Poundland steps up ‘Local’ store plans

This follows the news that the discounter is to open two more of its Poundland Local stores in London and West Midlands.

Smaller than a typical Poundland, the compact stores have been designed to bring convenience shopping to areas not currently served by Poundland.

The retailer said the stores will offer customers a carefully selected range of products, whether they are buying lunch, doing a planned top-up shop or making an urgent last-minute buy.

The next Poundland Local store to open will be its first in London. It opens on Saturday 2 July in Clapham Junction, London. It will be its first at a high traffic transport hub and will be designed so customers can check-out quickly and easily.

That will be followed this summer by the first Poundland Local store in the West Midlands, at Boldmere Road, Sutton Coldfield.

Poundland Local stores typically employ around 12 colleagues. The new stores will offer items from Poundland’s core range including groceries, snacks, household products, health and beauty and batteries.

Customers will also find items they would expect in a convenience store including fresh fruit and vegetables, chilled and frozen food, bread and morning goods, hot pies and pastries, nappies and formula milk, beers, wines and spirits.

Poundland transformation and retail director, Austin Cooke, said: “Each of the new stores will have a range of items tailored to suit the needs of customers in each neighbourhood, whether they live or work locally.”

The Poundland Local format was unveiled in May 2021, with four convenience stores in Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire.
