Q. I know that Bargain Booze sells big brands at competitive prices, but does it have the type of wine I prefer?
Here at Bargain Booze and Thorougoods we do aim to offer products at the most competitive prices all year round. But that doesn't necessarily mean we are selling cheap products; we just sell big brands at competitive prices! Most Bargain Booze and Thorougoods stores have a wide variety of good quality wines for sale so check out our Wine Offers to see if we have what you've been looking for.
Q. I am constantly hearing about 'binge drinking' on the news and I want to make sure that I'm not drinking to excess. Can you help?
The Government recommends that on average a woman shouldn't drink more than 2 – 3 units of alcohol per day and on average a man shouldn't drink more than 3 – 4 units per day. Bargain Booze supports the work of www.drinkaware.co.uk and we would strongly recommend that you visit the Drink Aware website for further information. Remember; most people in the UK enjoy alcohol as part of a normal lifestyle. Have a drink, have fun... but be safe and sensible!
Q. I am really impressed with the competitions Bargain Booze have been running lately. If I enter one competition, am I allowed to enter the others?
As long as you are over 18 you can enter all of our competitions, with the caveat being that only one person from each household can enter each competition. Visit our T&Cs for full details. Most of our competitions run for 6 weeks, so keep checking back as there are loads of fantastic prizes to be given away throughout the year.
Q. I'm planning a small party for around 10 friends and I'm really confused about what to buy, can you help?
Without knowing what you or your friends drink it is hard to recommend particular brands but in our experience cold beer, a few bottles of wine, one of two spirits and lots of mixers (as these always run out) should do the trick. Also, as Bargain Booze are currently running a number of beer offers, wine offers and spirits offers it won't break the bank to buy a bit of each. Don't forget the drivers and the under 18s either! Bargain Booze and Thorougoods sell a wide range of still and carbonated soft drinks, along with teas and coffees for those driving to the party. We would also suggest that you don't skimp on the nibbles. Why not try a selection of crisps, dips and snacks from the extensive range found in most stores.
The legal age you have to be in UK is 18. Additionally, Bargain Booze operates an 'under 25' policy, so if you are lucky enough to look under 25 you will be asked to provide valid identification such as a photographic driving licence, passport or a card with the PASS logo.
