"good prices - good service - professional layout"
"Well yes, they would wouldn't they. Poundland are a shoddy company with their self service checkouts and people shouldn't use them. Ask for a discount for doing so as you are paying for items to be discharged through a real checkout in the price. Do these companies think we are stupid I wonder. Perhaps most are, and do not care about each one of those awful self service checkouts representing someone out of a job. Even Aldi do not have self service checkouts.....yet."
"The store at Hempstead valley Gillingham only had self service checkouts working at the time of my visit on Saturday 26/05 18. When they decided to open an assistant checkout they allowed people from the back of the que to be served first without challenge. The person in charge took no notice even when chalenged by me,poor service Poundland."
"They have mostly self service checkouts for goodness sake. At the same time they do not offer discounts for using them. Really? Stay away is my advice."
"Poundland is a nasty company introducing self service to most of their stores. I no longer use them for this reason. Serve myself? Are they serious? Seems they are. Days numbered I think, in the long term. Try Pound Store instead. Wonderful variety of items and also food goods. PLUS...no self service!! A new one has opened in Dover, Biggin Street."
"The Poundland, Dover store is a disgrace. Why? They introduced self service checkouts that cause mayhem for all concerned. Do not use them. Are you aware that the price of paying someone to work a checkout is factored in to every single item you buy? Not to mention the fact that every single one of them represents somebody out of work. Then why use self service? If you MUST, then insist on a discount for doing so. On a brighter note there is a NEW Pound Saver store opened in Biggin Street. USE it!!"
"Five stars? Because your children liked the gummy pizza? Come on. What about the other stuff in there? Gummy pizza is so bad for them!!"
"All the children like the gummy pizza"
"Okay, so let's clear this up. Poundland do not sell clothes. Ok. Sometimes they have socks and one or two other items of cheap Chinese manufacture. Mostly one gets ripped off in Poundland like any other store."
"The shop is good value and it's now got pep and co,the price of clothes very competitive"
"Dreadful,dreadful self service checkouts!! No more for me thank you. Why have you done this? Will you offer discounts for using them. Tch tch."
"Had good customer service and was helpful."
"brilliant service fast delivary will deffo use again"
"Shocking company all round. Nasty quality goods, some food items not too bad. AWFUL self service. Don't use them. Used to be not too bad before self service."
"Wandsworth poundland is great you can buy tools, to cooking untensils, garding and foods which is really amazing for price and quality."
"Four stars? Because you found paperclips you wanted? Are you serious? Really. Tch,tch."
"Dreadful stores now with all their self service checkouts and long queues. It is the same whatever town you are in. At least there was once the 99p group alternative. There are other stores, you just got to look around."
"Got some quality paperclips. Top notch."
"always something you need,top brands at reasonable prices,store location easy to find in each town,caters for all walks of live"
"This is about Dover, Kent, Poundland. Have you ever been in there? If so you will have noticed that they have introduced self service checkouts. This has, at the same time, introduced long queues, whilst staff stand around watching customers fuming. What an insult to us all. It seems that people do not understand that stores factor in the cost of checkout staff in every single item you buy, so why use self service checkouts. If people must then insist on discounts for doing so. If you carry on doing so stores will eventually replace all staffed checkouts. Long queues, frayed tempers, the elderly and vulnerable not being able to cope, to name but a few results. People will then ask "But why have they done this. It's a nightmare". Folks, do not put up with it. Say "no thank you, I wish to be served by a human". Not only this but remember that every single self service checkout represents someone out of a job. Give them an inch and they will for certain take a mile."
