This is one of the stores where you can get stationary products. We visit it very often to find a deal for colouring books or toys for kids. Sometimes, they have lots of offers and it's the best time to go there. The prices are quite OK in comparison to the quality, but sometimes I can find cheaper products somewhere else. Assortment is quite diverse and you can find there items that are not available in other stores.
