I bought beckham intimate just about last week,great offers in dealz,i was on my way in there for three packs of facial wipes 3 packs for 1.49!!!! I get all my beauty stuff in there,well bar the make up.But ive tried their rimmel eyeshadows and they are good no problems with them at all.Picked up a few other essentail bits and bobs,really worked out very cheap.
If it wasnt for pennys,dealz and lidls/aldi i dont know where i would be!!!

Hmmm, I shopped a few time in Dealz and although they do have a very wide range of items from food to bathroom items etc, you really do get what you pay for. The Coke and Chocolate tasted quite different from the branded stuff, which explains the strange writing and different volumes on the packaging. Foreign markets may not be to everyone's taste. Plus the shower gel and body sprays were just vile-smelling cheap tat, which I was surprised by as I always got decent bathroom items in Lidl or Aldi. But at the end of the day, the stuff there is only 1euro50cent so if you are on a tight budget it might come in handy but if you are looking for quality as well, this isnt really the place, its a glorified tatty pound shop..

They are hardly trying to pretend they are anything else.

Comparing them to Aldi or Lidl is not comparing like with like.

Thanks for pointing out the part I've bolded , as most normal people are on a tight budget.
Your post comes across as very snobbish tbh.

You're talking utter crap. The cans of Coke and food items taste identical to the sane ones that your but in tesco. The reason for the different volumes and number of items per pack is because most of the big name brands specifically produce items for dealz. I tried the shower gel and had no issues with any of them and all the known brands are identical to what's in Tesco and the like

Much of what you say is simply not true. Just like any other shop the buyer needs to be beware when you go into Dealz. There are a huge amount of Bargains with proper brands. There are some items that are average value and there are items that you need to avoid. The same could be said of Tesco. Some of their own branded stuff isn't great.

It would take too long to go down through the list of branded stuff that's on sale in dealz just like anywhere else. Where I will point out you get value for money is their electronic items Like HDMI cables and various extension leads.

You can also pick up the odd good book cheap. Dog treats are also great at 1.49 when they're close to 2.49 elsewhere when they're not on offer. Same with Monster munch, usually 80c cheaper than Dunnes for the same product.

They're called dealz because we don't have pounds in this country, but they're basically a poundstore, but one that's a cut above the rest generally.

Dealz in blanch last week had Original Source shower gel for 1.49, same one in tesco and boots for 2.79.
They also have sure and right guard as well, so I dunno what shower gel or body sprays you were looking at, but if you looked closer you would see branded items.

Its interesting that they've deviated from the "everything is exactly the same price" model here, which I believe they still haven't in the UK. May be an experiment with a smaller market to see if it works.
