Get the most out of the sale

Here are a few top tips on how to get the most out of the sale:

  • Arrive in plenty of time as there is usually a queue.
  • NCT members are allowed earlier entry so consider joining the NCT ahead of the sale.
  • The sales are often very busy, and pushchairs are allowed, but you might find it easier to shop with your baby in a sling
  • Think about how you are going to get your shopping home – please consider bringing a helper if you plan to buy any large or heavy items.
