Offerssupermarket.co.uk uniquely offers a service which searches for any item that site user cannot find themselves online, as well as providing them with ten of the best deals on a variety of products.

Eve Atkins, founder of Offers Supermarket, has said,

We conducted this research based on one of the sites main concepts, which offers consumers the top 10 best products available at any given time. I think it will be interesting to look back in a decade and see which fashion must haves have turned into a fashion shouldnt have.

She continued,

Fashion has a tendency to repeat itself, so perhaps in 10 years time the sites top 10 list will look very similar to how it would have down in the 70s!
