This is one of those places that you go in to have a look around and come out with loads of stuff!

This area of Derby is known as St Luke's/Stockbrook, I.C. Discounts can found on Upper Boundary Road which is just off Uttoxeter New Road (A516).
Sometimes parking is a bit tight outside so best to park on Arundel Street which is just around the corner from I.C. Discounts.
You have to be over 16 to shop here. They have baskets and trolleys but as the aisles are quite narrow its best not to use one!
Some of the sweets are near to their best before dates which is why they are cheap, these are clearly labelled as such.
