Does anyone have any experience of Boden clearance sales? There is one local to me tomorrow and I’m wondering what to expect. – is it a real bun fight? Do I need to get there extra early and queue?

Get there at least an hour ealry to queue and wear sharp blades attached to your elbows and do not take a buggy or any small children - they cry when the buns hit them!

yes bunfight
yes expect huge queues to get in and huge queues to pay
definite no to taking kids with you if you value their safety
give it a miss if you value your sanity

consider migrating your custom to Joules

I went to the Ipswich sale and tbh was a waste of any sale it was scouring the bins. not worth it imo

Surprised they have anything to clear based on the amount of autum / winter stock that is already sold out.

what are the prices like? Are items heavily reduced or just a couple of quid off. Trying to work out if its worth the effort!!

today was the boden clearence sale and it was a real spectacle...i found it incredibly embarrassing. babies being left in buggies...them tipping over screaming children inside. no mirrors people spread around on the floor ripping open packaging...people... its not a food crisis its a few quid knocked off some clothes!!!!

the initial queue was huge but moved quite quickly and the3 queue to pay was huge but quite quick...i doubt there will be anything left for tomorrow!

I was there too mamaspanx it was hell on earth! Took my DD which was indeed a huge mistake. Didn't stay long though to be fair. And I couldn't even get to most of the stuff as the crowds of women were blocking my way! Never again!

its a go alone type thing...get your head down and stuck was a bit cofusing because the boys and girls stuff was mixed up, i got a few nice things for ds1 that ds2 will inherit and an empire top for me cause i'm pregnant!! but the knitwear was still £30 so thats not much of a bargain really..boys trousers were £9 all styles

Yes everyone thinks it must be a bargain and you can get carried away with the excitement of just finding the right size! I just got one top for DD but its a summer one really. Nothing for me there was nothting at all left in my size.

Hi, are there any more Boden clearance sales this year? Does anyone have any info?

unfitmother Sun 28-Sep-08 15:40:33

I went to one once, got there half an hour early, by mistake, and joined a small queue which got a lot bigger!
I was very pleased with getting last seasons ski jacket for DD, originally £60, for £15.
Get there early if you want to get anything.
