  1. There is no significant saving.
    I waited over 5 hours to get in on Saturday to find out that you only save 20-40 percent. All the tv's were, of course gone becuase they only put out 20 each day. the TVs are not a good deal because they are $800 TVs besign sold for $500.
    There were electric kettles that you can buy for $12-16 for $10 and dinky table lamps for $8 that can be bought at IKEA for same or less!
    Anyway, like I said, nothing worth waiting for 5 hours just to save 10-30%. Very dispointed. I also know people who work there and they are also pissed of at the prices and the way it is being handled and they just cannot wait to return to their regular jobs.

  2. I was there on saturday, it was a complete waste of time.

  3. the best sale I ever went to, NOT!
