Quality products under a pound               

Work with us...

Started in 2001, a family run business, 99p Stores is the UK’s second largest single price point retailer, with over 220 stores nationwide and 2 million customers every week.

We pride ourselves on a refreshingly different approach – everything instore is 99p or less - from everyday grocery, snacks and drinks to stylish homewares, essential DIY tools, stationery, kids toys, health, beauty and household products plus more – it’s this that makes us one of the UK’s favourite places to shop.

We appreciate the strain many people can face when budgeting, and the need to make the most out of every penny. Our prices are consistently low all-year round. We don’t need to rely on promotions because our customers can always rely on the best value products and biggest brands from our stores.

And with more than 30 NEW stores opening every year, were expanding and bringing the 99p Stores shopping experience to more customers and families across the UK.
