Poundland To Open One Of Its Biggest Stores In West Yorkshire This Weekend

Poundland will open one of its biggest stores in West Yorkshire this coming Saturday, creating 31 new jobs in Pontefract in West Yorkshire when it welcomes its first customers this weekend. 

Families will be able to enjoy amazing value as the 15,000 sq ft unit opens at Baileygate Retail Park, Pontefract WF8 2LN from 8 am this Saturday 9 September 2023. 

The site was previously occupied by Poundstretcher, and has been closed for approximately three months. 

Shoppers will be able to enjoy more choices with the full Pep clothing range, plus chilled and frozen food, inside a fantastic-looking new store. 

Poundland has recruited extensively locally to put together their new team.

New colleagues are getting everything finalised to bring shoppers even more choice and value to help household budgets go further.

Pontefract will feature extended clothing ranges and more kidswear than it has ever offered alongside other family fashion. 

The Pep clothing offering is a huge part of the new Poundland with ranges available for the whole 

It will also offer everyday essentials such as groceries, drinks and snacks that shoppers love, as well as health and beauty, entertainment, stationery and craft ranges.

The new store in Pontefract has been designed for maximum convenience and to allow customers to do more of their shopping in a single trip.

It will join the growing number of Poundland stores, now across half of the portfolio, to sell chilled and frozen food, from desserts and ice-cream to ready meals and pies and from cooked meats to frozen vegetables. One of the big advantages of frozen food when household budgets are under pressure is that it enables customers to save money and reduce waste.

Poundland director of retail, Darren Kay, said: “We can’t wait to open our doors in Pontefract and we know from talking to customers that shoppers are looking forward to the opening of our new store.

“We’re working hard to make sure our new store will be a cracking example of the breadth of what we can offer in a convenient location.

“And just like all our stores, it will offer amazing value to customers looking to make their money go further.”

Over the last five years, Poundland has been undertaking a range revolution in its stores, adding whole new categories such as clothing, homewares, and chilled and frozen food giving customers an alternative to supermarkets.

As of today, over 500 Poundland stores offer a full clothing range and over 450 extended chilled and/or frozen food.

This new programme to revamp stores will help provide customers with the wider ranges they buy week-in, week-out.
