99p Shop!!!!
« on: April 17, 2012, 19:35 »
I laughed when I happened across this place on its opening day honestly thinking what rubbish will be here!!

Still I went in and was pleasantly surprised.  Everything is 99p or under and not just 98p!! I think the local large supermrket might suffer a bit as some brand stuff in there a lot cheaper!!!

But anyhow gardening stuff similar to poundland except not a pound!! A range of fuschia other bedding plants and 1.5 metre cloches as well as flowerpots, will def be going back in for a nosey.

(I saved a whole 3p compared to poundland  :tongue2:)

yeh our 99p stores good for the gardening stuff except the plants as they dont water them >:(. i noticed some hesian sack in there the other day - which i thought where good (might get some later on to store crops in them, and i also sometimes get some tools for the garden from there - about 5 years ago i picked up mini matock with a 3 prongs on the other side - i used it all the time - unfortunately it broke last week - so i'll try and pick another one up soon. ;)

Yeah Im cloches in the brain at the moment, been cutting up plastic bottles for my baby gems! :wacko:

I have pound land ones as well, they did the job last year, the metal bits feel sturdier on the new ones I thought, either way it will still do the job!

We had a very nice 99p shop opened in Spalding.  They took over the closed Woolworth's shop.  Some good bits in there, but they only lasted about 2 years and closed.  Pity!

Still, our Poundland in Boston is okay, and we have a QD too.

Took my mum to the 99p shop when she was visiting from N Ireland, she had trouble grasping the concept that everthing was 99p or else   :lol:

Her partner  and I stood chuckling when she approached a member of staff to ask how much the things she wanted to buy were  :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Check out a bird seed supplier for hessian sacks,ours on the market sell the used sacks, I got some the other year for 20p each. I think they may have gone up a bit now.
