Poundland opened last month

The drink will cost £2 and be sold faithfully in traditional glass bottles.

The bargain shop controversially opened on Princes Street just over two weeks ago.

But the discount shop defended their position with an tongue-in-cheek advert on the front of their shop ahead of opening to say they were "supporting high streets while others leave."
