Shoppers claim Wilko inflated the price of artificial Christmas trees BEFORE starting its half-price sale
The new prices range from £5, down from £10, for a 3ft tree in silver or gold to £55, down from £110, for a weeping willow festive tree.
Bargain hunters on deal-sharing website hotukdeals spotted the offer, but some also slammed Wilko for allegedly inflating the prices before the sale started.
Altarf commented: "Anyone who thinks these are half price is a mug."
Another user called pcs7038 said: "Presumably these were on sale at an inflated price through October (when hardly anyone buys a tree) so that they can claim they're half price now when most trees are bought.
"Dishonest pricing by the retailer."
Similar opinions were expressed by phillyboy who said: "It's so good that so many people can now see through the tricks retailers use to con you into believing you're getting a deal."
