    Went into my local Screwfix branch this morning and spotted a reel of 5 core heat flex on the "clearance, manager's special" stand.
    Not knowing how much of a manager's special it was I typed the item number into the search bar on Screwfix web page to find that the price of the managers special clearance item was exactly the same as the online retail price?
    I questioned the price and selling techniques with a member of staff to no avail to the point of the conversation being painful.

    Is it right to pretend something is discounted when it's not?
    Beware when looking at the cheap section, it might just be slow moving stock at its normal price.

    The only time I've seen anything remotely cheap was a pack of coaxial things with half missing... It wasn't even half price.
