Newest Review: ... quickly. The toys are mainly nasty cheap plastic, again with the odd exception of last years non sellers. Stationary seems to be low grade, eg pencils that forever need sharpening due to lead breakage. My local Canterbury store seems to be full of immigrant workers who struggle with basic English which I guess is due to minimum wage, Unfortunately this does prove to be a problem when you ... more

I used to love Poundstretcher and I have visited quite a few nationwide but since 2005+ it has gone downhill. There are bargains to be found but mostly on food, cleaning and health and beauty products. Most of the other products you buy at your own peril. Most appliances and home-wares are cheap tat and break very quickly. The toys are mainly nasty cheap plastic, again with the odd exception of last years non sellers.

The website is rubbish, you can't view what they sell. Why have a website that can't be used.

This is probaly one of the best poundstretchers there is, they have a new manager in charge, who for a change puts the customer 1st, he has cleaned up this store asnd go out of his way to ensure both customers and staff are happy, all the staff and customers love him, as he is funny and so down to earth,i would recommmend this shop to each and everybody who reads this review, i have used over poundstretchers before but none are like this one.Sandrs

I am employee there for the next 2 weeks then I am gone and I can't wait. I am contracted to work 16 hours aweek for the last month I have been working about 60. I am a sales assistant who has now just been informed that I will be the only key holder for the store for the next two weeks that means 14, 11 hour days with no days off, my area manager has told me to stop bothering him. Please don't shop at poundstretcher the way they treat their staff is vile, hopefully one day they'll go into liquidation.

I refer to the Poundstretcher website, namely: http://www.poundstretcher.co.uk. If you ever wish to send them an E Mail via their contacts page - don't bother because they never reply. Three times in as many weeks I have tried to get an answer out of this organisation and never had a response.As of today I have also tried to ring their head office - another waste of time. In fact try and find a telephone number that actually gets you connected - no chance.Obviously customer focus is not a part of this organisation's policy. It is a joke and their retail outlets a disgrace, god knows how they actually manage to trade - it's a miracle!
