This place is what Woolworths could have become if it they hadn't sold CDs and realised what the aspiring classes of Kentish Town want - style on a budget. Excellent gardening section, weird budget food (usually perilously close to best before date), bargain luggage and a fabulous male grooming section. Where else can you buy an aftershave called Gorge?
"You can stretch my pound as far as you like darling." I am a big fan of Poundstretcher. It is difficult to categorise as it really is an odds-and-sods shop. I like to think of it as an adventure store for adults. Every shelf is stocked with resplendent randomness. Ok maybe i'm going to far with the resplendent bit, but joy of joys this store is filthy cheap and I love it.
From huge jars of pickled beetroot to fairy lights, storage boxes to tweezers, I promise you there will be something in here to make you part with the coins in your pocket. Herein lies the beauty of Pounstretcher, you will only have to part with your coins and not your notes. It really is fantastic value for many of your household needs, convenience groceries and snacks.
The only thing to look out for is the 'Best Before' dates on the food stuff. They may not have passed the BB date but they may be close.
It is a recession people so don't be shy, head to your local Poundstretcher and bag yourself a bargain.
