Got a Maplins credit note or gift card?

Use it this week. The electrical gadget and component retailer is reported to be seeking a buyer before the end of the week to avoid administration.

Maplins has an outlet at Telford Centre, one of a 200 UK wide network of stores employing over 2000 people.

Are we seeing the end of big retail sheds?

    Maplin is the kind of place you go to and want one of everything but are so expensive you generally come away with nothing. They’re the architect of their own demise thinking they can continue to charge premium prices for things that can be bought for a fraction of the price online.

    Years ago though they were such good value….It seems to me that they moved away from what they did best (supply lots of small accessories and electrical components) and try to become more of an all round retailer….

    Who wants to pay £30 for a gold plated HDMI when you can get one for £5, Maplins is a complete rip off. I’ve been in there and walked out thinking I’ll just wait 2 or 3 days for delivery and a fraction of the price by ordering on the Internet. Its a shame brick and mortar stores are disappearing but if they don’t at least TRY to compete then this is their fate.
