    I shop in there... I usually buy shampoo, conditioner and hair products
    Mostly buy pantene and fructis garnier.. and I have occasionally bought charles worthington hair products from there.

    My mum has bought silicon mats from there.. the ones you keep on your kitchen surface for hot trays and saucepans etc.

    I don't really buy food products from there .. my local one has started selling milk now lol.

    It's even sadder buying expensive sweets from the cinema, so I'd rather buy it from the 99p store, but ironically, I'd never set foot in Poundland specifically.

    So true. You can get a fat pack of Starbursts for £1, whereas in cinemas it costs more than double the price and in supermarkets, like Tescos, £1.50+.

    What do you mean? They sell products that are cheaper elsewhere? In my local 99p store, I get 4 Flakes for 99p.

    It is the smell of congregation of poor people,I believe.
    When your joke doesn't work the first time, going for another shot just makes you look pathetic.

    Anywho ... I agree with the shampoo/sweets etc, great from Poundland/99p shop. I've also seen some stuff in their homeware section for less (obviously) than the exact same brand in Asda. Cheap Uni stuff e.g. - 3 tumblers for £1, can't go wrong.

    Who doesn't love a bargain?

    Well they're called "The 99p shop" and have "99p" all over the windows and everything..... but they sell stuff for more than 99p. Like the other day I went in and they had £49.99 rugs in the window and toasters for like £19.99..... :no:

    Nope. The ones nearest me are so busy and quite tacky.

    I only use Poundland for photographic paper.

    Oh, I see. There are loads of them local to me. I lol when I see a huge sign reading "99p Store" and underneath it, in small, it reads "most items 99p or less".
