The 99p Store
Advantages: Cheap, good selection of things
Disadvantages: Bit hit-and-miss on products sometimes
Brilliant. Woolworths in my town closed, which was sad, but then was replaced by this wonderful place.
I usually go to the 99p Store before the Supermarket and Boots, to see if I can pick up any bargains in household goods, food and toiletries and am rarely disappointed.
While they don't have some of the brands and the selection that you might be used to in supermarkets, you can pick up some real gems. My favourites have to be Simple Shower wash, which is twice the price in other places and Bevellini Sundried Tomatoes - no longer are these a luxury item in my cupboard!
Food wise, it's great for 'cupboard basics' like pop, squash, crisps, biscuits (all the healthy stuff!!) but you won't find anything fresh. They stock lots of the things you used to find in Woolies like hardware, kitchenware, batteries etc, but all at 99p. It is a bit hit-and-miss in that one week they'll have something, and the next they won't, but you can kind of expect that from a store like this.
Overall, great to pop into for bits and bobs for the house. There's no frills, it's not a 'wonderful shopping experience' but it does help you save money on things, which is never a bad thing in my book!
Summary: High street staple
