display of toys near the till with no price info and when I took the dog toy to be scanned the staff member told me it was £2.50.

There was some ELC Post Office sets, Dora the Explorer toys, and some Fisher Price Baby toys on the display too.

Wrapping paper was still only 50% off though.

Spotted some Lego that was £3.50, and Mega Blocks sets that were £5. Started today then!

Boots seem to be reducing their toys by 75% gradually this year. I went in today and saw quite a few items that had been reduced down by 75% but every single thing that had been reduced by that much was gone - just the empty shelf and the price ticket.Sorry,cant remember much of it but there was a Waybuloo Playset that had been £30 reduced to £7.50 which I was gutted I had missed out on. I don't know when they did it - maybe over the weekend? There were also still loads of toys on the 50% aisles that have not been reduced yet.

lol did you just get back now, long shop hahaha

I was kidding. Honest !!!! lol

Any sign of 75% off gift sets yet?

75% started in most stores last week. Nothing left in my local branch. Still waiting for the gift sets to be reduced though

Hardly anything left in my local branch

think it depneds on the stores and the area. my biggest on in Nottingham still only had 1/2 price yesterday (haven't been out today). one friend has told me that it was going to start wednesday, another has said that it would be at the end of the month.

is there any news of the boots online sale at all??

Opinion seems divided between it starting tomorrow, next week or not happening at all this year. Time will tell.

not in Wokingham - might be worth putting in the title that it's not all stores

just been to my local large boots store.in luton and sale items were still only 50% off.do they start reducing tems during the day.? as all other years it was always the wednesday before my daughters birthday. but no sign of it today.

still half price items in chatham!

asked in the blackpool store today and was told they get 24hrs notice before the 75% sale and that could be anytime between now and the week after next, which would be the end of jan

someone stated on here that it was starting today......went there and no 75% off!!! aarrgghhh!!

It was supposed to be today, they even sent 75%off tickets to the stores. It was called off last minute no idea why.

i went early today to find NO 75% OFF?? GUTTED

was told 75% off is delayed as they had poor sales due to snow, and they are still selling enough at 50%... will try to get new date for 75% but there is nothing much good left at my nearest one anyway

Loads of stuff left in 1 of my locals, was really disappointed that they weren't 75%

i went early today to find NO 75% OFF?? GUTTED



same here...asked the peson of staff,they said that this year there wont be 75% off

No 75% off this year?? They can't do that lol! How else am I meant to do my birthday shop for the year?? I too went to my local Boots this morning to be disappointed. I've been going to the sale for the last 4 years and its always a Tue or Wed. Last year it was the 3rd week in Jan but every other year its been this week.

Went to day to Gloucester branch staff were saying they dont get told till 24hrs before of 75%

i went to my local store at metro centre on wednesday and theres was still half price and i heard it may be next week its 75% off xx

Just been into my local boots store at 9am! as this week for the past 5 years I have took advantage of the 75% off sale, but everything still 50% off, and I even heard a customer ring the store and must of been asking about the 75% sale, as I heard the assistant say "we had an e mail on Tuesday night and everything is staying at 50%! BOO!!!!!!!!!! " it didn't sound like they were doing 75% sale this year, but it won't stop me keep trying!

I rang the Boots Head Office to ask if they were reducing the sale items to 75% and she said they may not be reducing them any further this year oO

No 75% off sale this year....ouch

what are they gonna do with all the stock? there was LOADS left in the fosse park leicester store today - still seems like people are holding off buying until the 75% off starts.... highlight of my year - sad i know!!

A friend of mine works at boots and she has confirmed that the 75% sale starts tomorrow 19th January.

i really hope its on tomoz

has anyone been to boots today yet?

They are updating their website now...

75% off stock in my boots was pretty rubbish - lots of bobby pins notebooks & Fearne Cotton make up boxes, nothing like previous years when I seemed to get lots of good things
