Shoppers scramble to get their hands on MEGA cheap children's fancy dress costumes from Sainsbury's for World Book Day | The Sun


SHOPPERS are scrambling to get their hands on cut-price children's fancy dress costumes from Sainsbury's.

World Book Day is less than a month away – March 2 – and luckily for many parents, the popular supermarket has reduced many of their fancy dress costumes.

As a result, many shoppers are eager to get their hands on the supermarket’s bargain buys, in time for the big day.

One savvy shopper, a mum named Catherine O'leary, took to Facebook to show off her Sainsbury’s epic buys that she picked up for her young daughter.

She posted pictures of the mega cheap costumes to bargain hunting group, Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK group, which has a whopping 2.2million members.

Whilst shopping in Sainsbury’s in Basingstoke, Catherine was left open-mouthed when she spotted the reduced dresses.

She explained that she was using the scan as you shop tool for her shopping and was left stunned she spotted the half price costumes.

But she claimed that when she scanned the dresses, they were reduced even more.

The mother explained that the dresses scanned at just £1 each – yes, you heard that correctly.

She explained: “Both dresses marked at half price. One from £16 and one from £14.

“Not sure if these are in all stores but worth grabbing a scanner and having a look if you're passing.”

Catherine shared pictures of her bargain buys – a Peppa Pig pink and gold dress that came with a headband and a Toy Story Bo Peep dress – perfect for little ones looking for fancy dress costumes. 

At the time of writing, Catherine had shared her post just two hours ago, but it had quickly caught the attention of many bargain hunters.

One of Catherine’s friends said: “Amazing. I can't wait to see little legs wearing these.”
