A shopper has taken to Facebook to claim that her local Woolworths has run out of Lion King Ooshies - sparking panic amongst Australia’s thousands of Ooshie collectors.
Shopper Lindy says she made the discovery at her local Woolies in WA yesterday, revealing that staff couldn’t tell her when they’d be getting more Ooshie stock in.
Posting on Facebook’s Coles Little Shop 2 & Woolworths Lion King Plus Others Swap Group, Lindy writes: ‘I’ve just been to Woolworths at Kingsway in WA and they’re out of the Ooshies and don’t when they’ll be getting anymore in. Not happy Jan! Put my shopping back.’
Another shopper also commented that her local store also had no stock, writing: ‘My small WW has also ran out, they’re supposed to be putting NA on docket and you can taken it back when stock comes in. It does say while stocks last so WW has covered themselves.’
However in good news for collectors, New Idea Food has contacted Woolworths and they’ve assured us that there’s still PLENTY of stock in stores - including the Kingsway, WA, store in question. The spokesperson went on to tell New Idea Food that stores are receiving Ooshie stock every day, and there’s no concern at this stage of stores running out.
Phew! With many fans still working on their collections, this is a welcome announcement - especially given that the Ooshie promotion is running for another 15 days until August 14. Says one fan: ‘I still am only halfway through my collection for my daughter! I only have two weeks to get the rest!’
Woolworths claim they still have plenty of stock in stores!
