Maplin: Really Gone this time



In March 2018 I wrote about the demise of Maplin,  but like a Supertanker trying to turn,  the closure takes time.

And so every week or so I've tried to visit Maplin stores and buy items at their newly reduced closure prices.

But  I kid you not, even in their closure sales their prices had remained un-competitive to the point that I still went elsewhere.

Yep, I know!!



And then 2 days ago I went to the store in Stratford.  It is finally closed.

I am a little sad, but this closure will finally save me a lot of time : windows shopping -> looking -> not buying anything
