Mothercare Sale 2016!

I always have a thing for baby stuff - those cutesy clothes, softest mitten, shoes for the tiny toes and even the muslin wraps! Whenever someone is pregnant among my circle of friends, I enjoy shopping for the gifts. And I check out the baby sections when shopping even if I don't have to buy anything.  Imagine how much I controlled myself not to buy when I learned that we were expecting our little sioplet!!!! Waited for the 6th month before buying anything, one the first day of our 6th month we immediately purchased some newborn clothes online and went to the mall the following day. LOL!

But we still waited for the boxing day sale and the Mothercare sale 2016! I was stalking their webpage for the online deals and learned there are better deals on the January 2016 sale. Last year, I already went to the Mothercare annual sale and I had no problem getting inside on the 4th or 5th day. I was monitoring the Facebook Page of Mothercare Singapore for the queue updates and the first day which is exclusive for the VIP holders was terrible, buyers were waiting for 3 hours to get in to the store (Harbourfront branch). I decided to go on the third day of the sale which is also the first day open to the public. Went there around 5pm and luckily, no more queue! Hubby arrived around 6:30pm and I already have few items on my shopping bag. It was a bit hot inside the store, maybe because of the crowd or maybe because I'm nearing my 7th month? :)

Initially, we wanted to buy Mothercare Roam, I even showed it to my parents when they were here for the holidays. But yesterday, I was informed it was pulled out and they were offering me the Mothercare Expedior. Then, I saw the Silver cross Wayfarer on sale! I always have a thing for Silver cross and I used to tell Mr. Panda that one day, we will purchase that pram system :)

And here are some of our baby loots! We tried to focus on newborn needs! Mr.Panda was scolding me when I did my holiday shopping and I ended up buying 6-9 months and 9-12 months outdoor clothing.

And that's our Mothercare loot! Yes, it's crowded (of course, it is!) and some of their staffs are not fully aware of some details. Maybe, they should brief their sales staff and cashier more. The guy who assisted us at the strollers and pram system section told us that the wayfarer is not parent facing, but I just saw it on you tube a couple of minutes ago that it can be done (yes, i googled on the spot for the reviews) and the cashier staffs were not aware of the credit cards they can accept. Good thing I messaged Mothercare Singapore via Facebook weeks ago and I showed the cashier staff of the response of their e-commerce team. They do accept Amex and UOB/DBS/POSB for 0% installment payments. I'm impressed with their Facebook page and E-commerce team on how prompt and detailed they replied to me.

Plus points also that you have to claim the bulky items you purchased at the ground floor of Harbourfront centre across cold storage. Mr. Panda and I were able to have dinner without lugging around the huge box of the wayfarer. However, the cashier forgot to gave us our claim stub and we have to go back to the store to get it. We also waited for around 15 minutes at the pick up area for the wayfarer, but they were very apologetic and even assisted us with a trolley to the car pick up point.

I guess this Mothercare January Sale will be our yearly thing :)
