I used to frequent the (old, smaller than the current Poundland MEGASTORE) one in Wood Green when I first moved to London and had shit all money. It was kinda incredible, the staff would basically dump the stock in the middle of the shop and the semi-feral locals would pounce on it.

Unless there are actually large swathes of people like that in London, I've not really been there before. (Starting to sound like Bamnan now LOL)
