Poundland to launch online delivery as part of ‘biggest ever transformation’

Poundland could delay its response to the CMA

Value retailer Poundland is set to launch its first-ever online delivery service and revamp its store estate as part of a new transformation programme.

As part of what Poundland called “the biggest transformation programme in its history”, it said it would begin trialling a home delivery service from early next year.

The discount retailer also said it would be revamping its estate, splitting stores into three types: ‘destination’; ‘core’; and ‘convenience’. 

Poundland said destination stores would carry the “fullest range of products” including food, homeware, clothing and health and beauty, while convenience stores would cater to “grab-and-go easy shopping”.
