Budget chain Poundstretcher has been revealed as the “value retailer” that will be opening soon in Bradley Stoke’s new town centre.
A press release put out today (Friday) by the Willow Brook Centre says the “UK’s original value store” is due to open on Friday 10th December.
The Journal understands that the firm will be occupying unit 6 of the retail terrace, to the right of the Pets at Home store.
“Opening Soon” signs first appeared on the unit on Wednesday 4th August along with similar signage on units 5, 6 & 7 in the Town Square, unit 7 in the mall and unit 1 in the retail terrace.
The Journal later revealed that a Harvester restaurant would be taking the Town Square units, while Boots would be opening a store and regional office in unit 1 of the retail terrace.
Mall unit 7 (to the right of Card Factory) is to be occupied by Ocean estate agents, who will be transferring their business from Baileys Court.
The new Poundstretcher store will bring “over 15 new jobs” to Bradley Stoke and offer customers a range of products that will include electronics, gardening, homewares and bedding.
A company spokesperson said:
“Work will commence shortly on the new store. We are really looking forward to opening and welcoming the people of Bradley Stoke through our doors.”
“We offer great value in these tough economic times, with an extensive range of products.”
Willow Brook Centre Manager Scott Lahive said:
“We’re delighted to welcome Poundstretcher to Willow Brook Centre in the heart of Bradley Stoke. We believe it will be a very popular store with our regular shoppers, and will bring new visitors too.”
“It’s great news all round.”
