If you just work in a store there Chris, you can post deals for them.

Sorry Guys Been out

Work in Woolworths in Ledbury
and it's Christian not Chrisine

Chris

cheers will make sure if any good offes come up will let people know

oh that would be great. another insider. keep it up.

Please don't take this as a person attack Chris but I'm not so certain this is fair - as a store manager do you not stand to make bonuses/performance related pay attached to sales etc?

You've posted on ]other threads about deals which might be happening in the future etc, which will probably put people off purchasing elsewhere to at least wait and see what woolworths offers, undoubtedly increasing their traffic.

You've been very honest about your position which is to be commended, and when a good offer is actually available (and can be revealed) then they should be listed, but I don't really think posting speculative forthcoming offers is really fair.

Agreed when you put it like that. I work in retail myself and promotions/offers can be pulled at the last minute.

A lot are pulled and we've seen that here on HUKD, but nothing to lose from being ready I suppose...!!

I don't think he'd get a promotion from online sales though, only sales in his store... so he'd have nothing to gain directly from giving us some of Woolies' deals early.

Clearly though, I would like to know that its possible something will be coming up in a matter of days and I would be prepared to wait if that were the case. His information is valid at that moment as far as he's aware and thats all we do on this site - provide information to the best of our knowledge.
If you then choose to go elsewhere whats wrong with that? We all want to save money! :thumbsup:

Hi Guys
I can see what people are saying and understand where they are coming from.
Thats why I have never posted any deal on the site, only added to threads that have been on here that might benfit from know what Woolys will be offering, eg the 360 + halo offer which i told people on a thread on Sunday or Monday because they were after a 360 and halo etc...

I don't get any bonus for web sales etc...
and have not given any details of what store I work in. (don't mind saying but only if asked)

I know some great deals coming up over the xmas period also whats in the new woolys book etc...
But as one person stated that some promo's are pulled before happening, so I will not mention these.

I happy to try and help people with problem if I can and give some important heads up like if you want a 360 make sure you ask for a v2 verson with hdmi on the box and not the normal premium etc.. (due to mixed stock in stores with the old display boxes being used ...etc... etc...

any question plese ask

chris

I only mentioned it Chris because it's happened at the store I work in several times I'm sure you know what irate customers are like!!

Thats fine mate
It happens here and there in any business.
This mainly happens due to low stock or items going out of stock.
Thats why some deals need to be posted before they come live.
yeah some deals last weeks, but seen some last only 15 mins before they have all gone.
One example is something could not post due to being at work is like the garmin sat nav unit woolys was selling for £80. lasted around 1 hour or 2.
