The latest pound shop addition to Leicester is Pound Plus. The shop took over MVC earlier this year and it seems has been a roaring success so far.
Like many poundshops its often very crowded with little room for space down each aisle. However there are a lot of items of offer including well known brands like Colgate or Fairy., Whilst the store isn't as big as say Poundland down the street there does seem to be a lot more variety here especially on food items. Cheap sweets and crisps are essential when you're throwing a party or just for your kids lunch box and they come through here with all the popular brands.
The staff though bring down the tone of the store in my opinion. They seem rather unfriendly and just bored with their job and there's really only three tills that are very small and have people queueing right round the store blocking up the aisles as they do. The products you buy are usually very good though be careful on trying to save a few quid on some items as the cheap alternative is awful [power tack for one - a cheap version of blue tack].
