Any lovely people happen to be passing by BHS in Oxford Street anytime soon?

Found 7th Dec 2010
Evening all!

Following on from the title - I saw a gorgeous dressing gown in BHS at Lakeside today and (as I am sure you ladies will understand) I cannot rest until I've got it LOL!!!

Unfortunately they didn't have my size in stock and it isn't in stock on the website but the assistant told me that the nearest store with them in stock is the Oxford Street branch which has 4. It costs £30 and I could probably phone the store and ask them to reserve one for me but there is no way I can get down there in the foreseeable future.

I was wondering/hoping that someone here may happen to be passing by the store this week and wouldn't mind picking one up for me and sending it to me? I am willing to cover postage costs, of course and I would be so, SO, SOOOOOOO greatful ;-D

I had a similar situation with an item from NEXT last month and the beautiful Marina picked an item up for me and sent it to me, so I am not ready to mess anyone about I have done this before and have also tried to do the same for someone else (unfortunately the item wasn't in stock though so I wasn't able to help them)

So, anyone please??? x x x

Why not phone the Oxford Street branch and ask them to it post to you?

Hiya, I phoned them when I got home and they said that they can't do that from the store - only if I order through their computer system and have it sent from the warehouse, which I can't as it isn't on stock on the system. They also said they aren't able to transfer it to a nearer store for me

Thanks for the suggestion, though

no more stock coming in?

oxford st is manic at the mo....good luck

I'm up there on Fri/Sat if you have no luck let me know, I'm more than happy to pick it up for you

Aww, thanks so much
If you don't mind picking it up then I can 'buy' it from you on the FS section - when Marina did it for me she insisted that I didnt pay anything until I received the item but I understand that not everyone would be comfortable with that and this is more expensive.
If you would rather me pay upfront then I don't mind sending you the money as you are a trustworthy member, as long as you are sure that you are going then I can reserve the robe for you

Aww, well have fun - hope it's not toooooo crazy busy for you, the shops were manic today even from shop opening time.
Dunno if you've been before, but Covent Garden has some cool street acts going on during the day and the bicycle taxis are a fun little adventure
Well done for achieving what you have x x x

I don't have a usual habit of asking people to pick things up for me, just wanted you to know I hadn't forgot you and how much I appreciated you doing it for me and wanted people to see that I am trustworthy as I have done this before
