    Default Halfrauds again :-)

    Went to get a pair of bulbs today and saw BOGOF on ultra bright bulbs or whatever they're called
    Went to pay and no BOGOF...I whinged and took her to the stand...she simply said " That offer's finished" and removed the BOGOF signs
    I was NOT impressed and walked out...bought nowt and went elsewhere
    What sort of chimps do they employ ???

    Can't see personally how they can still be in business in today's economic climate. Most items they stock are probably cheaper elsewhere. Jessops went to the wall recently and I thought at the time 'hope not, but it wouldn't surprise me if Halfords were the next big name to do so'.

    I'm really not impressed with Halfrauds, I avoid them if I can possibly avoid it...

    Been looking for a new headunit recently and amazed at how few they seem to stock... They had about 3 double DIN units in store, all of which cost way more than online...

    Used to use them for service parts, but don't even bother looking any more... Straight to Euro Car Parts every time...

    Bought some screen wash from my local Halfrauds last week.

    Laughed when I saw the "Fitting from 99p" on the price ticket.

    I have had some cracking deals from halfords, by reserving online and paying in store. I have already predicted they can not go on like this too. Many of their deals are as cheap as buying online, if not cheaper.

    Phantom BOGOFs have happened to me dozens of times in Tesco, Asda, Sainsburys, etc, the difference being that they usually honour it if you complain, because the shelf price was misleading. Conversely, several times I've seen items advertised as BOGOF on MySupermarket.co.uk and yet when yo go to the store (Asda, Waitrose) there's no sign of the offer on the shelf, yet when you go to pay to see what happens, the offer is in place.

    When they have deals they often are worth looking into. But otherwise, I don't really use them any more. I guess you're paying for their higher overheads and the convenience. Trouble is the competition is a fair bit cheaper.
