Poundland opens TODAY in Princes Street: Here are some of the bargains you could find as part of their new expanded range
Poundland will open its new store in Princes Street at 9am today.
The store not only brings jobs and investment, it will be the first in the country to open with Poundland’s expanded range of products at simple prices.
The new ranges – with items selling from 50p to £5.00 – allow Poundland to deliver even more choice and value to customers across a wide range of groceries, health and beauty and homeware products.
Poundland’s investment in the new store on Princes Street will employ 30 people.
Austin Cooke, Poundland’s retail director, said: "We’re breathing new life into Princes Street and our experience as an anchor store in other cities across the country shows that we will be a magnet for shoppers.
"The response from Edinburgh customers since we announced the opening has been fantastic. They can’t wait to get their hands on the amazing value we bring and we look forward to welcoming them through our doors.
"The opening is particularly exciting as it marks another major step in our transformation from a single price retailer to a simple price retailer. It means we can stock a wider range of groceries, household and health and beauty products that people use every day."
Around three quarters of the items in store will still be at Poundland’s core £1 price point.
The new pricing structure allows Poundland to stock a wider range of products including:
Gingerbread/Orange Matchmakers for 75p
L’Oréal Elvive Fibrology shampoo for £2
Walkers Crisps Classic 24 packs for £3
Fairy Non-Bio Cold Wash for £4
Poundland attracts seven million shoppers a week to its stores across the UK.
The new Poundland Princes Street store will open at 9 am on Saturday, November 16th.
Since opening its first store in Burton-upon-Trent in 1990, Poundland, has built a network of over 850 stores in the UK and the Republic of Ireland, offering top brands and great quality own brand products that provide customers with amazing value every day.
