“99p red balloons go buy”

published 12/06/2009

ProEverything is 99p

ConsThe long queues

Retailer - 99p stores 99p red balloons go buy ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Store owner, Nadir Lalani ‘s clever ideology of bringing the 99p Store to the High Street is a piece of marketing genius, as the 99p is a DNA force that magnifies the need for bargains that have been in-built in the human...

“Money Saving Store!”

published 25/11/2009

ProGreat bargains to be had.

ConsStaff look a bit misserble.

I had never really heard of 99p stores until my boyfriend and I went Christmas shopping in Birmingham recently. My boyfriend joked (well at least I think he was joking) that my eyes lit up when I saw the store, because it was one whole penny cheaper than shopping in Poundland. Obviously I just...

“You'll get a penny change!”

published 16/10/2014

ProLots of cheap stuff.

ConsCam sometimes look a bit untidy.

The cut-price stores and supermarkets seem to be popping up all over the place these days, and who can blame them with people wanting to buy cheaper and get more for their money? And the 99p store is no exception. The one in my town of Great Yarmouth has been here for a number of years now...

ProOne price throughout the store, cheap & cheerful.

ConsStock varies from visit to visit

Review of 99p Stores The concept of 'cheap' stores is not a new one, Poundland, Poundsavers, Poundstretchers have all paved the way towards cheaper than High St shops and become familiar in our towns. 99p Stores were new to me however. I first visited a branch last year in the Weston Favell...

ProSome good bargains, especially on branded goods.

Soon after Woolworths shut in our small town centre, the 99p Store opened in their place. I thought that I would miss Woolworths, but the great value items that I have bought from the 99p Store over the past 18 months have changed my mind. MILD Disadvantages Good bargain hunting is an art...

“How Much Is This Please?”

published 06/03/2006

ProSome Good Bargains

ConsObscure Food Products, Not Everything Is A Bargain

A new discount Store has opened fairly recently in Sheffield where I live called the 99p Stores and I have found it almost impossible to walk past it without popping in and having a quick look around. I had assumed that this was a one off Store until I recently read an article in a Newspaper...

I am the sort of person who is always on the lookout for a good bargain, and when a 99p store opened just down the road from where I live a couple of months ago, I was rather pleased, and eager to test out what they were like. Walking in the shelves are packed with products and goods with...

ConsOver spending

As I have been away from my home town for some time, it was quite a shock to see the changes that have taken place.. one of the strangest was the 99p shop.... not that the pound shop was enough, but now someone has been able to move in and beat what was once the cheapest place to shop. The 99p...

Picture a typical winter scene. Not the snow filled and lamp-lit Victorian Christmas scene. Rather, The Boyfriend in a thin jumper and me in a Parka and hipsters combination which leaves an unpleasantly chilly gap, walking between 1960's buildings in a freezing wind. Eyes down on the damp...

Well it had to happen didnt it! There has of course been the huge phenomenon of the pound stores, but someone had to go one better! I suppose its a bit too much for it to continue down to a penny? Actually with this economic climate its probably not! I only know of this particular one although I...

Over the past few years my shopping habits have drastically changed. At one time I had an abundance of money and lived in Central London and sort of lived a high life (I wasn't happy mind you!). Nowadays I've settled down and I live to a budget and am happily single with lots of bills to pay...

ConsAsking for change!

As the "Credit Crunch" marks its second anniversary there's nothing more enjoyable in your lunch hour than to wander around these discount stores and watch the middle-class people having to do some shopping there. Actually there are a lot better things to do in your break, especially looking at...

“Cheap and Cheerless”

published 14/11/2009

Pro-

Cons-

I've always loved pound shops - a great place to pick up cheap cosmetics and beauty products, cleaning supplies, and tasty treats for the store cupboard . But why pay a pound when you could be paying 99P - so when a 99p store opened in Nottingham a couple of years ago, I started going there...

“Cheap or what!”

published 16/03/2012

ProCheap price.

ConsPoor service.

I don't really think that I need to give of a description of this, as the name would suggest it all to you! But for the purposes of this site and for earning some more money, I will tell you a little bit about the shop. My local shop is situated on the outskirts of the city of Plymouth, in an...

“Bargain basement time.”

published 02/07/2009

ProLoads of cheapies of all types.

ConsHustle and bustle.

I love these places. I get dragged into the branch at Chatham on a regular basis, this is after the good lady has tired of Primarks. While she is in there i can honestly smoke at least five cigarettes and consume half a pound of wine gums. The reason that i have ended up in the 99p shops is...
