If you can get a card its good. Its a food disposal outlet the items are reduced as they are surplus to requirements from either the manufactor or retailer. some will be rejects ie yogurs where the top is not on right the company log is in the middle of the pot. Or the yogurs is over the prescribed wieght . Very little of the items are out of date if they are they are clearly marked its a good place but you can only buy what is in ie one week they may have lots of pizas next week they wont have any if you can get a card then go for it .

Company shop also have on a very regular supply, Crawshaws meat. Very good butchers!
At a fraction of the normal cost.
As for out of date stuff. Sometimes they have a trolley as you leave the tills, where the food is free!!
This only applies to tinned and jarred things.
Sure deoderants are only 29p for a fullsize aerosol.
Bargains galore!!
I have saved literally 1000's of pounds!!
Can't get better than that can it?!

I have a friend who has a card and she takens me sometimes. You can get some terrific bargains, but you never know what's going to be in stock. Last time I went I got some Waitrose microwavable fresh salmon portions for half price - ma-in-law loves it and it freezes, so I stocked up.

I also succumbed to some of that lovely M & S extra thick double cream for 10p a pot! Some for me and some for the neighbours - yum, yum.

When our daughter was starting to eat solids, I used to make vegetable purees, until I discovered the Company Shop. It was a bit pot luck as to what what available on any visit, but they regularly had large jars of Heinz Organic Baby food, at 10p each. I used to buy them by the trayful - they was still typically 6 months of sell by date left, so no problems there.

I went with a friend once and bought a 4-litre tub of black cherry flavoured yogurt ice cream. Can't remember the price, but I know it was very very cheap, and it was one of the most gorgeous ice creams I have ever had, Luuuvvvveeeerrrrrrlllllyyyyy!

....It's a bit pot luck what they have in sometimes, but what they stock is good value for money.
Consider the price of getting there and back, as it's a bit out of the way.
You might want to try (Forget the name of the place, it's next to Matalan on Parkway). Prices are really good in there.

I have a card to get in tot he company shop. It is great especially on tuesdays and fridays (delivery days). I have had some really good bargains from their, a bag of 15 rolo eggs (best before april 0 for 1 pound, a box of smarties (24) for 2.50, large joints of beef for 3 pounds..... The waitrose and Marks and spencers food is at such bargain price, even if it is close to the best before date, most of the stuff is freezable.
You have to work in the public sector (I think ). I hope you manage to get a card I would be lost without mine.

I went to join today but they have changed their regerstering process. Now you have to go through your emplyers HR, my employer (NHS) said they won't be doing this as they have enough of their own work to do and have not heard from the company shop. The company said I need to do it by post, so anyone else wanting to join I suggest calling (01226 748324) before you go for information
