AIBU to be hacked off that virtually all of Mini Boden now has a 15 week wait.

It's only September and the winter catalogue's not even out! Johnnie's cocked up his stock levels this year!

Where in the country are you? They have a shop in London (near Hanger Lane) and in Surrey.

We went in at the weekend and managed to grab coats before they all ran out of stock. Also, you can use your codes in store.

Sorry - no help at all if you're not in the area but worth mentioning just in case.

Bet it's because of the launch in the US. Maybe they can't cope with the demand.

Hmm - do they take your £ at time of order or despatch?

interesting..will tell dh -he has this theory going (based on number of offers johnnie sends us) that they aren't doing so well...

Credit crunch? What credit crunch?

What a joke. Their stuff is way overpriced anyway. Take your money elsewhere.

I placed an order 2 weeks ago and was told there was a 3 week wait. I have just had an Email saying that it will now be December before I get my order but they have given me £5 off my next order.

You may be right, Jackie No. I do live in London, Sycamore, but right over the other side from Hanger Lane and I don't love Johnnie enough to go hiking over there, just to find that everything is out of stock there too. Guess its H&M this winter - least it's better for the bank balance smile

YANBU - what on earth is the point of producing a catalogue that you can't actually buy anything from

hana Thu 18-Sep-08 16:41:57

they only take the money once order has been dispatched

There is a heap of Mini-Boden on Ebay. Whilst you might not get exactly the colour or style you were looking for, it generally is in very good condition, is half the price and arrives quickly. Also, I personally think that Mini-Boden clothes look better for being somewhat well-worn.

Warning: Don't bid unless you have a sense of the catalogue price as sometimes the bidding is less than logical and the final bid price comes within a whisker of the catalogue price.
