Wow 99p fantastic what a bargain so how did I manage to spend £20.00! I am a sucker for the 99p store I like the idea that I am getting a bargain!
I have a large 99p store in my local town and I shop there regularly for crisps for lunch boxes plus household cleaners and tooth brushes are the regular products however I usually come out with far more than that!
99 p stores were opened in 2001 by nadir lalan proving very popular they are open nation wide and have 133 stores with more planed see the website to check for a store I your area www.99pstoresltd.com.
From toys to party ware, cleaning to snacks, stationery to toiletries, you name it the probably sell it but like all discount stores not all products will be back.
I mentioned that I regularly shop here and always buy crisps in here as tend to be a lot cheaper than the supermarket unless they have a buy one get one free offer on.
I also buy snacks here for the cinema naughty I know but for 99p the children get drink, crisps and chocolate very reasonable.
I also like the multi packs of hair ties brilliant value when the girls seem to loose them daily plus we have also got art and craft sets at a lot cheaper than any where else.
I also tend to get my carpet cleaner from here and clothes,
99p an item very quickly you have a heaving basket of bargains that you didn't know you needed so be warned not a shop for the easily tempted among us although each item is a bargain! Plus you cannot pay by card unless over a £5
I think these shops are brilliant offering amongst the rubbish you really do not need some excellent products I got party bags which I then filled and I spent £5 doing party bags for 25 kid's value you really cannot beat. My best bargain has to be Two M&S School skirts for 99p just ridiculous 50p a skirt and they have lasted well but even if she had rolled around the playground I really wouldn't have minded!
So what are you waiting for get a large bag and head for your nearest one.
