“I went to maplin in Stockport for a solar panel,...”

Written on: 28/12/2008

Good Points
None from this store for me

Bad Points
A deliberate attempt to deceive the customer

General Comments
I went to maplin in Stockport for a solar panel, yesterday 26/12/2008, I saw a 60what solar kit reduced from £299 to £229 a saving of £70 I thought, well keeping that in mind I looked for similar products in the instore maplin catalogue only to find the identical same product at a listed price of £199. I asked the manager if this was a mistake and could I have the £70 saving of the catalogue price because there was clearly an error in the sale price. The manager said well the price is correct and the catalogue prices is only valid for the first day of publication.

My conclusion to this can only be that MAPLIN inflate prices to offer reductions in an false sale as a standard practice and I advise you all to shop elsewhere.
