  2. Check stock – you can check to make sure your local store has what you want in stock before you leave home, and then reserve the item ready to collect. You can
    • Ring & Reserve by calling 0870 600 10 10.
    • Check on line at
    • By mobile phone, using our ‘text and take home’ service Text 61201. (Use your mobile to text the catalogue number and store name or number with a space in between them to the above number and we’ll reply straight back to tell you if it’s in stock, with an option to reserve it. If we don’t have it, we can text you when we do.
    Once in store you can check stock at any catalogue point in store by using our stock checkers. If you require assistance in using the stock checker, please ask any member of staff.
