    Hi Brian,
    Will collectors strips of all 4 ‘products’ be available on friday 28th, or will the ‘Pigs Post & Go’ sets disappear?
    Also do you know which strips will be available ‘self service’ ?

    As far as self service is concerned (Series A) I would not expect these to be available on Fri/Sat – only series B over the counter.

    All strip versions will be available self-service
