Overnight queues formed outside the Dr Martens shop in Norwich last night as bargain hunters waited for a pair of cut price boots.
Top offers in the store on Castle Street included a pair of signature shoes for £3 – when they normally sell for £100.
Some eager shoppers had been waiting outside since 8pm last night in readiness for the 9am opening, with many even pitching a tent in readiness.
Guy Beaven, 19, from Norwich was in-line since 3am. He said: “I think I’m lucky to get a pair as I was able to join some mates who started queuing before me. But they’re definitely worth it.”
And Damon Cocker, 23, a barman at the Belgium Monk in Norwich, said he had been queuing since about 1.30am.
