Teesside will soon be able to boast the UK’s biggest and best Poundland store set to open at the end of this month.
On Saturday February 26, the 19,000 square foot store – more than four times the size of an average Poundland store will welcome customers for a new shopping experience.
It comes just days after the retail giant opened a huge branch in Nottingham, thought to be among the biggest in the UK.
The sparkling premises at Poundland Teesside Park will have two huge floors with a large PEP&CO clothing and home department. The company have become one of the top 20 clothing retailers in the UK in less than seven years. At Teesside Park shoppers will find lots of changing rooms so they can try before buying. Their home department will include the latest 2022 ranges, including new kitchen storage options, bathroom accessories and soft furnishings. There will also be a range of Silentnight bedding and a selection of Addis homeware.
Poundland will offer a range of small domestic appliances and customers will be able to choose from a broad selection of small domestic appliances from Russell Hobbs, such as toasters, kettles and irons.
Colourful displays, larger aisles, elevators, digital signage, lightboxes, mannequins and supermarket style belted check outs will all contribute to a unique shopping experience. What’s more, alongside chilled and frozen food, fresh fruit and vegetables will be on sale along with beers, wines and spirits.
The range of health and beauty products will include a dedicated Rimmel cosmetics display, differing from smaller high-street branches of Poundland.
Austin Cooke, Poundland’s retail and transformation director, said: “We’re looking forward to bringing the best Poundland in Britain to Teesside.
“Our first store on this scale – in Nottingham –wowed customers who couldn’t believe how amazing the newest and best version of Poundland was, and we can’t wait to bring the same wow experience and range to the North-East.”
Poundland’s new Teesside Park store will be formally opened on Saturday February 26 at 8.00am by The Worshipful, the Mayor of Stockton-on-Tees, Councillor Kevin Faulks.
Poundland Teesside Park will be staffed by 65 full and part-time colleagues – and to top it all visitors can enjoy a takeaway coffee from a Lavazza self-serve bar, and snacks and pastries from the Poundbakery.
