Help me flist! [Jul. 14th, 2009|03:38 pm]
Listen in, listen Ian!
Where can I buy a tent cheap over the next couple of days, that isn't Argos which seems to be out of stock of all cheap tents. Cheap <= £20.

*lol* think I can guess why.

I'm going to have to do this too, as my sis let me down. I'm relying on Millets having some

Dude, I got away with a cheapo tent in the rain last year. It'll be fine...

Still, I can go to Upper Street on the way home, so that's a bit of a plan...

You can get them for a fiver in Asda. Tesco do decent ones for fifteen quid, they have loads in the Purley Cross branch.

They have the in the gigantic Tesco at Borehamwood, but that also may be too far to go.

Try Halfords? They normally have good cheap tents (although I don't know if they'll have anything for less than £20)

Halfords? This is the problem with a)London and b)not having a car. Where the devil is there a Halfords?

Well, I went to the one on the Edgware Road, just north of Staples Corner. But it's pretty inaccessible without a car, so that's not all that helpful!

*bears this in mind for emergencies*

I went to Angel after work, and Black's was closed by then. Tut.

Stupid question, but I take it even Argos's home delivery is out of stock? Or just not quick enough?

Both - I doubt they'd be quick enough, I need it by Thursday. But yeah, they're out of stock too.

Ooh, it is isn't it, good plan. I can get to Canary Wharf at lunchtime too, so that's a possibility.
