Poundland is embarking on the “biggest transformation of its store estate” yet, which will see 50 stores open, expand or relocate across the UK before the end of September 2023. 


New stores will add around half a million square feet in retail space, as well as create approximately 750 to 800 new jobs.

Britain’s biggest Poundland will also open in Scotland. The 18,380 sq ft store at Glasgow Crown Street is set to open in March.

The value retailer plans to relocate stores in Newport, Llantrisant and Rotherham in February and March, and open full-sized stores in Aldershot and Castle Bromwich. A new Poundland Local convenience store will also open in East Dulwich, London.

The transformation programme aims to support Poundland’s range expansion in recent years as it adds new categories including clothing, homewares and chilled and frozen food to its offer. 

Poundland managing director Barry Williams said: “We know how customers appreciate the effort we’ve made in the last few years to transform our offer, offering them more of what they want to buy, week in, week out.

“That transformation means we have to step up our search for the best locations to bring the best of Poundland to customers across the UK and that’s precisely what we’ll do in 2023.

“We will continue to work hard to find the right locations that suit the range of Poundland formats we now offer – from small neighbourhood convenience stores to our large destination stores.”
