Poundland yet to reach deal with 15 Wilko store landlords


Poundland has not yet reached an agreement with the landlords of more than 15 former Wilko sites, which it had intended to reopen under its own brand.

The discounter has been renegotiating terms with former Wilko landlords to line up back-to-back rent deals on the 71 stores it made a deal for in August.

However, according to The Grocer, Poundland has yet to agree a deal for 15 of the units, for a range of reasons including landlords not engaging with the retailer or aerated concrete being present in the building.
