Pre credit crunch noses might have been turned up at QD. Now people can't get enough of the place. The reality is QD was always the best place to go for stuff. You know, those little things you find yourself needing, but don't want to spend a fortune on. Plastic food boxes, boxes of screws, a car wash brush, photo frames. The Norwich store, at the top of St Stephens is a piled high with exactly that kind of thing. Good place for getting cheap kids party things too
QD is a large budget retail store located in the city centre, near to Chapelfield shopping centre and a number of bus stops.
The shop is vast, occupying two levels which are accessible by a escalators, and there are various areas which are raised or lowered that require the ability to use steps or else you might have some difficulty.
The shop itself caters to a variety of needs, and you can find all sorts of things in here, including clothes, electronic goods, light bulbs, sweets, toys, candles and decorative items and other homeware products. They also sell drinks and crisps at a reduced price.
There are lots of members of staff around to help, although the ones I've spoken to haven't been particularly friendly. The queues are also sometimes quite long.
Located at the top of St Stephen, just to the side of the main entrance of Chappelfield.
It's one of two just like about every other store in the city.
This site has two levels with the option to take an escalator down to an area for picture frames, mirrors, kictchen and lighting.
Upstairs you have an array of season items which can range from Xmas left over bargains to summer equipment. Passed this area you then have the clothes. There are some good deals and often interesting designs that are good quality.
There are changing rooms where you can see if the item fits but you need to ask to be let in.
They then have a DIY section which is well stocked though sometimes Poundland just across the way may stick it for a cheaper price.
They have some snacky foods such as flapjacks by the checkouts which are pretty yum.
This is a great store if you are on a bit of a budget, it is based at the top of St stephens street in Norwich and has a couple of multistory car parks nearby (although not that cheap). They sell a variety of items including food, clothing, hoeware, pet products etc. The prices are very good but in some cases you do get what you pay for. It has two stories, you can access the bottom story via escalator and come back up via stairs, they also have a lift for disabled people or those which buggys. There are not normally more then two tills open so in busy times expect a long queue
This is a very large store based at the top of St. Stephens Street near the roundabout. It is full of clothing, pictures, diy, christmas decoratons, chocolates and many more bits and pieces all at really low prices. I often go around to have a look around for any bits that I need. Childrens clothing are fantastic value espcially for uniforms. They also have some good stocking filler ideas here too. They selection of Christmas decorations are excellent and the prices are all really good. It's quite a spacious store with plenty of room to walk around and have a good look. They sell a good range of homeware items too. These are mainly in the basement of this shop. If you ever need help there are always many members of staff around to help and if it's really busy often there's no need to worry about the queing as they always have lots open to reduce the waiting times. This store is great to go and have a look around as there's always bargains to be found and the quality is always excellent. The closest parking to be able to walk to this is in Chapelfield's as this is situated right besides this store. I have found though it's often best to visit this earlier on in the day particularly at weekends when it's most busiest.
What a treasure trove of goodies. You can even use a trolley in there nowadays. Great selection fo food bits, homeware, DIY, book and electrical items. Always worth a price check in here before you buy elsewhere. Sometimes dont get me wrong there are a few bits of tack but otherwise well worth it. Especially good for camping bits and candles.
