Following on from our blog post on Monday, our Amazing Value 200g packs of After Eights are in stores nationwide now!! These will be in stores for the run up to (dare I say it) Christmas!! So why not stock up early on your after dinner mints and drop in to your local Poundland now!
Did you all see the Big Brother final last night? We are so glad that Josie won and I wonder how the old housemates will get on with her in Ultimate Big Brother! There are some great housemates that have gone back in and a few strange choices – I am sure it will be excellent viewing in any case!!
Have you seen this article in the Daily News Corner - Milk row exposes gutless UK Prime Minister. Prime Minister, David Cameron has shot down his Health Minister, Anne Milton’s proposal to scrap the free milk scheme for under-fives stating he “did not like the idea”. The scheme has run for many years and is now outdated, yet such a scheme will cost £59 million to run next year and clearly “does not provide value for money in difficult time” as Anne Milton pointed out.
Here at Poundland, our 2 litre bottles of milk, either semi skimmed or whole, are just £1 per bottle – showing you just how affordable it is to the average shopper and the Amazing Value we offer! That is 9p per 189lt, compared to ASDA who charge 72p per litre (14p per 189lt). Head down to your local Poundland store to pick up our chilled food (available at selected stores).
It’s the Big Brother final tonight and I can’t believe it has come round so quickly – we are so excited here are Poundland HQ! Who do you all want to win?? We think that Josie has it in the bag and will walk away with the £100k! Plus for the first time ever, we have an ultimate Big Brother competition and I know there will be some great characters that we all remember from the last 9 years! I am sure it will be a great watch and will be sitting down with my cuppa at 8pm! You still have time to pick up your sweet treats at Poundland – crisps, sweets and drinks all at £1 each – go on treat yourself!
