One thing Mick, ITS BIG.


Comment by Johnny on 27th June 2016 at 08:00
I bet this didnt cost a quid to erect!!
Must be for the whole North-West!


Comment by Alex on 27th June 2016 at 09:20
Johnny: it cost £1, everything £1.
One of the biggest Distribution Depots is Morrisons just off the M5.


Comment by Johnny on 27th June 2016 at 09:32
Thanks Alex for the info :O)

Sainsbury's just off the M25 at Walthan Abbey. It's got over three miles of storage space...that's big!


Comment by Ann on 27th June 2016 at 09:41

Comment by Mick on 27th June 2016 at 09:55
There on about opening one in Mayfair but it will be a £1,000 Shop because the rich want a Poundland too.

Nice to see something rise from the ashes after the GP fire of 2011. I worked there from 1992-2011.


Comment by Bod on 27th June 2016 at 14:43
Johnny ,doesn,t matter how much it cost it's still full of crap.


Comment by Ab on 27th June 2016 at 19:29
I agree with Bod there. With all these poundland type shops springing up everywhere, it just goes to show just how poor we are and are becoming. And because of poverty, or people who are struggling to afford even the basics even when they're supposedly earning a good wage and working every hour possdible, most people have no choice but to go to these places, and of course the money hungry people running them are rubbing their hands.

It all depends if you want quality, if you do, don't go to poundland.
You know, people say ie Aldi is cheaper than Asda/Tesco...but it's not for the same branded name.
Things are cheaper ie beans, but there not Heinz beans.


Comment by Lynne on 28th June 2016 at 15:51
Spot on, Bod! Most of it imported crap. Its time we rebuilt our manufacturing base.


Comment by Mr T on 6th July 2016 at 17:38
I know a few people started working here and left within a couple of weeks, total sweat shop, the workhouse is back in Wigan!!
