Are they much higher? I suppose they will be doing all the work rather than going yourself and loading up wagons.i got the same email, i also noted that the prices are higher than their open day prices.

Subject: Thorne's Winter Sale
Our Winter Sale will start on Tuesday 29th December at 9.00am online only when
full details will be on our website www.thorne.co.uk
Usually, we don't start until early January but, this year, we are giving you
the opportunity to "beat" the VAT rise on January 1st. On the last three
days of 2009, we will have just a few staff here at Wragby to process internet
orders including taking the payment for sale items. As we will be officially
closed, we won't be answering the telephone although we will try to respond
to e-mails. The shop will also be closed until Wednesday 6th January.
We will start to despatch orders from 6th January.
Now to the prices! (but remember that these will increase from 1st January
Strange! I have recived the above email and on the PC it reads the same as above, but the same email read on my phone reads the following (I have sent it to my works email to copy past the following)
But on my phone if I view as HTML it reads corretly!.
Hope no one misses the sale?
I did not try and get Maisemore clearance items this year, but on my last two visits, Maisemore firsts have been worse than Thornes seconds.maisemore's clearance items are cheaper
I haven't ordered from Th***es online before, how easy is it to get your order through for the online sale? I have figured out what I need, but will not be able to get online bang on 9am.
I am guessing that there will be a lot of interest and therefore pressure on their servers, what was last year like for those that ordered?
