Bargains
 Bargains   by Brian  (Fuji Finepix S7000)
Another bargain shop opens in town in the old BHS store on Standishgate.

Comment by David Fairclough on 1st December 2010 at 07:55
Did the old BHS move into the new Grand?


Comment by catherine on 1st December 2010 at 08:22
not many people about! yes david BHS is in the grand arcade now


Comment by irene roberts on 1st December 2010 at 09:12
not been in yet, but glad the building is occupied; nothing looks worse in a town centre than empty shops. I think b and m will do well.


Comment by RonD on 1st December 2010 at 09:57
[Elizabeth Wilding]. Bought one of my earlier cameras from there 1955.It was an Exata B .12 on 127 film.F1.9 primoplan lens.A lovely camera. Wildings started in the room above where they are now.Shop and studio.


Comment by Mr Weeam on 1st December 2010 at 10:10
Another place for the dolites to go after they drop their 8 kids off at school. Who buys this crap?


Comment by betty on 1st December 2010 at 10:46
I have been in b & m bargins.and i think it is better when a shop is occupied than empty.To say its another place for people on the dole to go in,is out of order.I have seen an whole range of ages going in there.


Comment by marie on 1st December 2010 at 11:48
Mr weeam i think your comment is out of order i dont think its all crap theres lots of branded names i think your confusing it with a pound shop


Comment by RON on 1st December 2010 at 11:55
Mr Weeam obviousley you haven't been into one of these stores??? They sell mostly brand name goods at discount prices. If you want to go into Asda,Tesco, etc. and pay £1.00 for something you can get here for 80p You have more money than sense. For people on tight budgets these kind of shops or a Godsend


Comment by Common Sense on 1st December 2010 at 15:16
Now that the cold weather is here -Fat Balls for birds (six pack ) ASDA £1.31 b+m 49p . Don't know about Tesco. You know where to go now


Comment by alan lad on 1st December 2010 at 18:30
MR Weeam with a comment like that , you must think you are above others if so please WATER AWAY


Comment by Mick on 1st December 2010 at 19:00
Mr Common sense I dont you will find the fat balls that are for sale in B&M are the same quality as the fat balls that are in ASDA.

And the same goes for everything else that B&M sells, its just cheap junk that they sell but a lot of people dont mind it.


Comment by John on 1st December 2010 at 19:43
At the end of the day it's all down to quality and how much money you have. I shop at Asda, Tesco and Morrisons stores, I go to B&Q for my DiY. I've never been to Netto, Aldi, pound saver or B&M bargins...I dont need to.


Comment by Dave johnson on 1st December 2010 at 19:53
Mick when did you last have a look round? I was pleasantly surprised by the goods they sell. I drink Tetley Extra Strong tea bags, Asda/Morrisons £2.28 B&M £1.47. Think I know where I'll buy them


Comment by joan on 1st December 2010 at 19:56
I dont think the birds would mind were you got them from


Comment by Anne on 1st December 2010 at 20:09
Mr Weeam obvious that your on more money than the minimum wage and can afford the more expensive shops .You want to try and bring a family up on £240 for a 40hour week and make your childrens Christmas a happy one,I rely on B&M for value that I can afford.I work 40hours and yes I have benefits as well as working 40hours. You arrogant b***ard


Comment by cullie on 1st December 2010 at 20:43
well said anne hes probley a 30 bob millionaire take no notice of the weener bloke and yes i also work 6days a week with a wife and child and it wouldnt mind shopping at b&ms

Thats just it Dave there selling stuff nobody else wants, you might like Tetley Extra Strong but not many others do thats wht B&M have ended up with all thats left.

And your right some stuff is cheaper but it wont last a slong as quality goods so in the long run its the poor folk who shop at B&M who are losing out.


Comment by gerald pilkington canada on 1st December 2010 at 23:54
if you dodnt play nice you wigan folk god will get you lol


Comment by peterp on 2nd December 2010 at 08:05
everybody to their own over shopping we shop in sainsburys asda morrissons tesco etc but still buy from b&m because some of the branded goods are cheaper than the supermarket eg vesta meals 99p supermarket £1-59.lets not turn into food snobs buy what you can afford.nice to see a down to earth photo by the way


Comment by HARDY BUTTS on 2nd December 2010 at 09:01
Weeam, Mick, What a pair of SNOBS. I could call them something worse but this is an open forum. I bet they don't travel First Class on the trains though.


Comment by John on 2nd December 2010 at 10:25
Anne you're a bit strong with your words...it's freedom, people can shop where they like, thats why we have so many stores. As I said before, it's all about how much money you have...otherwise we would all be driving around in Rollers, Mercs, Jags and other top cars. We'd all live in mansions....it's how much can we afford. Money tells us how we live our lifestyles.


Comment by Lisa on 2nd December 2010 at 11:02
Mick, Asda AKA Walmart one of the cheapest shops in America is probabley on par with B&M.


Comment by Bob ( good with money) on 2nd December 2010 at 12:48
I work more than 40 hours and only get child benefit. But we have standards in what we eat and wear, we'll have a great xmas and new year. I dont smoke or drink so on a wage like Anne's we're able to afford quality goods.


Comment by jack on 2nd December 2010 at 15:50
people shop were they can afford wether its M an S or a pound shop its up to them .M an S sell some crap you have to shop around.


Comment by Mark on 2nd December 2010 at 17:38
To be honest, people can shop anywhere they like. Your occupation, family size and income are completely irrelevant. You might find something in B&M Bargains that you cant find in an expensive shop. Keep your nasty, pompous comments to yourself in future.


Comment by ERIC B on 3rd December 2010 at 10:49
Nowt up wi it, Toffee nose toffs whats it gettin do wi thee where folk buy their stuff.


Comment by sue on 3rd December 2010 at 12:04
Just been in M&S for a tin of stewed steak and went across the road to B&Ms and got quite a few bargains.


Comment by David on 4th December 2010 at 06:21
Haven't got a b+m in Worthing - yet - but I'm sure it would do well.


Comment by julie on 4th December 2010 at 16:28
I see a woman regular coming out of Lidel with M & S carrier bags


Comment by kayleigh on 4th December 2010 at 20:32
we have a B&M shop and there are good bargains as well as some crap( as you said ) you have to look around.
If I won the lottery I would still enjoy finding a bargain.


Comment by Watchful on 5th December 2010 at 23:18
B&M sell lots of top brand names if you look for them, only silly folk think pay top whack for something that will be thrown away in a few weeks. Be a wise shopper, after eight mints in pound shop £1 ok the box is not as big but....good for fatties.


Comment by tricia on 9th December 2010 at 15:38
My word what a lot of self righteous pompous snobs we have on here.....

I used to shop at B and M in the 1970's.. at St Annes on sea. Just goes to show all the snobs do not live on the coast.

Had a look round B and M a few weeks ago on a trip home.... did not buy anything though...and by the way... I drive a Jag.... lolol


Comment by Jean Davies on 27th December 2010 at 02:24
There is a need for shops that sell goods at cheaper prices. Not everyone is a multi millionaire. We came to England in 2007, my husbands good watch stopped. The battery was under warranty back in Australia so did not want to tamper with it. He bought a CHEAP watch for 5 quid that watch is still going. Nothing looks worse than an empty shop. Your Mr Weeam is a snobbbb.


Comment by Jackie on 6th January 2011 at 19:28
I work in Social Care and support young, severely neglected kids. I have a small budget so rely on these bargain shops when buying birthday/xmas gifts for these children who would not, otherwise, receive anything.
