Maplin store stock check

I am sure, in the past, you could see store stock availability of a product on its product detail page.

Or am I remembering wrong?

I am looking at a particular product and there is no sign of this information.

You put in your postcode and showed stock levels of all nearby stores. There was a disclaimer that stock levels were those at close of business the previous day so you should phone the store and reserve the item just on be on the safe side.

Thanks for confirming I'm not going mad.

Noticed they seem to be keen on you registering on the site so perhaps this feature is only available once you register and login.

I'll give my local store a call tomorrow instead.

few days back i had checked something in stock,but i am not registered on the site.ok let me have a look again

and i think the page take you to store location,but if you check the top middle then you can enter the product number and it will show you whether they have it in a particular store or not

Here are the Instructions for using the stock checker (scroll down a bit):

It tells you to use the "Check Stores Stock" button but I can't see this button:

Thanks addjon and nick but neither of your suggestions is working.

As detailed in the FAQ nick linked to, this is how it should work but the button is missing.

Perhaps they removed this feature recently.

And as if by magic, the Check Store Stock button has re-appeared against the item I was looking at.

Crazy.
