Travis Perkins?


I went to buy a saw in Travis Perkins (it was near, I needed it quickly).
When I went to pay, I must have reeled backwards at the price, not with
a view of bargining but just with genuine surprise. Anyway, seeing my
reaction, the price instantly got halved.

OTOH, Jewsons wanted 3 for a bag of sand which cost 99p at Wickes.
Again, I was there and needed it. There was no bartering to be had.
I did buy it, but I've never bought anything from them since.
