I would think Pondstretcher and Wilkinson sell cheap stuff at cheap prices as their normal range, Lidl probably sell 'loss leaders' or whatever you call them, selling often good stuff at a subsedised price, to get people into the shop to buy their other goods. I am writing this sitting at a Lidle desk made of solid pine (and judging by the wide anual rings its probably from managed fast-grown timber sources) bought for 25 including two drawers, a shelf and a pull-out thingy for the keyboard. Most chip board desks go for 2-4 times more.

I stand admonished

I think I was just trying to console myself with the fact that I probably won't make it to Lidl's this week

Always worth trying on your next visit. Occasionally things do last for a week or more. You just stand a better chance with the more popular stuff if you get there early. In fact, I thought the desks would be sold out by 10 am the first day, being such a good price, they still had a few the following week. But last week the wireless CCTV camera was gone by early afternoon the first day.

That's true, I do have to take my mother shopping on Friday anyway, so I'll just keep my fingers crossed that they have some left.
