Johnny: it cost £1, everything £1.
One of the biggest Distribution Depots is Morrisons just off the M5.

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

Johnny ,doesn,t matter how much it cost it's still full of crap.

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.

Spot on, Bod! Most of it imported crap. Its time we rebuilt our manufacturing base.
