With three floors of shopping, Jack's World/Jack's 99cent store has pretty much everything you might imagine you'd find at any typical 99 cent/discount store. But more of it, in a constantly changing array. It's got: food (dry goods, refrigerated & frozen), hardware, party supplies, hair accessories, seasonal decor, toiletries, luggage, bath supplies, kitchen ware, toys, electronics, etc. It's reliable for picking up basic household needs, and of course there's some tacky junk, but the real deals are the closeouts here. You never know what you'll find, but you can often get amazing discounts on brand-name stuff.??

I've always loved this place. I used to go here all the time when I worked on 34th Street many years ago. I'd come here for party supplies, office supplies, random snacks, etc.! At some point they added a third floor with some electronics and gourmet foods. They have a good selection of fancy oils, vinegars, salami and a decent selection of cheese and cold cuts. Totally not what I expected from Jack's. Needless to say those things are not 99 Cents but still priced cheaper than you'd find elsewhere.

The place is kept clean and reasonably organized, and they have a plethora of cashiers (some on each floor), so it's always quick to get out of there with your purchases. One tip: shop on the first floor first, because you can bring merchandise up to the second and third floors, but you can't pay for it there.

Jack's sometimes has awesome stock-up deals (Goody Color Collection bobby pins for $1) or high-end lotions for a decent price (L'Occitane for $10-15) but there is SO much trash. I avoid the first floor and only glance around the second floor.

I like the beauty selection on the third floor and they often have some cheap cookbooks up there too.

Food (other than soda) from Jack's just doesn't work for me. I'm sure that they can't be selling bad food, but I'm not interested in finding out.

Pros: great deals, cheap, good for throw-away household items

Cons: I can't eat food from here, I just can't.

I am forever humble to Jack's 99 Cent Store and Jack's World. I am a gourmet chef and the deals on the food products that Jack's carries Is extroadinary, especially the dog food that I make meals with for my family. The mexican made del monte and nestle products (which are made with pure mexican water) are not too shabby either. You can't pass up the great deals on "Montezuma's Revenge" brand bottled Mexican water...12 pk for.....$2.99 wow!! Such A Deal!!! It's bigger and better than Evian and Aquafina!!!! But you can't pass up the great deals on "Audiophile Quality" COBY radios and portable electronics. And we all know that COBY Is the "creme de la creme" of audio electronics... and not the cheap Junk that other brands pretend not to be. There Is no comparison...and where else can you grab such great deals like these....."Jack's 99 Cent stores....I am forever humble to ya'!!!

Pros: Everything About Jack's

Cons: None Whatsoever

For people who complain about the jack's product pricing, I guess why don't you just find something free in a dumpster. This store is great and have some good product that are very useful. I don't understand people who complain too much. If you don't want to shop at Jack's well go somewhere else.

I've been shopping @ jacks world for more than 15 years now. hands down, the best store for so many items. when i first started going there back in 1994 i swore it would be out of business or it was liquidating....not the case.

I always like to shop at Jack's 99 store because I have my card club and they give me the extra 5%. But the supervisory of the cashiers especially on Saturdays when I add money to my card club 99 Store never give me the receipt, ask your receipts of purchase forever.

In particular Madison 40st and the large image of a store are its employees and that the worst is in that shop employees in particular their supervisors are those who are engaged to give a good image to the store to meet customer way to the Customer returns are supervising people without education, having a bad attitude I listened shout their pockets, as if some animal, and behind the cashier as if the cashiers are some thief and are the same supervisors who give bad image, people should put with very good manners.
The bags smell very bad too. please

Is anonymous on drugs? Clean, well stock, bargain in very aisle. Also, the 32nd street has new daily bargains. Mass Transit provides quick, easy access. Go check it out.

New York City is one of the greatest places in the world to live. That being said, it is so f@#king expensive here that it?s important to find ways to stretch your money any way that you can. Jack?s 99? store is a great way to accomplish this. Conveniently located about ? an avenue block from Bryant Park It is easily reached on the 7 line of the metro that goes between Port Authority and Grand Central Station. You can expect to find items such as canned food, cooking utensils, greeting cards, general tools, candies, etc. As you can see, there is a little bit of everything. It may not always be the best quality, but you will never feel like you haven?t gotten your money?s worth.

What a find! I bought my daughter's wedding invitations there, and for well under $100 we had beautiful invitations that looked as though we had paid a fortune. Every time you go in there it is something different. Great for a browse or when you are looking for a gift. If only they had them in Australia!

Only a true New Yorker already knows about Jack's and the bargains you can find there. I have visited many stores before and none can compare to Jack's. The food selection varies and yes, it is safe to eat, the expiration dates are valid for consumption. This location behind the Midtown library off 5th is very clean and large, has alot of things you will need and don't need. <<<<>>> It now has 3 floors with the 1st being the 99 cent goodies, and Jack's World covering the other two. There are great deals up there as well, so don't miss out.

I was really impressed with this dollar store and I've been to alot of them. They have 2 floors filled with items. Everything on the first floor is 99cent and the 2 floor is priced a little above that. They is one of the first 99 cent store I found that actually sells food. I don't know if I would buy from though from a 99 cent store. I would be very carefull in looking at expiration dates. But other then that they have tons of stuff and its pretty organized.

This is a good 99cent store. They have a lot of name brand items. The store is big and clean which is a huge plus. THe staff is friendly. You should come in often because the inventory changes all the time.

I shop at Jack's every day on my way to work. Their selection is great and they are always getting in new merchandise. Their selection of frozen food is pretty good, and where else in Manhattan can you buy 2 1/2 dozen eggs for only 99 cents?

Finally a dollar store in Manhattan. Almost anything can be found at Jacks and the crowd that forms during lunch hour during the week proves it. I found a large spray water bottle, for of course $1.07 (includes tax). Those infamous China Town shoes are also on sale for a dollar. Really, almost anything your looking for can be found at Jacks and the price would not be able to be beat.

Just because its cheap is not always a bad thing. The store is huge and is a maze of odds and ends. They have everything from food to cosmetics to socks to knick-knacks. If you look around for a while you can find some really great buys. Best part of all. Everything is a buck.
