Since opening its first store in Burton-upon-Trent in 1990, Poundland has built a network of over 900 stores in the UK and the Republic of Ireland, offering top brands and great quality own-brand products, that provide customers with amazing value every day.
Nominated by Retail Week as Value Discounter of the Year 2019, it now has c.18,000 colleagues serving over seven million customers every week from Wick to Weymouth, Londonderry Lowestoft and Holyhead to Hastings.
Poundland offers thousands of quality products in store with over 1,000 well-known brands in shopping categories including fresh and frozen food, drinks, health and beauty, household, Pep&co Home, gardening, DIY, Pet, Stationery, Books, DVDs and Toys. Around nine in ten items at Poundland are available at its original £1 price point. Over the last 12 months, it has built out new ranges by introducing items from 50p up to £10 underpinned by the same philosophy of simplicity and amazing value.
Poundland also trades internationally through the Dealz brand with a building store base in both Poland and Spain. Within the UK it has also rolled out its fashion brand PEP&CO to approximately 300 of its larger stores. PEP&CO offers customers a full range of women’s, men’s and kids’ fashion and bringing a new style to Poundland with simple low pricing on family fashion that’s hard to find on local high streets. PEP&CO was nominated in the 2019 Retail Week Awards as Private Label of The Year.
In 2020, Poundland completed the acquisition of Fultons Foods to accelerate the rollout of its chilled and frozen food range and extend the distribution network to serve stores.
With well over 900 stores, we’re part of nearly every community. We’ve been very lucky – people love our products and people. So we feel, it’s just as important now to give something back.
We are proud to partner with three national children’s charities, Make-A-Wish UK, Tommy’s and Whizz-Kidz with an aim to collectively raise £1 million in the next year.
Our people are champions every day! And our business has had some pretty amazing milestones too:
