we went-around ten oclock-queues were insane-mrs barky bought a few hundred quids worth of stuff and then we were nearly an hour in the queue for the tills-was all a bit mad tbh.

Why would you go to a next sale when its like that, half of the stuff is sh...., i'll probably have a look in the january sales though ( at a normal time )

I went to Middlebrook Bolton about 9.45. Got loads of good stuff, spent around £200. Wasnt THAT busy and was served straight away. In fact they were still putting good stock out when I left.

went to one once abt ten years ago, absolutely insane i thought!

sunderland, the bridges - got there about 7.10am with er indoors

not bad really - busy, certainly busier than 5.10am last year

spent about £220

queues were big but staff were really quick and it went down in a few mins

all done and dusted by just about 8am

Coatbridge Retail Park around half 10 this morning with my son. Busy but not bad at all.

Really happy, got some great things for my boy and myself, spent around £200.

Queued for maybe 2 minutes max. Easy.

ohhh most of you got really lucky
i queue for almost an hour
just for my baby;s stuff, spend a hundred but well chuffed
tomorow will pop by again after church , also going for John Lewis sales x

Manchrester was Manic @ The Trafford Centre.
I think that the NEXT Sale are a waste of time going early as they aint stupid cos I think they generaly sell mostly their old Cr*p stock and few recent stuff first
(Probably Last Xmas leftovers thrown in too) :o)

are there sales ever any good or is it just the usual tat they want to get rid of and because it says SALE people think they need to spend hundreds and they are gettin a good deal?

I love Next stuff, went about at 12 noon, still mayhem, no queue at home section though, bought clothes for £350.

next sales might not be the best, but is good for me x

their baby clothes are better in my opinion, you just need to pick n choose

the same style of kids t shirt cost 7.99 in Zara ( i like to shop there as well) but is only 4.99/5.99 in NEXT, i knew cuz i went to both this morning and did some comparison

thats why i try and stay out of primark at all costs lol

its like watching 100s of different episodes of Jeremy Kyle at once

seems like the credit crunch hasn't tied anyone down in this thread

went to Bluewater and it looked liked the kids section had been ransacked got no clothes for my 9 year old boy and spent £40 on next size up clothes for my little girl and a quick look for me and OH bit not much there and couldn't be bothered! Thankfully no queues otherwise i would of put the bits back. I wasn't like 2 years ago whan i was 9 months pregnant and queued for 2 1/2 hours :w00t:

I went to Next Norwich this morning, well I say went, I didn't actually go in. When I got there just before 8am, there was a huge queue to get in the store which was at least 150m - 200m long, I only wanted couple of pairs of boots that I didn't manage to get in the VIP Sale so I wasn't willing to queue for just them. I then went to the smaller Next at Riverside and whilst that wasn't as busy, the stupid people at Next had designed the queue so it went around the store so people were standing in front of the shelves / rails so you couldn't see anything (and they would not move to let you look - stupid cows!)

In the end I gave up, it is not worth the hassle!

NEXT - wasting your time!!!

+1 dont really like the fit of next clothing, I find its made for bigger kids, I tend to stick to baker its a slimmer fit for my LO
