Unless you see a specific offer that you really want to stock up on then no I wouldn't travel 45 mins.

It depends,i wouldn't say so,because the stuff they have changes a lot,so one time you might go and they have nothing that interests you,other times they have lots.

its just a junk shop, i would not go if it was 10 minutes away

Wouldnt go to Stroud to be honest

I regularly shop at HB's there are quite a lot of offers, household, food, toiletries, goodies, toys! As it's 45 away from you you should make it a once a week visit maybe and visit another shop that's nearby ie like your regular visit to Tesco for instance so it's worth the visit. Also make sure you are aware of prices of goods before you go in as you will get some bargains as it the sign says! Toilet cleaner 49p bleach 39p washing up liquid 49p wine is 2.99/3.99 crisps my god I get these for parties by the 100's cos they are quite cheap. Biscuits are cheaper than say some of the same brands I have seen in Morrisons! Milk UHT and it tastes nice is 49p for semi or skimmed. Cakes/Sweets - that's how I got fat, Haribo's at half price! The list goes on, my shop is quite small but if your shop is a good size there is even small furniture and bedding! I would say go and have a look!!!

Even then I would call first, because they dont have the same stuff in every shop

I love the shop

+1, they sell a lot of named brands aswell much cheaper than in tesco eg the haribos and pepsi wines, they sell baby food, the jars that are in asda for about 60p each they knock out for 19p but as pps have said they do rotate their stock quite often :thumbsup:

I go every week and always get bags full of stuff (most not needed but does get eaten or used - lol! I would recommend you making at least one trip to see what is available!

No, it's not very big. Stroud is rubbish as well. Definitely not worth it.

What makes you say Stroud is rubbish?

I work there. I have family from there. I live near there.

I KNOW it's rubbish.

I wouldn't travel. It is good to pop in if you are local and see what they have.
