    I have certainly bought several reasonable priced toys for daughter's christmas which was cheaper than Asda ie dora treehouse, pooh game and pyjamas etc. I also buy Fairy liquidtabs for 2,99 when they are over 3.50 in the supermarket. Luckily I have a B&M 2 minutes drive from me or 10min walk - its a great shop and also buy some groceries as well.

    If ever you are in Cleveleys it is worth popping into the B&M there, this is the original store. Grumpy Grandad and I have been going there for years [they still run coach parties there]. A few weeks ago got 5 large catering tins of marrowfat peas at 49p per tin. Great for pea&ham soup, which I portioned out and froze [now got only 4 tins left, as have to ration Grumpy, or send him on long walks with our little old doggie]. They also currently have McDougalls packet puff pastry mix at 19p [short date], this is excellent, you just add water then roll fold a few times, [I added a little bit of butter to each fold jut to give it a better taste]. They also sell Warburtons at 1.09 which is 20 cheaper than most supermarkets.

    Yes you are quite right in that was the very first B & M's

    I've also been going there for years, although I feel that Home bargains (where Woolworth's were) are now giving them a bit of competition now

    I'm sure I read somewhere that the B&M stands for the initials of the people who first owned the store, the full name is B&M Bargains (or bargain madness) so it wouldn't make sense to say it twice!

    Going to give the Mario figures another mention, saw similar in Gamestation earlier for 7! We have Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, Bullet Bill, and the Bo-bomb and Goomba in a two pack.

    Bags of Walkers Steak and Onion and Tomato crisps, Seabrooks Worcester sauce crisps, Go Crispy in Italian Herb (like Snack-a-Jacks), all 10p per bag.

    Knorr Stockpot in Beef or Vegetable, 49p, 2 in supermarkets.
    D'you know, in 900 years of space and time, I've never met anyone who wasn't important

    I was so excited to hear they have opened one on Coventry after seeing all the bargains they have got to offer. I must have walked past it the other day without even noticing! I must take a walk up there.

    On a trip to Carlisle earlier in the week we called in to B & M for a cheap pair of gloves for my friend (she had left hers at home) - she got a pair for 99p. But what we were impressed with was the wine selection! My local B & M doesn't sell wine (why??) but in Carlisle the prices and selection were amazing - lots of nice wines for 3.99, including Oxford Landing, Blossom Hill, Wolf Blass. There were cheaper bottles but these are my favourites. We even bought a bottle (and some cheap plastic cups!) to enjoy on the train journey back home!

    A range of organic pickles and chutneys from Spice Tree 49p a jar.found them on line when I got home for 3-4 a jar. They had garlic, lime, pineapple, goosberry & mango.

    Add this to the Jamie Oliver Range which has been mentioned before at 59p a jar - black and green olives, sundried tomatoes and peppers, posh bread spreads and 3 or 4 kinds of pesto- and you can make up a really nice Christmas hamper.

    Regarding the store name, B & M stands for 'Bargain Madness' - why there's an 'and' in there, I've no idea. It's a running joke in our family when we're due to make a trip - 'off to 'Bargain and Madness''!

    Melvis and Totality, I was working today until 6, might have seen you both without realising!

    TravellingAbuela, with regards to alcohol, is the store newly opened? We've been open since October and have just got our alcohol in a week or so ago as we've just been granted our license from the Council, it takes a while to go through. Might be the same in your local?

    Been meaning to go for ages and have also spotted a few new (well to me) on my travels. The spice jars mentioned above and the Jamie Oliver stuff sound like bargains, cheers for posting!
