    I'm gutted - the wardrobe was just about to buy has just sold out/vanished from M&S website.

    I've been wanting the Hastings wardrobe, bedside table and chest of drawers set from M&S for about 2 months and it was online yesterday but I go to buy it today and then the wardrobe has disappeared, but the other bits are there.
    Do M&S have an outlet or anywhere they might have a spare? I went to see it the other week and it was perfect! I'll be phoning them on Tuesday as they're probably closed for bank holiday, pooooooooooooo.

    There you go. Just search for it online.

    Daily Mail = insane paper, but I am sure you can see past that.

    Please give me heat.

    Many thanks.

    Apologies, just followed the link, it's showing out of stock online now too.

    I run a fitted wardrobe company if you would consider fitted wardrobes. I am not scoping for business before someone moans, just an idea for you.

    Thanks for the help, it's appreciated. Actually we are planning on replacing a fitted wardrobe (Sharps fitted it and it's a really bad use of space, and part of it fell off onto my head whilst sleeping which required stitches so just want rid!)
    Though we are getting a fitted cupboard as well for a little awkward bit of space and we've just OK'd a local carpenter to do it otherwise I'd have been really interested in your suggestions for the space.
    The room is quite small and the Hastings range was perfect as it was compact, and places like John Lewis and Laura Ashley quite a lot more expensive.

    Sharps and Hammonds are my mortal enemies!!! I have worked as a 'Sales Designer' for both, but had enough of being paid to lie, and sell inferior product. Shouldn't really say it on here, as I am expecting a threat of court action any day since they spoke to my solicitor! But until very recently the stuff both of them sold was readily available at B & Q. Standard sizes, bulked out by massive infill panels.
    Sorry rant over.
    Good luck finding the wardrobes you are looking for. I'd keep an eye on the selling off websites, halfcost.co.uk I think they are called, they sell off good quality furniture I think.
    My God, I just read the bit you wrote about the Sharps robe falling on you!!! I hope you called and are threatening to sue? They will pay out no worries I reckon, threaten them with the afore mentioned Daily Mirror! They really can't afford anymore bad publicity.

    Hi - don't know whereabouts you live but in Wirral (North West) there is a shop that sells returned\ cancelled M&S furniture. Don't know if there are any of these shops elsewhere but I can try and find out a bit more on Tuesday and maybe get their phone number if you are interested. They may even ship stuff for you?? Good luck.

    Oooh, I will give the outlet centres mentioned a call, and that place which has some M&S furniture returns in Wirrel it would be really good to know more about them, though I live down south so it depends if they do delivery.
    I did call M&S who said that they should be bringing it back online sometime (hmmm, a bit vague) but it's been 20% off for a month and when/if they bring it back it will be full price - it's so frustrating. I don't know whether to buy the other bits at 20% off and hope the wardrobe comes back in stock or not. I will try calling the places choc mentioned to see if they have any and if they deliver and try find out more about the Wirrel place. Thanks guys, rep given out.


    Edit: Thanks choc for adding the telephone numbers, I've not heard of these places but googling now and I hope they have what I want and deliver. I'll be phoning them tomorrow - lets hope they are open on then bank holiday Monday THANK YOU!

    The Sharps wardrobe was put in about 8 years ago and it turns out this wooden part was just stuck on with double sided sticky tape which is why it fell off...unfortunately onto my head. I thought about threatening to sue but I'm not sure I have it in me to fight them (I haven't been very well) and they'll probably say it's 8 years old blah blah blah. I would never go near Sharps ever again, nor accept them offering to replace it. No way. But I do really want this M&S one!!
