Saw this restaurant the other day:
Purely for research purposes I popped into my local Poundland & sure enough there was a small section of this shite. The only thing they didn't have was the Don mask.Has anyone actually seen this stuff for sale? Physically, in reality?
No pricing or EAN barcodes.
No merchandise signage.
Random Alpen bar box (?) over on right of shelf.
Image not findable during a perfunctory reverse search.
Wow. Amazing.Purely for research purposes I popped into my local Poundland & sure enough there was a small section of this shite
There may only ever have been one...and that was sold quite a long time ago...:fnord:The only thing they didn't have was the Don mask.
I heard on the radio earlier in the week that the UK economy is showing signs of recovery and appears to be gradually strengthening.Purely for research purposes I popped into my local Poundland & sure enough there was a small section of this shite. The only thing they didn't have was the Don mask.
Yup, you can send off for a lovely garment that arrives looking like a well-used mailbag. Been had that way myself.At our smallish shopping centre there are 5 dress shops. Recently they were all bought by the same group and because I was getting emails from 2 of them where I often shop I now get emails from all of them.
Trouble is they all have wonderful sales but it's all for online shopping and I prefer to look at or try on things before I buy.
Shops need to figure out how to court the people who would shop in person while selling also to the internet age.All while the high street retail sector is dying on its feet.
I guess online retail is assuredly the future.
I already spotted one on the day of my interview there (or it was a honest mistake) ... I was standing outside, an old bloke wearing sunglasses went to walk out and the alarm went off. He was carrying a coat that still had the security tag on so I smiled and told him, he shuffled back in, put it back and then left the store without buying anything or saying anything lol ..And shoplifters Swifty
I thought all the Woolworths closed down?Coles supermarket needs to up its game! When I did the shopping on Sunday, there were only two staff on the express lanes, one in the self scan section and not a single person at the proper checkouts. I ended up putting everything back on the shelves and went to Woolworths, where they actually employ people to be on checkouts!
You're kidding - they're all over the place (assuming you're in the UK, that is...)Never even heard of B&M until today. Are you sure it's real?
Google informs me that the nearest B&M to me is at least an hours drive in any direction (except South as that would need a boat to get to).You're kidding - they're all over the place (assuming you're in the UK, that is...)
Mind you, they're a sort of cuckoo shop, taking over the premises of other brands. For example, some of the ones around here that I can think of:
Lichfield (was Woolworths)
Tamworth (same, I think)
Brownhills (ex Homebase)
Aldridge (ex Focus/Do-It-All)
Difficult to define exactly what they are, but they're OK, if you're not overly-discerning (which suits me!). I go there for cheap Lucozade multipacks, various crisps and chocolates, household cleaning stuff, storage boxes. They do a bit of everything, a bit like a slightly bigger version of Home Bargains, which the same mixture of well-known brands at sensible prices and borderline tat. Home Bargains itself I see as a slightly upmarket version of Poundland...
There was that ex Woolies staff member who re opened her old store as Wellworths .. I wonder if that's still open? ..Woolworths is still going in Australia.
