Set 1589 Town Square 1978 - polybags?

Hi, I have a question about the 1978 Weetabix Promotional release of set 1589 Town Square. Did this set originally have the blocks bagged in polybags? I have contacted Lego directly and they don't seem to know - they said late 70's sets began to be released with the parts bagged, but they weren't sure about this particular set. Did anyone have one, and if so do you remember if the parts were bagged when you got it? Thanks

    Sorry, never had that set (I did have 10 of the Yellow Castle sets, and they were all polybagged).

    Just outer packaging is all I can help with... the 1589 came in a shipping box....

    I think most of the weetabix sets came in shipping boxes, as they were mail in offers where you collected some tokens then paid about 75% of the price for a set. Then they posted it to you.

    Not really sure. I don't own this set, nor do I have plans to own it.  If I had to guess I would say it did has most of the sets of this time period that I'm familiar with came in bags.

    I wouldn't think TLG would know much about this set.  It was made and sold by British Lego of Wrexham.  My understanding was Wrexham was basically independent until 1993 when it formally became a subsidiary of TLG.
