Lidl issue statement after swimming pools sell out (meaning lots of angry customers)
Aaaaand, they're gone.
It's safe to say everyone went a little wild when Lidl announced it was selling swimming pools.
With the weather playing an absolute blinder, everyone and their mother thought they were in Spain and what else is there to do when the weather is warm other than get a pool? Nothing. Absolutely nothing.
And so, half of Ireland arrived to buy a swimming pool when they went on sale cross Lidl stores nationwide this morning.
However, the demand was so high that they sold out of the swimming pools soon after the stores opened, which obviously resulted in a lot a happy - and very unhappy - people.
So much so, Lidl Ireland had to release a statement.
Taking to Twitter, the store said: "*** Bestway Steel Pro Swimming Pool with Filter Pump sold out! *** 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.
"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."

So, please don't give out to staff, people. It's not their fault.
