    Stocks over 3000 Lines
    by Jakejakejake
    By my count it only stocks 1304 lines.

    As with any pound shop you should check that the item isn't cheaper at the supermarket.

    Mr Sheen Polish Aerosol £1 at that shop
    ASDA price 87p

    Some non brand shaving foam at that shop is £1.
    ASDA own 78p 250ml, 98p 400ml, value brand 250ML 48p

    Brillo 10 Pack there £1, ASDA £0.83

    Tealights pack of 50 for £1 there, ASDA 100 for £1.48

    I had a look at this site and was wondering why they feel the need to have the £1.00 price against each item, given that it's a pound shop, when I saw

    https://www.onlinepoundshop.com/detail/46/767/index.htm

    for £0.00.

    I presume that you'd get this for free if you slipped it in with an order and maybe there's other items at the same price.

    I see they've fixed this now.

    oooh this is good. my pound shop is always filled with smelly scratters most of whom are carting their kids round in the middle of the day even though they are in their school uniforms and clearly should be at school.

    finally, poundshop in nice smelling own home.

    ps: no offence intending to anyone on here. unless you go to my poundshop instead of taking your kids to school
    I love MSE!!!

    I'm not too sure about buying something called "PMS" or Facial Crub even if they are only £1!

    Caveat Emptor
    Has anyone had an order delivered from these guys? Always better to err on the side of caution with new companies.

    Looks like the domain name was only purchased in February.
  • gazbert
    Terrible navigation though. Half the items don't even have a name. They seem to use brand names rather than item names. So rather than have a padlock called padlock, it's called black spur. As is a set of paint bruishes and so on. Loads of different items all with the same name. Thus neatly rendering the search tool useless.

    Nice.

    Yes you are right PMS and sometimes known as P&M's are a huge company from Basildon in Essex. Alot of cuddly toys come from there but they do produce lots of different lines - I had a friend that worked there and my dad does alot of their deliveries too.

    by Grabbit
    If you are referring to the round batteries ensure that the item description doesn't say "1 battery for £1" as some of the photo's show several batteries in the pack but they are actually 1 batter for £1. I am referring to the PC motherboard batteries but they maybe others too.

    I think Grabbit is reffering to the fact that the battery page is full of pictures of cigarette papers!
