What Do You Think of B&M?

Ask a Question

I was in there fairly early this morning when it was quiet and it really is a bargain-hunters dream. Lots of toys on 2 for £20 and great deals on food and home as usual, £15 Yankee candles etc. I could have literally done all my Christmas shopping in one go!

Please tell me I'm not the only one who loves it?!

It's good and there's a lot of bargains to be found, but I will always miss Woolies.

Sorry but I had a nightmare in one today. As I didn’t buy anything I needed to get out but it is close on impossible as you can only get out through the open till aisles and they are so thin you can’t get pass people, slight panic attack.

I've been in that situation before, it does get ridiculous during busy times, but quite pleasant at 9:30am on a Wednesday!

I regularly take a look when I’m in the bigger store. They usually Have good seasonal displays. I think for bargains you’d get more in homeBargains

Never heard of heron foods but I've looked it up and sadly don't have one near us. Food Warehouse is another good one though, part of Iceland.

I think I prefer home bargains but B&M is also very good. Had some decent bargains in both.

I usually visit one if I’m nearby, but I prefer Home Bargains. I have found some great bargains in the past but it can be hit and miss, depending on the branch

I like Home Bargains too but they don't have anywhere near as much variety of products as B&M, I guess it does depend on your branch.

I like it for the occasional stuff, but would rather look for the toys in Home Bargains which are always on a great offer. I think lots of the toys in HB come from argos.

My local one isn't great, its like a pound shop, tatty and outdated. I know other stores are better, ours doesnt have a freezer section. The only items i think are good quality and value are the kids games and furniture

Great for a select few things for sure. Though the massive bargains that get advertised are never available.

I have a love/hate relationship with them. I think they’re great and can run a mock in them! But the problem is it’s always things I don’t actually need? The home stuff is lovely for the price but I really don’t need any of it so try and stay clear 🙈
