The Baby Factory discount days are one of the most popular (and handiest!) benefits you can enjoy as an active Parents Centre member. In February you get the awesome opportunity to take advantage of a very generous 20% off absolutely everything from The Baby Factory (some conditions and exclusions apply). All you have to do is show your Parents Centre membership card in store on the designated discount days, or use the online code provided in the advertising. Find the ads for the upcoming discount days on the inside front cover and outside back cover of this magazine. We also remind you by email and on Facebook. The Baby Factory is New Zealand’s leading Babywear and Nursery Furniture specialist, serving New Zealand for more than 25 years with 25 stores nationwide and an online shopping service to match. Their trained staff are there to help you with advice on what you’ll need as a first- time parent. Their clothing range includes sizes from prem to size 7, and they also stock a large range of toys, Manchester and nursery furniture, from local and overseas manufacturers.
