Vivitar Look & Listen 8x30 binoculars + headphones for £1.00 in store @ B&M

Found 30th Mar 2013
In their newish B&M Home Store in Milton Keynes was chatting to a member of staff about so many items not having shelf-edge labels = defeats the object of a self-service store...

She drew my attention to Vivitar Look & Listen binoculars/headphone set that she had just put a fresh SEL on for £1.00 reduced from £7.xx - which based on US websites eg Walmart (only place I can see them listed) was around £20+.

Got a set for my folks to leave in their car. Haven't checked quality yet - certainly worth £1 I'd hope!

Had at least half a dozen more sets in MK Friday lunchtime. She printed me a copy of the SEL just in case till computer wasn't showing it - but it was. I don't know if B&M prices are uniform across the country...

Bit more info:
Vivitar VIV-LD-830
Barcode 6-81066-84204-1 [didn't come up with anything Googling]
& UK stock based on Vivitar address on packaging.
They were in the aisle with computer/electrical/headphone accessories [about mid-store in MK] and in a blister pack, not box.
B&M Home Store in Milton Keynes = where the standalone PC World used to be, a block SE from MKC Railway Station.

Not just a philosophical point. Stores that don't have prices attached to each individual item are required by law to have shelf prices posted. Not that trading standards are prepared to get off their butts and do anything about it. Home Bargains are another frequent offender.

Confirms (a) assistant's story that were £7 something until she did new SEL for them; (b) that multiple stores stocking them at least.

IF B&M's pricing is national & SEL maintenance poor generally, then potentially still more left around the country still marked as £7.50 but hopefully also reduced to £1.

(BTW: Getting my days mixed up - it was Thursday lunchtime there was still at least half-a-dozen left in MK store, not Friday.)

Listing has been removed.

These will be poor quality (but for a quid who cares). B&M fill shelves and then put up prices - I have often needed to ask when new items are stocked but they are always very helpful.

Sorry guyz - feel guilty for posting now - opened the pack at my folks before Easter Lunch - they are so lightweight and 'cheap' - don't really think they are "8x" based on looking at items in their short garden, though they do have some binocular function! Anyway definitely worth a £1 for the case and as a novelty item for the kids and/or the headphones I think. BTW they do have 4 lens caps and soft eye pieces! (Though didn't test the microphone feature - there is a button battery in them to power it.) Reckon the kids being 'super-agents' observing/hearing 'afar' = their level.
