According to MSE it is. But they said the same 2 weeks ago. Check on line before you set off.

The site usually goes down around midnight and back up in early hours on the night the 75% starts

I finally went in to collect my Soap & Glory tote bag yesterday and girl said it was starting this Wednesday. She said staff were allowed to put some things by for themselves

Suppose every job has got to have its perks

I dont think it shows online till the very early hours

arghhh i hate these subtle hints of disgust that staff can put stuff aside for themselves.

Don't think it was meant like that!

All shops where there is a sale staff are allowed a quantity. I temped one christmas at next and we got first pick it was fab!

I am in agreement with matt3454 on this, its a bit rubbish that we can roll our eyes at the boots staff for being able to put things aside, lets face it, we ALL would, in fact I would be surprised if some of the most popular stuff wasnt put aside even before its hit the Xmas shelves by the staff just for this sale, and if they haven't or their boss is a proper jobsworth and doesnt allow it, then they have missed a trick.

Its like thinking the folk from Next really dont go through the sale stock before they put it out, or that the really really good electrical bargains in stores dont tempt staff........I work for a well known hotel chain and as soon as we get the heads up on holiday offers I am on it........it really IS perks of the jobs, we all have different ones.

Although to be fair to Bossy, I am sure her's wasn't 100% serious

No as I said every job has got to have its perks. Girl told me that they all chose some stuff but strangely enough the male staff didnt bother!

I am going to stay away this year I think as dont need anything and spend too much anyway in that store!

oooooooooooo we could be here hours good job i got the day off (i rang this morning when i heard about the sale )
im after the no7 sets soap and glory mens sets ,ruby and millie sets, nivia sets ,the list goes on and on i had £150 worth of stuff in my basket hopefully it will still be there, i doubt it though
i think boots is good though as when u add a item to your basket you normally get it unlike sainsburys when you put everything in and its all out of stock when you have finished browsing !!
