Anyone watching? Even Caroline Aherne sounds bored commentating. hmm

Sparklingbrook Wed 07-Nov-12 20:27:26

Only me then? it's riveting.

InNeedOfBrandy Wed 07-Nov-12 20:30:39

I'm watching, I thought it would be more interesting.

Sparklingbrook Wed 07-Nov-12 20:32:28

I haven't learnt anything but it's strangely compelling Brandy. grin The people of Chester not happy. shock

I'm watching. I'm a 99p Store convert though.

I'm glued. But then we have four pound shops in my town. One even just stocks bog roll.

InNeedOfBrandy Wed 07-Nov-12 20:34:41

No that woman saying up a side street somewhere LOL

I'm slightly compelled to go shopping and waste a tenner for ten things.

KenDoddsDadsDog Wed 07-Nov-12 20:35:16

It's quite boring. I'm a total pound land convert

BooyhooRemembering Wed 07-Nov-12 20:35:23

i'm nipping in and out of it. just saw the comments from rich people not being happy about the poundshops being in their towns.

We had a Poundland open recently. It is full of tatt! grin Even the staff are rubbish, obviously don't spend much on training.

Sparklingbrook Wed 07-Nov-12 20:36:25

Caroline Aherne does sound really bored, and slightly disinterested.

Sparklingbrook Wed 07-Nov-12 20:59:37

So what have we learnt?

InNeedOfBrandy Wed 07-Nov-12 21:02:07

Um it comes from china and is not quite full sized, not anything we didn't know...

scurryfunge Wed 07-Nov-12 21:02:50

Not much! I know that cleaning cloths are the same the world over. Buying in the 99p store allows me to buy my main shop for food at Waitrose or the likes.

LadyMaryCreepyCrawley Wed 07-Nov-12 21:03:29

What on Earth was the point of that? confused I want some of my licence fee refunded! angry

Gumby Wed 07-Nov-12 21:04:21

Why is Caroline aherne commentating on this crap?

She used to be a comedy genius

Bring back mrsmerton grin

I have never seen a 99p shop. In fact I have only seen a Poundland (yummy for sweets for the office now there's no Woolies).

noisytoys Wed 07-Nov-12 21:11:20

I can't get the pushchair in our 99p shop if they run out of space on the shelves they just pile things on the floor so there's no space to move

Pound wars? We have 99p wars round here!
(99p Stores vs SAM 99p - the 98p Shop and 97p Store went out of business. Or renamed. Hard to tell.)

Interesting going round and seeing what is same/more than in mainstream stores, and what is a real bargain that day.
