Glad to see this thread hasn't been locked!

(Potentially) interesting/exciting news for those in Glasgow - the old Argyle Street, Glasgow Poundworld site now has a new occupant (picture taken around 8.30pm on Saturday):

One Below is a name that's new to me but competition is always healthy (Poundland, in my opinion, are the numero uno, deservedly so, as I'm a big fan).

Edit: And, I didn't know this, looks as though Chris Edwards is back in the game! "OneBelow is the latest venture by Poundworld founder Chris Edwards and will sell a variety of household products and food for under £1, according to The Grocer.
The first branch to open will be in Leeds at the end of February, with further plans to open stores in Bradford, Wakefield, Glasgow, Irvine and two in London by the end of March."

Great news! I'm a big admirer of Chris as well!

    I love it that OneBelow's shelf labels are crystal-clear, showing the price and the item - seems consistent throughout the store, which is great.

    Some quick things from Argyle Street, Glasgow:

    Bio Glow Clean Skin Moisturising 3 In 1 Face Wash 100ml, £1 (Cucumber & Camomile, free from soap/alcohol/no parabens)

    Bio Glow Clean Skin Cucumber Peel Off Mask 100ml (not a fan of peel-off masks, personally!), Cruelty-Free and Vegan, £1
    (to be fair, I see these Bio Glow items at a few places for £1)
    VLBqN4J.jpg?1
    Fdgitrix Cubez, £1
    PaDbOd6.jpg
    (Didn't take a photo in store, woops) I also got a Wisdom Step By Step 0-2 years Baby Toothbrush (older options available) for 89p, cheaper than Poundland :)

    Though - annoyingly - OneBelow charged me 59p on my receipt! Bah! Didn't realise till I got home.

    From Argyle Street, Glasgow: (German Import) Aussie Pure Volume Conditioning Mousse (With Australian Kakadu Plum) 180ml, £1
    (English version is "Aussie Air Light Foam Conditioner Pure Locks Volume/For fine hair that feels a little thin").

    Also, it seems those Impulse Shower Gels are indeed 59p - the shelf label has now been changed. I was told over a week ago it was a misprice (assume it was a "promo price" when the store originally opened).

    Iceland has agreed in principle to acquire 19 of Poundworld’s stores, with four earmarked to become Iceland’s Food Warehouses.

    If the deal is completed, the remaining 15 will become regular Iceland stores.

    Thought these looked great - Love Hearts (Strawberry), Parma Violets (Violet), Rainbow Drops (Peach), Drumstick Squashies (Raspberry) Reed Diffusers, in store at the Argyle Street, Glasgow, store earlier.

    Though Hotukdeals suggests these can be found in B&M for 50p!
