this is a shop i am in daily, they sell all sorts of things just for a pound, i buy all my toiletries and cleaning things out of here.totally fantastic and most of the staff very helpfull, its very busy all he time showing how populaar this shop is xxxx
Poundland is a "does what it says on the tin" type shop.
What the future holds for it, who knows. I always love the 99cents store in the Simpsons wild west, where you could get a piano and other expensive items for 99cents. Obviously inflation will eventually mean repositioning is needed, but until then I can use it to get a few quirky things I can't get elsewhere - Like pickled Garlic (yeap, hooked after a trip to Norway).
Poundland it's is pretty tatty, but you get what you pay for and thing are very cheap there.
What you see is what you get.Cheap and as long as you know the goods will not last for ever.Although some tools bought have stood up very well.Easy to buy stuff you don't really need because it is cheep but it is cheep because the quality is lacking.
can take a long time to be served but they are not M & S.
Despite the above I often find great bargains.
Shame you cant order online - shop can get very packed and there is more products than actual any where to walk! Alot of the time i see shop lifters and point them out to staff but they seem uniterested in doing anything. Returning items that you have bought because you have used them at home and they broke can be a task... I bought a very very large mug that had a rather thin handle when my hubby had a hot drink the handle came away from the mug and hot tea ended up all over him, but pound land on returning tried to replace with a small mug! i said my hubby wants a large! she said fathers dad is over and there all in the warehouse..after complaining she gave me my money back.. So expect poor quality items and poor customer service.
Normally buy toiletries as they sell top brand at a lot less. Sometimes find a bargain.
What's not too like here? I love the place, it's a right little gold mine for all sorts of things, you name it, they have it, for ....... yep, £1! Despite what you might think they do sell branded goods, my latest bargain, 4 Duracell hp7 batteries for £1. You will find that some of the cheap branded items aren't the same size as you would get in say Tesco but they are still cheaper, like Toblerone.
I returned a pack of car headlamp bulbs with the receipt that it were
obviously faulty without opening the blister pack,and was told to find another one.....but it was the last one so when i said this to the assistant she said "NO REFUNDS ALLOWED SO PICK SOMETHING TO REPLACE IT"...i said i didnt want anything else, but in front of other customers she said it was company policy,so i had no choice...I complained again and a young man eventually appeared and gave me my pound back...what company argues over a pound...SO MUCH FOR CUSTOMER SERVICE...
These guys are cheaper for bugin things like folders, envelopes etc... than some wholesalers and definitely much more then WHSMITHS.
Smiths were selling an expanding pocket folder for £5 and I got a similar one for just £1!!
It's funny sometimes you hear people having conversations like is it really £1.00 yes it certainly is in this time of austerity and people being hard pushed, it pays to shop around and this is the place to start, they have so many great items both in foods and hardware goods, in fact you could get half your weekly shop here and make great savings, just take care to look at item and think of price outside, as some of the items are as expensive if not more so.
Don't ask how Poundland can do what they do for the price, ask how everybody else gets away with charging two or three times as much for the same products.
Okay, so there's some stuff you wouldn't buy (but obviously somebody does) but I always come out having bought more than I expected.
