I was reading this thread click here and I recall last month looking at one of maplins recent brochures where there were some nifty gps units very cheap. I decided to look them up before replying , but when I try maplins.co.uk or maplins.com all I end up with is some page advertising sword canes! (surely cant be legal in this country, concealed weapons and all that etc).

A search for maplins just lead back to the canes. Anybody know whats happened to the website?

H-J - if you live anywhere near Hertfordshire, there's a Maplin store in Stevenage.

Unfortunately this particular outlet is no longer in operation - more's the pity.

instead of spending (I've just realised!) nearly an hour browsing maplins online catalog. A lot of cool looking stuff, but not sure about the prices tho'. I like this, and if I saw it in front of me I would be sorely tempted i.e. impulse purchase. click here


BTW, I think my nearest store would be Manchester
