Family-owned single price retailer Poundworld opens its new store in Bradley Stoke at 10am today (Thursday 14th June), a day earlier than previously planned.

The new Poundworld store at the Willow Brook Centre will help cost conscious shoppers beat the recession by offering a ‘value’ alternative to other high street retailers.

With massive savings on leading brands such as Cadbury’s, Coca Cola and Johnson’s, the huge store offers over 5,000 products for the purse friendly price of £1. The vast range includes household essentials, textiles, toiletries and groceries, making it ideal for local shoppers looking to cut the cost of their everyday shop.

Chris Edwards Junior, Trading Director at Poundworld, said:

“We’re really delighted to be opening our first store in Bradley Stoke, creating 30 new jobs for the area. Busy shoppers can take advantage of the great location and free parking in order to stock up on our fantastic offers and brands.”

“We look forward to welcoming customers through our doors and we hope our new store will prove a big hit with savvy shoppers in Bradley Stoke.”

Poundworld plans to help more shoppers in the UK minimise the cost of everyday living by opening a further 25 stores by the end of 2012. Yorkshire-based, Poundworld was founded in 1997 and has over 160 stores across the UK.

Poundworld will be opening at the Willow Brook Centre in Bradley Stoke in mid-June bringing up to 20 new jobs to the town.

Poundworld will be stocking thousands of items, including well-known brands, at an unbeatable price – £1.

The popular retailer will be located in the former 8,000 sq. ft. Peacocks unit facing the Willow Brook Centre car park that has over 1,000 spaces and free parking.

Willow Brook Centre Manager Scott Lahive said:

“We’re delighted to welcome Poundworld to the Willow Brook Centre in the heart of Bradley Stoke. We believe it will be a very popular store with our regular shoppers.”

“It’s less than three months since Peacocks ceased trading and Poundworld restores the centre to 100% retail occupancy. Demand from retailers remains strong proving the on-going success of the centre.”

Peacocks store, Bradley Stoke, Bristol.Poundworld already has one store in Bristol – at the Avon Meads Retail Park in St. Philips.

The former Peacocks unit that Poundworld is taking over closed on 22nd February 2012 with the loss of 16 jobs.

The fashion group had been placed into administration a month earlier after failing to restructure debts amounting to £240m.

The Bradley Stoke store was one of 224 stores around the country that ceased trading when the firm was eventually sold to Edinburgh Woollen Mill.

The Willow Brook Centre announced yesterday that Simpson’s fish & chip shop is to close on Saturday (26th May) but said it was confident of finding a replacement food operator “very soon”.
