I visited my local store last Sunday, wanted some 32/0.2 wire in Black and Yellow.....They had the Yellow but no Black, so I decided not to bother even though it was price reduced...but came away with two 250 g reels of 26swg en cu wire, with 50% off....bargain!...
I guess they are attempting to recover as much cash as they can before closing up for good....

It seems Maplin lives again, I just received an email with my introductory discount code for their new online store.

Thanks for that, my old account didn't carry over, so had to re-register.

Same email here - sadly there's nothing in their store that would interest me now.

I have had a bit of a browse now and I would agree Peter, they seem to be convinced of a need for gadgety type stuff at the expense of the the component side of the business.

Just catering to the current demographic and it's happening in all things in my experience. Wrinklies don't figure any more. I'm sure my Dad would have said the same thing in his day ... and Gran'dad.

There wasn’t much of interest for me for a few years before they went under. Useful if you needed a component same day. It has not been difficult to live without the local store.

The demand for components are huge and we will definitely be sourcing them very soon.
