There is one in Ipswich this weekend, I live about 40 minutes away. Has anyone been to one before? Is it worth going? Meant to be up to 70% off, can't seem to find much on the internet to see if it's worthwhile or not.
I went to one near Leicester before Christmas, and was less than impressed tbh. I bought one item, and it turned out to be the same price in the website sale. Friends I went with used to go all the time, and scoop up real bargains but they reckon it's not worth bothering with now.
I went in the end, I thought it was pretty good, spent £125 and the label value of the stuff was about £280.
It was mobbed but I got there as it started and didn't have to wait for too long to get in, they were letting batches of people in at a time, although it was busy it wasn't terrible. There were quite a few Joules staff there helping with sizes.
It was all piled neatly on tables at first, within about 5 minutes it looked like a jumble sale! The pricing was a bit difficult to understand, at least it was for me! But I might be a bit thick!
I'd do it again but I think I'd go the first day as it opens, especially as it's the VIP day (I got an e-mail invite but they didn't ask for proof) and I got an extra 10% off.
