A new shop is opening soon where Dawsons used to be. Looks like it is all 9TP.

Yes, it's 90p+ Stores, "every penny counts"

So we're not posh enough for a £ shop are we?!!!

Looks like the marketing budget was 90p too. I mean, that lady's 'I'm a little teapot' routine is dreadful...

So in the place of the former Dawsons with a grand piano in the front window, we're going to have a shop with grand pieces of 90p tat. Come on Town Council/Vale, we're worth more than this! We don't need another shop selling bottles of bleach and cigarette lighters!

Am I missing something - I didn't think the Vale or Town Councils had any say over what sort of shop a private landlord rented his/her premises out to?

I have seen elsewhere that the lease is for a trial period of 3 months and another retailer has expresed an interest if it becomes available again so lets wait and see...

there's something about a pound shop that makes you want to buy things you otherwise wouldn't - i came out of one with 20 coathangers last time for some reason - plus a box of microwave popcorn.

at least it makes a change that a shop has opened in town, people are complaining that they are all shutting and then whine when one opens here. ok , its a cost cutter, so was wollies.

Has anyone been in there yet? It's actually really good - I popped in and thought their stuff was good quality. I was really surprised as it's not normally my sort of thing. Not sure about the name though :-)

Do you think a sex shop would be better!

I can't believe what your all moaning about, I thought it was great value and hey its got to be better having an open shop than another closed one.

I brought loads of little bits and I'm well chuffed.
