Parents racing to Home Bargains to pick up Grinch Christmas merch after it 'sold out in minutes last year' | The Sun

PARENTS are racing to Home Bargains to nab newly-dropped Grinch merch as one shopper warned the collection “sold out in minutes last year”. 

The discount retailer has been introducing yuletide products into its aisles over the last month, with now less than 100 days to go until the big day.

But you don’t have to wait till December to get your Christmas on. 

Home Bargains’ Grinch offering includes party packs, biscuit decorating crisps and bright green hot water bottles as colder nights start to creep in. 

The merchandise is based on illustrations from Dr Suess’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas, rather than modern adaptations.

Dannie Ainsworth found Grinch advent calendars for just 99p in her local Home Bargains.

Alongside the advent calendars were 99p green candy canes and a £1.99 Grinch biscuit decorating kit.
