Maplin reportedly has less than 48 hours to ward off administration

Maplin has over 200 stores across the UK.



Read more about Maplin's financial struggles.

Thanks to Tolemac for the info.

Hardly surprising given their prices. £100 for a £50 PSU. Yeah, bargain. I've never, ever ordered anything from them I found them far too expensive.

Yep with you on that. Still charging full price on Ryzen CPUs right now. Think they got the memo about Pinnacle Ridge on the horizon and threw it in the bin

They were the best "go to" place for audio bits n bobs. Could go there and purchase all the cabling I needed to create me own surround system, or replacement audio jacks/aux cables etc.

That was about all they were good for really. Everything else was poor quality or over priced.

Hey, I've had some right bargains from Maplin - full akasa sound dampening kit for pc case - a fiver - random brand pcie sata card - a tenner - stuff like that. (but the bargains are few and far between and normally on old stock that they just want rid of).
