Daily Bargains reopening in King Street, South Shields, after six-month closure

A popular South Shields bargains shop is preparing to reopen this weekend after a six month closure due to a floor issue.

Daily Bargains, in King Street, has been closed for about six months, but will soon be ready to welcome customers back following some refurbishment work.

The shop, which specialises in selling foods and household goods at a discounted price, was forced to close after the building was deemed unsafe due to the joists rotting away and the floor caving in.

More than £45,000 has been spent on repairing the floor in preparation for the shop to re-open.

Manager Masum Mustafa said: “We play a vital part to the community. We have customers who shop with us that can’t afford certain foods from supermarkets and rely on us to buy treats. Parents who struggle love shopping with us as we save up to 50% for packed lunches for their kids for school.

"Especially during school holidays, when kids are off school, they shop with us to help with feeding their kids.”

He added: “We are very excited to get the business back open. As well as being relieved as it was also a tough period due to Covid.”

Daily Bargains will reopen its doors this Saturday (April 9) at 9am.
