Default Wiltsgrove dumping vcr spares!!!

Hi all,

I just had to order some bits for my various vcrs from Wiltsgrove and whilst doing so the lady I spoke to on the phone told me they are in the process of dumping their vcr spares stock as no call for vcr spares apparently.

Make sure you order all you need now before the parts are gone forever
Richard.

I'm in no way affiliated with wiltsgrove, I just don't want to see rare spares getting skipped.

Perhaps an opportunity for someone (or a group) to bulk-buy their remaining stock?

I was thinking that myself, but me being a skinflint I'd rather them give them to us then chuck them out. Hahaha.

It may be that they are an advanced stage of dumping stock. I just checked their website and the spares they listed which I was interested in were unavailable.
