Research day for Squeak

Squeakaholic February 26, 2009 0

I thought for today’s blog I’d share with you a typical day doing research for Squeak and grabbing myself a good bargain.

Last Saturday started off to Auburn with a trip to OFIS. For those of you that don’t know OFIS, it’s a store for stationery and office products – similar to Officeworks. I saw an advertisement which had OFIS closing down soon and offering great deals so I decided to check it out.

They had deals such as 8GB flash drives for $38, Marbig stationary – 20% off, 3M products – 30% off, Willow storage containers – 40% off plus ink cartridges, furniture, computers and printers at discounted prices. I got myself a flash drive, ink cartridge, folders and stationery.

Further along Parramatta Road I stopped off at Victoria’s Basement. While Victoria’s Basement wasn’t having a particular sale, this outlet store has regular discounts available up to 70% off. Well known brands such as Scanpan, Tefal, Jamie Oliver, Circulon, Villeroy and Boch, Wedgwood, Benzer, Royal Doulton, Circleware, Riedel, Pyrex etc. I got some great deals including several pans, a pizza stone, wine glasses and pepper grinder.

Across the road, there was the Nike factory outlet which had 30-40% off the retail price. In addition, I was lucky enough to be there when they had a surprising additional 30% off! I got t-shirts for $10, 3 pairs of socks for $10 and shorts for $10! Bargain!

There are plenty of outlets on Parramatta Road so if you are keen to check out something then head towards Parramatta.

Happy shopping
