ONE lucky shopper has pocketed a transport worth £300 for just FIVE at Britain’s cheapest store where everything is 20p.

Steve Nelson, 62, launched The 20p Shop in Otley, West Yorkshire around five years ago – and it has grown in popularity ever since.

Shop assistant Sue McKie, 53, presented a basket of 25 goodies costing just £5 – including phone cases, headphones and cosmetics.

Had she shopped at high street shops or online giants, Sue’s transport could have cost her up to £296.41.

Sue spent 20p on a Twinkle Twinkle Little Star music book in The 20p Shop. If she had bought a similar book on Amazon, she could have shelled out £11.69.

And Sue only spent 20 pence on two phone cases. If she had bought Apple-branded cases, she could have lost £98.

Sue said: “There are always great deals here and I love it.

“We run a jewelry store in town, but I spend more time here because it’s busy and the regular customers are great.

“People come two or three times a day because the stock is constantly changing.

“You bought a hand sanitiser which was sold for £4.99 and this Monkey birthday card has a storer for £1.50 in it.”

Founder Steve said: “Everything in the store is 20p – it’s a level playing field.

“We were originally market traders, so everyone likes a bargain.

“With all the Pound Shops opening and some selling stuff for more than a pound, I thought why not a 20p shop?

“With the ongoing cost of living crisis, we’re aiming to get more products to help people manage their food budget.

“Packets of crisps always fly off the shelves when they arrive.

“We’re doing really well with the cards because they’re going to get books from somewhere else and we’re buying in bulk to get the prices.

“We get bankrupt shares and all sorts of stuff which we can then sell for 20p.”
