Let's get this straight. Nothing will ever sell out as fast as this Aldi chair from a few months ago which literally sold out in seconds.
But, this is definitely a close second.
There is nothing more cruel than being on a possible nationwide hose pipe ban and for Lidl to turn around and say: 'hey guys, want to buy a insanely cheap swimming pool?'
Their 'Bestway Steel Pro Swimming Pool with Filter Pump' was up for grabs from 8am on Thursday morning and people were literally queuing from the crack of dawn to get their hands on it.
However, lots of people were disappointed to find out that there was only a few pools in store, meaning that they could be near the top of the queue and still not get their hands on one.
The €119 pool has sold out around the country and there is no confirmed plans to restock the pool, which is a shame.

Unfortunately due to unprecedented demand the above item has sold out much quicker than we could have anticipated. Stock for this promotion was bought and the sales date planned nearly a year in advance. (1/2)

"Whilst we apologise to customers who have been disappointed, we would ask customers to be respectful towards our employees who have no control over availability."
If you did manage to get your hands on the pool, you'll be the king/queen of summertime.
