    Hello folks,

    Where would I be able to buy strong clingfilm to post something large and awkwardly shaped? I need to wrap it around the whole thing.

    Unfortunately I don't have time to buy some off of the internet so I'll have to go in to one of those horrible shops. Where would you recommend?

    Thanks :)

    Staples is probably your best bet.

    Look up packaging materials on Yell.com for your local area?

    Well then, Staples has Caterwrap designed for food for £10 which seems a bit steep. Storage World near me has some for a fiver, not sure what its like though, sending the missus on a mission to get some hehe. She won't have a clue its for her.

    Are you sorted with this? I actually work at a manufacturer of this stuff...can you not wait till tomorrow for an FOC 'sample'?

    And make sure she gets pallet wrap, stretch film, and not the food grade stuff!.
