B&Q stores in Llandudno, Bangor, Wrexham and Rhyl are safe - for now]

DIY giant B&Q has revealed that the future of four of its North Wales stores are safe - for now.
Parent company Kingfisher, which also owns Screwfix, announced in March it was to cut as many as 60 stores in the UK.

This put the future of stores in Bangor, Llandudno, Rhyl, Queensferry and Wrexham in doubt.
In April they confirmed that the store in Queensferry would close but remained tight lipped on the future of the other outlets, which employ around 200 staff.

Now they say the stores are not planned for closure in this financial year.
A B&Q spokeswoman said: “Staff at the Rhyl, Llandudno, Bangor and Wrexham stores have been told that their store is not a store planned for closure this financial year.”

There was no further information beyond those dates and B&Q said in March that the cuts will take place over two years.
The closure of the Queensferry store on Deeside Retail Park will affect around 40 workers.
It will take place next year and B&Q have said they will try to re-deploy as many staff as possible.

Last year, rival DIY chain Homebase said it would close a quarter of its stores - about 80 outlets - in the period up to early 2018.
This has included the Holyhead store and the shop at Llandudno is also due to close with plans to replace it with a B&M store.
Kingfisher said it expects to offset the B&Q jobs impact by opening a similar number of shops at sister business Screwfix and through redeployment.

ASDA Price Guarantee

I'm sure almost everyone knows about the ASDA scheme, whereby if you enter the 20 digit code on your receipt into an online Asda price checking site you stand to get a tiny discount voucher for your next Asda shop.

ASDA changed the scheme a few months back, and for a while we were getting nothing.  Apparently, our shopping at ASDA was 'always' at least 10% cheaper than the other big supermarkets. What made this odd, however, was that almost every week we'd been getting a voucher, the average price on which was £1.50. We always assumed that it was simply a way of ASDA giving a 5 - 10% discount, which costs them very little. Following the change on the web site, however, we got nowt for several weeks, to the point where we weren't bothering any more.

Abruptly, last week it proclaimed "That's unusual! your shopping wasn't 10% cheaper!" and spat out a voucher in the region of our previous average value.  Now, we never throw receipts away before 6 years has elapsed (Sale of Goods Act, etc) so I put though three more and sure enough a total discount of almost £5.00 appeared. Not a lot, I know, but ASDA is pretty good value, anyway, so every little...

Don't know if it's been mentioned already on here, but the Carphone Warehouse shop on the Retail Park (by Costa) has closed down and moved into Currys/PC World.
