Find the Best Bargains in a Sainsbury’s TU store and section
Usually, TU clothing sections within Sainsbury’s stores are not exactly the largest, although some of the clothing sections in large superstores can be bigger than high street retail stores, so it can pay to plan ahead.
- Visit the store at least the day before the sales start
- Decide on which Sainsbury’s TU store you want to visit on the day
- Get there 30mins early and 30mins before they close
- Plan your route in advance
Visit the store at least the day before the sales start
With anything you want to do well, you should plan ahead.
This means visiting the store and taking a look at the layout and the sections. If you have more than one Sainsbury’s with TU clothing sections nearby you may find it to your advantage to check both.
Decide which Sainsbury’s TU store you want to visit on the day
If you have multiple Sainsbury’s stores with TU clothing ranges nearby it may be worth going to visit them in advance.
Check stock levels and sizes, especially of the types of clothes you want to buy.
The larger stores generally have more stock, but they can also be busier meaning size ranges are low.
Get there 30mins early and 30mins before they close
We British believe it’s fair to queue, but that doesn’t mean we enjoy it.
When seeking out those 25% sale bargains you need to go all in. Get there early before the doors open and the sales start. Be ahead of that queue and your competition.
Queue levels are different per store location, but 30mins should be enough to get ahead of the main crowds.
If the sale lasts across a number of days, you can find that towards the end of the day the shelves are restocked for the morning trade. This can be a great time to grab some bargains that were waiting in the wings for the following day.
This doesn’t happen in all Sainsbury’s TU stores, but there are some that do – particularly the larger superstores.
Plan your route in advance
Each TU department within Sainsbury’s store has a different layout, and this can also change from time to time.
If the crowds on the day are all going to be going after the sale 25% ticket items, you may need to plot a route that takes you from item to item down your wish list in the right priority order.
Get to your most wanted items first and leave the nice to haves until last.
Find the best Sainsbury’s TU 25% off bargains in the Online Sales
Shopping online is great. Avoid the queues and browse at your leisure.
If you are planning to shop online during the sale, here are some tips to get you started:
- Add the items you want into your shopping basket before the sale starts
- Bookmark pages of items you want to check in the sales
- Write down each of the products you want, including the Product Code (shown against each product on the Sainsbury’s TU Clothing website)
- Wake early, get showered, refreshed and with coffee – be ready and be alert!
It’s really key here to plan ahead. Your plan should include all those clothing items you want to check to see are included in the 25% TU sale or not.
Each Sainsbury’s TU clothing item has a Product Code. Make a note of this – hint: it’s usually 9 digits long.
In the panic of searching, you may not find the item you found the night before. A product code search is unique and will take you to the same product again fast.
Are all clothing items in the Sainsbury’s TU sales at 25% off?
The majority of sale items in the TU sale are offered at 25% of the standard price, so yes clothing items at Sainsbury’s TU are really 25% off!
This has become much clearer to see over the past few years as it became a legal requirement for businesses to clearly display how long the product was at the original price for.
This is because retailers, to entice bargain hunters to their door, would temporarily increase prices for a day or so, and then lower them to close to the original price saying the item was now ‘in a sale’.
Although this was not a practice followed by Sainsbury’s or other larger supermarket clothing stores, it became so widespread the commission for fair trade stepped in and changed legislation.
