Mothers Direct

Post by Penguin » Sun Mar 15, 2015 8:51 pm

I'm really quite sad about the closure. I'm sure that those who made the decision did so in the best interests of the Association and are probably more bummed than me and I'm not questioning the decision at all, but it really is a bummer.

From a very selfish POV I hope my pump issue gets sorted quickly :roll: but I will miss my Southside trips to go and get stuff (catch up with snowie often while I was there too.)

Sale starts tomorrow instore and online in case you want anything. Member discount does not apply.

End of an era as they say.

Did you go to the 'other' side of the river to go to MD?

:shock:

Sorry, my bad.

I'll have to go over one day this week so if you want anything Lu (or anyone else) I can get it for you and post.

:( Very sad. It was always a treck for me to go but i loved meeting the women there. I got excellent fitting bras there too. And of course a whole host of wonderful things. But mostly I'll miss the chats

The way I read it, you could also phone orders in (looking at the fine print at the bottom of the email).

I think they have added a lot to the 'Clearance' section on the webpage. When I look up the non clearance sections on the website the member discount still applies there.

It's a good basic LBD, so always acceptable! You could glam it up with the right accessories.

Can't go wrong with basic black. Got a scarf/shawl? You don't have to drip with jewellery ;-)

I just bought 3 bras. Pretty much anything on sale in a 10E was purchased by me.

I have been in maternity bras for over 6 years now so I am indulging.
