Introducing the Company Shop (Could be life changing) eg muller yogurts 6 for £1

Found 22nd Jun 2016
This could be life changing for someone. No joke.

Ive been a member of the company shop for many years now and I'm unsure whether people are aware of it. Therefore ill explain a little bit about it.

The deals they have there are unreal. All meat is minimum half price and most of the products they sell are waitress or marks and spencer's so it not rubbish! General rule on muller yogurts is 6 for £1 so some great deals. The first time you go expect to buy a lot. Freezer space is a MUST! You can't go with a shopping list as its whats there is what you get.

The catch:
Sadly not everyone can go (otherwise they'd be nothing left!) you have to be:

- Over 18 years of age
- Employed by, or are retirees of our partners
- Work in the emergency services* – including the Fire Brigade, Police and those employed directly by the NHS (This includes a lot of people so check)

They're quite strict you need a membership card to get in and can only take a maximum of one guest per visit and can only purchase 6 of each item unless specified.

Recently they have been giving out free bread at the exit as well XD.

Locations:
Grimsby
Barnsley
Middleton (Manchester)
Corby

If you live close by to any of these and fit the criteria id certainly check it out, you won't be disappointed!

I personally must save over £1000 a year.

If anyone else shops here please post a comment!

Yes, products may have a fault on the label

I think most people who live near already know about these places. Can drop on some fantastic bargains and some really decent stuff.

I shop at the Corby one and usually it's stock that can't be shifted (so shops produced/bought too much) or the labelling is wrong.

I got a giant box of kit kats for a £1 because they said 170g on the label and were meant to say 140g.

Everything is in date. It's just stuff that they don't think they'll sell in their main stores. So they sell it cheap to CS cheap instead of throwing it away in 3 months time.

Just great use of stock management.

Been using Barnsley shop for 20 years.

This is a wee bit ridiculous, you have to show them wage slips... Seems a stupid business policy to massively restrict your clientele

They need to.

The corby store is really quite small and you can barely move in there some days. Its riotous on other days!

Packs of 400g mince for £1. Catering size bags of tea £5. It really is pick of the draw, but usually theres something you think "omfg" to.

Last time I went it was 12 cans of Heinz Mushroom Soup for £1.

Shame I hate mushrooms Could have lived like a (soup-filled) king!

Yes i go to Tankesley or Middleton stores. Its great and im glad they restrict the criteria as letting just the general public in would be riotous. At the moment its civil and courious shoppers due to such restriction.

"Life changing"? Oh come on. It might be handy for a few people but that's going way too far!

A few salty people in this thread.

Now where did I put that application to the police force?!

Have you ever been? No. well shh.

I don't think you are selling this very well telling people to shh

We shop at the Barnsley one...I personally think its great what you get for £60-£70 in comparison to say Asda or Morrisons is unreal. I would never buy meat from Morrisons as its atleast double the price.

The only downside is sometimes you go and the selection is limited, the use by/best before date is often short.

But like I said I think you would be crazy not to go if you qualify...makes other supermarkets seem ridiculously expensive.

​Have you spent three days cycling around The Temples of Ankor? Looked down up NYC from the top of the World Trade Centre? Opened your tent to be greated by a view of the summits of the snow capped Andes all around you? Taken a boat ride down the Amazon? Skydived over a glacial fed lake with volcanoes in the background?

They were all great experiences, but were they "life changing"? Nope. So I don't think going shopping in grimsby or barnsley is going to be somehow. But hey if you've done these too then fine. But if it's a no? Well shh. You need to get out more!

Seems mental that some of this couldn't go to food banks etc - seems to be massive amounts of cash spent by people who have large disposable incomes already... boasting about saving £50 per week on shopping when some folks don't have this...

No heat no cold as this is another members only shop. We have been fortunate enough to shop at the CS ever since it was known as Marrens at Tankersley. It is now virtually a superstore. There really is bargains galore of 'surplus products' but beware, just because it deals in 'surplus products' doesn't mean it's all cheap. Some alcoholic drinks seem quite expensive for example, but other stuff is ridiculously cheap. You have to know your supermarket prices. As for six yogurts for a £1, Heron regularly do them at this price. They often even have freebies like bread. They are now charitable too as they have set up two 'Community Shops' for the less fortunate in disadvantaged communities. At the moment one is in Goldthorpe, the other in London. According to the CS blurb they are saving 30,000 tonnes of food going to waste. Apparently there are currently 270,000 tonnes of edible food in the supply chain that could be redistributed to feed people. They are tied in with a Tesco & Fareshare & have generated nearly £750,000 of charitable funds that have been donated to charity. It is obviously very profitable & growing. There is a very successful Internet company called Approved Food where we can all buy from - internet only tho'. By the way if you clear your fridge & freezer out regularly because the sell by date or best before date is up - don't apply. Non fussy, realistic, bargain shoppers only please.
