Jumbo sold our reserved BBQ

After looking around for a while we finaly fell in love with a fantastic BBQ, it is very big, and as a gas burner on the side where you can also put a pan on and cook, your veg on it. So after talking to my husbands dad last night, asking him if he could help us put it together, and when he had time e.t.c. My husband rang the Jumbo, and asked if they had them in stock, and could we reserve 1, and come and pick it up, they said yes they had them in stock, and took all my husbands details down.

Then not long ago i got a phone call from the Jumbo telling me they had sold all of the BBQ`S and they would not be getting anymore in stock WTF. I asked if there was in any other Jumbo shop, and she said no sold out everywhere

I am so pissin mad i can`t believe they have done this I WANT THAT BBQ.

Sorry to hear that. Coop Bau & Hobby have a sale on BBQs too (at least here in ZH) maybe they still have the model.

Why don't you go and have a look in Germany- you live pretty close and they usually have a great grill-o-rama section (including gas operated ones).
