If you’ve been online over the last week you will have seen the backlash Zoella faced over charging her fans £50 for her 12 days of Christmas advent calendar which was for sale in Boots.
The advent calendar originally sold for £50 but Boots have confirmed from Thursday they will reduce it to £25.
The calendar currently has an overall rating on Boots’ website on one and a half stars. Multiple angry parents took to the website to vent their anger after they realised the gifts inside where worth approximately £20.
Today a spokesperson for Boots said;
“We are sorry to hear that the price of the Zoella 12 Days of Christmas Advent Calendar has disappointed a number of customers.
“We always listen to feedback. We will be offering the product at half price during our Christmas promotion, where the calendar will be on sale for £25 from Thursday November 16.
“The Zoella Lifestyle advent calendar is full of 12 exclusive treats which are all clearly listed on boots.com and cannot be purchased separately.”
Some fans still ain’t happy that Boots ain’t discounting the product till Thursday. This also doesn’t help the hundreds of disappointed customers who have already paid £50.
