Home Bargains shopper praised for ‘genius’ use of drinks trolley

Home Bargains shoppers have been desperate to get hold of its drinks trolley since the retailer first teased the item back in December.

The retailer’s £20 trolley, which is similar to a £1,370 designer version, went on sale last month and is now out of stock online, though shoppers may still pick one up in some stores.

The gold two-tier trolley features two round shelves and has been likened to a designer version sold by Sweetpea and Willow for a much heftier price tag.

Similar cut-price drinks trolleys have previously sold out quickly at Primark and B&M.

Sharing a picture on the Home Bargains Appreciation Society Facebook group, Julie Bee said: “Used my drinks trolley as a candle station.”
