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
