I have been given a bag of spring flowering bulbs (family member works in a retail outlet, bulbs didnt sell and were to be thrown out to make space for other seasonal plants). 

What should I do with them - store or plant them?

    plant them , they've got more chance of growing now than storing them for another season.

    Check that they're not soft or mouldy, any that are have probably had it. Plant the rest. I've found forgotten bulbs in March image  they've survived and come good the following year image

    Yes - plant any that aren't squidgy and hope for the best image
