Added another: ‘It’s all well and good to extend Ooshies but there are none at my local supermarket! It would be good if you could spread all the remaining stock around to different supermarkets.’
But others are a little more relaxed. ‘Woolworths always said it was until stocks last, this happens every promotion. Just be happy they’ve extended it for stores that so have Ooshies left.’
EARLIER: In a shock announcement, Woolworths has announced that they are EXTENDING their Lion King Ooshie promotion at stores around the country.
The offer was due to finish on August 13, with fans in a mad, final rush to get their hands on the coveted Ooshies and complete their collections.
But in a surprise twist, Woolworths announced this afternoon that Ooshie fever is here to stay.
Says a Woolworths spokesperson: ‘Due to a limited amount of remaining stock, Woolworths has extended the Lion King Ooshies program - while stocks last only.’
To help fans complete their collections, the supermarket is also holding another Swap Day.
Adds the spokesperson: ‘A second swap day will also take place this Saturday, 17 Aug from 10am-2pm across all of our stores nationally. We hope this gives customers another opportunity to complete their collection alongside other members of the community.’
