dealz

Just munching here on my 170g toblerone from dealz and the items are similar to poundland.co.uk where all items are £1 but we here in the south have to pay 1.49 so converting items to sterling to euro from www.xe.com

£1 = euro 1.15 but we are paying 35cents in the difference so a big markup of approx 22%.

So if you are near the North buy in poundland

Most items were good like coffee , even fresh sandwiches and 4 cans of coke all 1.49 each even films and cds and books

VAT would make up a 4% difference straight off. Then there is the higher wages etc. I watched a program on pound world a while back. And believe me the way they treated their staff is not tolerated here.

They increased their standard VAT rate in the UK to 20% from 17.5% last year so the difference is just 1%.

Dropped in late yesterday in blanch - not so busy.

Ended up just buying a 1m HDMI cable and an IPad wetsuit type of case for 1.49 each and both seem quite good quality.

Took a look in today and it is a fine big shop. Lots of Haloween and Christmas stuff. Pretty good value, although some of the stock is on sale for 99c in the 99c Shop in the Maple Centre. Defo worth a visit

With yourself, with your daughter, with the umbrella or with the shop?

I think you already know the answer so i don't see the need for your smart ass question.

The steel bit that a finger can get caught in is sharper than a butter knife couple that with the spring action makes it a dangerous product.

If I knew the answer I wouldn't ask now would I?

If you hand a potentially dangerous object to your kid, you as parent are to blame.

Troll!!
If an adults/childs finger is sliced off by using an umbrella for the first time, i can assure you that legally it wouldn't be the parents who are liable.

Now that's the spirit! Nevermind personal responsibility - let's sue someone!

Now, back on topic...

Since when is an umbrella a potentially dangerous object hey?, in it's normal use

The products they sell should be fit for their purpose and that's not to take the finger off a child.
