It used to be the case that you knew exactly what you were getting when it came to Poundland – really shitty products that would only cost you a pound.

Unfortunately though, the goalposts have shifted in this post-Brexit environment, and shoppers have started to discover items worth more than a pound on the shelves of their local Poundland and they are not happy in the slightest. Some of the new items include Johnson’s Bedtime Baby Oil for £1.50, Surf Fragrance Release washing liquid for £3, and Dairy Box chocolates for £4.

What the hell? Why does Poundworld suddenly have stuff that's not £1 all over its shelves???

How come some stuff in Poundland isn't £1 any more? Brexit?!

"OMG, it's only £2!"
Fuck off Poundland! 🙄

I think Poundland need to rename themselves, it's not longer a true pound land shop with so many items now above £1.

Yeah, you can’t really blame them though can you? I mean it’s called Poundland right? Everything should be a goddamn pound, not more, even if it is labelled in a ‘manager’s choice’ section or whatever (that’s how they’re getting around it apparently). Just a joke really.
Poundland are trying to justify it by saying that the new prices were brought in as a result of customer feedback in order to give everyone even more value, but surely keeping everything at a pound would provide the “most value”. Just saying.
For more Poundland, check out these cheap ass vibrators you can pick up there. Nice.
