    Tesco USED to get Target exclusives, but I've not seen any in it for a while. Pops don't count.

    Huh? Smyths have discounted Sky Lynx to £40, but he's already out of stock. Did anyone ever see him in stock for that price? Just another bizarre episode after HoF and Sports Direct. o_O

    It's not the first time smyths have done that, I think they do that when there's just a small handful left in stores and they want to clear the board. Not a general discount as such, online and general availability in store always seems to be long gone by that point.

    At least two people in NI saw it, and one purchased him. Saw that in the UKT thread

    Sports Direct don't give a shit. I wrote an email to them two years ago after one of their staff was insanely rude to my mum and they basically replied telling me to fuck off.

    I went from spending about £80 a month there to zero. Like a cockroach, their store has somehow continued to survive despite everything else closing.

    I'm sorry that they were rude to your mother; no excuse for that. But it doubtless goes with the Ashley exploitation culture, and factors such as this and this might be coming into play. I've never bought anything from them.
