I whizzed to Wilko to check out their ‘sale’ before they go under & here’s whether the ‘bargains’ are really worth it | The Sun

A SAVVY shopper has shared his honest opinion on some of the cut-price buys he spotted at the Wilko sale – and here's whether they're really worth bothering with.

The video comes as Wilko announced a huge administration sale in some of its stores, offering discounts on thousands of products.

Although the prices may be tempting to some loyal fans, one shopper, Elliot William, didn't seem that impressed with the ''bargain'' buys.

Walking through the shop, Elliot, better know to his followers on TikTok as @costoflivingcrisistips, noted that there wasn't ''a lot to go off''.

''You get some stuff, like plates, bedding, things like that reduced.

''But overall, it's not good so I wouldn't bother,'' he advised in the clip.
