    Watched the news this morning and the Woolworths administrators had spread that there was 50% off everything (on top of previous reductions) e.g. if 25% off a further 50% off that.

    Got there with massive 50% off everything signs everywhere then grabbed some xbox games and other random sh1t inc. the latest Tiger Woods game. I had to queue for a f^*&king hour nearly and then got to the front of the queue.

    I got to the front and gave them the Tiger Woods game that was marked £24.99 and I was told that there was only 10% off it and they tried charging me £39.99 and told me it had actually gone up in the sale. WTF?!?!?

    Big load of cock!

    Loads of other ppl experienced the same thing!

    :(

    They were real buggers... from £24.99 10% reduction = £39.99 WTF?! I dont think the staff there can do maths.

    All cpu stuff was 10% off only and the staff were flaring up at the customers over it. There was a MASSIVE pile of cpu stuff and DVDs they were refusing to reduce!!!

    It got so bad they were refusing to check prices of things but everything decent was either sold or reduced by a small amount. No wonder that place went under it was full of sh1t stuff hahaha!

    There was even a guy in a paper suit (just got out of prison) wondering around and all kinds of psychos showing up!!!

    What an experience!

    :eek:
