Just as the name is
It's generally a very tiny store. However, there are really quite a variety of food.
I do not recommend you to go for their snacks though, as many of them as almost the same price as supermarkets, go for the ones that are a lot cheaper.
My favourite thing to buy from them though is their drinks. Bottled drinks at $1? GRAB!
Their shampoo and conditioner are cheaper than most supermarkets, just a heads up.
However, the store is generally extremely messy and cramped, which makes it really hard to move around. The staff is rude as well, which makes the dollars you saved not all that worth it really.
Cheap and Convenient!
The one i frequent is either at 888 plaza or at Causeway Point Shopping Centre. It is like a small supermarket selling products at rock bottom prices. And when i say rock bottom, I really mean it. A can of drink can cost you $0.90 only.
All outlets sell the same usual products and the knick knacks. There are many products ranging from toiletries to snacks. I believe all outlets will make you feel like the shop can do better with a bigger square foot because the concept is all the same, tall shelves, all stuffed with products and there is really not much walking space.
The services are down to the minimum so do not expect much. When you go in, just take what ever you need and go.
Call me cheapo if you want buy this is where I like to buy my canned drinks
I was sitting in the food court finishing my dinner. Perhaps it's the MSG in the food that's making me thirsty and dying for a drink. I peeked over at the drinks counter and to my dismay, the queue was horribly long. Why would people pay $1.30-$1.60 for a canned drink and yet have to queue?
I grabbed my backpack, strolled out of the food court, and arrived at ValuDollar shop, just 20 meters away. Grabbed a can of coke from the fridge, paid 60 cents for it and left a happy man. No doubt there's no ice here but you're only paying less than half the price!
That's the usual routine and my main purpose for visiting ValuDollar shop. Have tried walking around in the shop but it was too cramped and messy, with goods and products displayed high up to the ceiling and everywhere. Gives me a headache just to search for a product so I think I'll rather stick to the can drinks for now, where the fridge is just right at the entrance.
Don't expect much
Drinks, snacks, stationery and even perfumes with ridiculosly low prices, who wouldn't be attracted to this shop? With canned drinks at only 60cents each it has to be a great buy. The shop is rather cramped and the service is still alright.
I've once bought a huge packet of looney tunes wet tissue which only cost me $1.05 and it was a total waste. The material is so stiff and thin, more like 'wet paper' and the soap was useless and sticky. The waffle biscuits i bought was either crushed or turned soft. It was a huge disappointment, then again what could i expect with such prices.
I will only purchase their canned drinks, no confidence in the rest of their items. I'd rather top up for something more reliable.
Why go to other places if we can get the same thing at cheaper prices here?
I remember when i was young, i never failed to visit this shop to get a $1 bottle of pink dolphin to quench my thirst. It was cheaper to get here than at other supermarkets so over time, we saved quite a bit.
They sell a lot of food items very cheaply, and besides that, they also sell basic necessities at cheap prices. The items are imported from overseas like thailand etc, which explains the cheap prices.
Overall a great place to get your stuff at if you don't mind the quality.
Really value for your dollar
If shops had personalities, this store be friends from the same secondary school as ABC Shop and Daiso. They would visit heartland malls and make themselves comfortable with their stay, delighting every customer their way.
Value Dollar is a place really value for your dollar.
You pretty much can stock up a new apartment here. They have small cupboards and food and drinks and stationary and everything enough to stock a small home for war. And the prices are good enough to get a nod from your local auntie. The only flipside is that they do not recognize the need to plant themselves in front of my place so I can stuff myself to death economically everyday.
Cheap necessities and snacks!
I frequent ValuDollar often, mainly because I am but a poor student and buying snacks often from other supermarkets can be a little heavy on the wallet.
ValuDollar provides snacks sold at extremely affordable prices as compared to the prices of similar items sold in local supermarkets. The snacks usually taste the same as their counterparts sold in such local supermarkets, and the lower prices at ValuDollar certainly make ValuDollar a great place to pick up affordable snacks.
However, the taste of certain chocolate products may vary a little from the ones usually sold in local supermarkets, as such products may have come from a different manufacturer.
Although local supermarkets still stock a greater variety of items as compared to ValuDollar, I have found that ValuDollar in fact sells some snacks that even local supermarkets do not offer, so such snacks are definitely worth the buy, especially since their prices are extremely low.
The $1 shop!
That's the nickname that my friends and I gave the Valudollar store. And it's true.
You can get things here for insanely low prices. A coke can cost as low as $0.60 here, when 7/11 sells it at $1. Doesn't seem like a lot? Try multiplying it by a thousand. That's how much the latter makes in a month or so. However, do take note of the expiry dates on the cans - they are notorious for selling products that have only about a week or two of shelf life left.
I have no complaints about the store so far. Despite being of a lower price, quality of produce remains pretty standard, and it's a great place for you to buy in bulk. Just remember that Singaporeans are a 'kiasu' bunch. Be prepared to wait in line for 5 mins just to check out.
Stays true to being selling the cheapest goods.
I love coming to ValuDollar to purchase snacks and drinks, because everything that is sold here is just so CHEAP! Sometimes nicknamed as "the $1 shop", there is nothing you can find here that is cheaper outside. If you do, report it with evidence to the staff and you'll get a full refund. That is how confident ValuDollar is of their lowest prices.
What I really like about ValuDollar as well is that they sometimes sell things that you cannot find at any other convenience store or supermarket. For example, ValuDollar sells Ovaltine packets. When I first saw it, i was really excited because I love Ovaltine, and I just had to purchase it. The only problem is that if their products do not sell, they remove them from the shelves eventually, and it's usually the 'rare' stuff like this that disappear after a certain period of time, so I got to make sure to stock up while it is still possible!
The bad thing about this place is that it is really cramp, and sometimes their top shelf can be really high, and you'll need to seek assistance, and even the staff will need ladders to reach them unless they are really tall. Also, most, otherwise all the ValuDollar outlets I've been too are really cramp, and when someone wants to cross your path, it can be quite a hassle.
Other than that, I don't think I'll ever stop dropping by ValuDollar because it's so efficient and worth the money! People who are on budget like me definitely need to 'befriend' this shop...!
