What is the name of the pound shops always referred to on here?

Found 10th Apr 2010
I am off to try and find a pound shop - I know there are none very local to me. I need to find some bits and pieces to use in my childrens party bags for their party.

Can anyone tell me the official name of this sort of shop - I KNOW I have no Home Bargains round here (so sad) but trying to locate pound shop ish stores. Any ideas? Thanks

thanks v much for this - off to try and find one this morning

asda do loads of party stuff and its just as cheap

Most towns & cities also have independant bargain shops. I don't know where you are but the North of England is definately blessed with a lot more of these type of shops than the South

Tesco's do stuff too!

B&M are also cheap. Hawkins Bazzaar do lots of kids party toys cheaply too.

Although to be honest the best party bag/ gift my son got was a book that the birthday boy had signed thanking him for coming to his party. This was much better than the usual tat you get in party bags and you can get books for £1 ish each from the works etc.
