Click & Collect With Matalan...

Last week I received an email from Matalan telling me they had recently launched a click and collect service where you can buy your shopping online and collect in store.

I was also asked if I would like to try the service out and let them know my thoughts.

 If you follow my blog you will know I regularly shop at Matalan.

It is one of the only shops around where my younger children, teenage sons and husband can all find something they like.

If I happen to slip a few items into the basket then so be it!

 We find the prices to be reasonable, garment quality excellent and they always have a wide selection of clothes available.
