All Poundland articles

British discount variety retailer Poundland that sells the majority of items at £1. The first pilot store opened in December 1990 following numerous rejections by landlords who had reservations about allowing a single-price store to operate, fearing it could adversely affect the local competition. Poundland acquired closest rival 99p Stores in 2015, which left Poundworld as its closest competitor until it went bankrupt in 2018. Since 2018, Poundland has been the category killer of the pound shop format in the UK.
