Poundland is a staple high-street store which sells everything from food to stationery to kitchen utensils. Founded in 1990, there are now more than 800 stores in the UK and the Republic of Ireland, offering household brands at discounted prices. 45 new stores are set to be opening within the next year.

Poundland is opening 10 new stores in the run-up to Christmas as it brings more products and variety to customers across the UK and Ireland.

The new stores will employ more than 280 colleagues, including 160-plus in the UK.

The shops will sell a wide variety of items including clothing and homeware, as well as a frozen food aisle.

In an investment of more than £15million, the first 10 stores will be opening within the next month, while the remaining 35 will open within the next year.

Poundlands’ Channel 4 documentary “Inside Poundland: Secrets from the Shop Floor” is set to air next month following the retailer’s plans including new stores, relocations, refits and more products.

All new stores will have PEP&CO clothing and homeware ranges and selected stores will also be part of the chilled and frozen food rollout, which will have reached 119 Poundland stores by Christmas.

The next stores which are due to open on December 5 include Grantham, St Augustin Retail Park, Lincolnshire, Ashton-under-Lyne, Warrington Street, Greater Manchester (relocation), Sutton-in-Ashfield Retail Park, Nottinghamshire, and Dunganon, The Oaks Shopping Centre.

The Lincolnshire, Greater Manchester and Nottinghamshire stores will all include the new chilled and frozen food range.

Poundland will also be opening in North Wales, Colwyn Bay, Sea View Road, but the opening date is yet to be confirmed by the retailer.

Poundland managing director Barry Williams said: “Poundland is going through the biggest transformation in our history and as part of that we’ve got ambitious plans to open new stores across the country where we can be a vital part of the retail community.

“We’ve broadened our ranges in groceries and household products and we’ve introduced PEP&CO clothing and homeware which means our customers can buy more of what they need under one roof.

“We aim to bring amazing value to our customers every day and are proud to be playing our part in keeping our town centres and retail parks alive and making them places where people want to shop.”

The retailer is working hard through the pandemic to ensure its customers and staff are staying safe while shopping.

Poundland has installed barrier screens at checkouts and stores are deep cleaned throughout the day.

Customers are asked to maintain social distancing while shopping and must adhere to the government guidelines and wear a face mask to help stop the spread of the virus.
