Poundland set for Jolly Sailor Retail Park

Wednesday, 26th November 2014

EUROPE’S biggest single price discount retailer, Poundland is to open a store at Jolly Sailor Retail Park.

A planning application was submitted to Tamworth Borough Council on 19th November by the company, requesting permission for new signs at the front of their new store which is to be in the unit formerly occupied by Dreams.

The company currently has a store within Ankerside Shopping Centre which has already been expanded since it’s opening.  It is believed at this time that this store is to remain open.

Poundland opened their first store in 1990 which was just up the road in Burton upon Trent.  They now stock a range of more than 3000 items, each offered for sale at only £1 each.

The company now have more than 500 stores nationwide and earlier this year won ‘Variety Discounter of the Year’ for the second consecutive year at the Grocer Gold Awards.
