CRIEFF residents are being invited to a bargain basement sale in Penny Lane next week.
Business owners at the Church Street arcade have got together to purchase clearance stock from the defunct Haldanes Supermarket, which went into liquidation in July. The store promptly closed its doors leaving behind a lot of goods still on the shelves.
Not wanting to see the items go to waste, the quick-thinking shopkeepers have snapped it up at a knockdown price.
“We didn’t want to see the stuff sitting there doing nothing,” one of the organisers told the Herald, “and thought it would be a good idea to offer it to the people of Crieff. We are going to be selling it off in the mall at bargain prices on a first-come, first-serve basis.
“There are a lot of good items such as Christmas stuff, including crackers, mincemeat, lights, decorations, wrapping paper and gift bags. There are also things like screen wash and de-icer for the winter.”
School children have already been benefiting from the sale as a small display of sweets and crisps at knockdown prices has already been on offer.
“We will definitely be up and running fully by Tuesday,” the spokesperson continued. “It’s going to be a mad crazy sale but when it’s finished it’s finished.”
