Since opening our first store in Burton-upon-Trent in 1990, Poundland, has built a network of over 850 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!
Poundland offers thousands of quality products in store with over 1,000 well-known brands in 17 shopping categories including food and drink, health and beauty, household, gardening, DIY, pet, stationery, books, DVDs and toys. We are now on a journey from a single price to a simple price point retailer.
Now part of Pepco Group with over 2,500 stores across Europe, you will see Poundland also trades internationally in the Republic of Ireland through its Dealz brand. Dealz has a growing store base in both Poland and Spain.
Within the UK Poundland has also rolled out its fashion brand PEP&CO to approximately 300 of our larger stores. PEP&CO, launched in 2015 as a stand-alone brand, offers customers a full range of women’s, men’s and kids’ fashion and is now bringing new style to Poundland with simple low pricing on family fashion that’s hard to find on local high streets.
With well over 850 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:
Valentine's Day Bling Ring
Shortlisted for #6 Range
Nominated for Private Label of the year
As Value Discount Retailer of the year 2018
Dealz won Best for Value Award
We have some amazing career choices. Opportunities to grow your career with us, show off your skills, your passion for retail and customer service and join a business that can give you the real chance to progress.
The stock doesn’t stay on the shelves long! So we’re constantly replenishing our stores with all our latest offers and seasonal goodies. Covering the whole of the UK we have a warehouse and distribution network the envy of any retailer, huge storage facilities with a full complement of warehouse teams, plus a considerable fleet of HGV’s and drivers. Our current locations are Willenhall (West Mids), Springvale (West Mids), Harlow (Essex), and Wigan.
The emphasis at Head office is to support both our front-line teams and our customers. That’s why we call it our Customer Support Centre (CSC) – based in the heart of Walsall, West Midlands. Here you’ll find a full complement of support teams, responsible for every aspect of running one of the UK’s favourite retailers.
Our new CSC is the latest milestone in our transformation programme, creating a stunning and energy-efficient new home for our colleagues to work from and do what they do best.

We Put Customers First
Customers are our business; we always work hard to make them happy. When they and their families’ smile, we smile with them. So go on, give it a go... play your part in making their shopping experience the best in town!
Treat Every Pound As Your Own
We’re passionate about saving money! We keep costs low to create amazing value for our customers. We’re savvy investors and spend wisely, making sure that our money works hard and gives a great return- you know what they say, look after the pennies and the pounds look after themselves.
Keep It Simple
Our business operates at warp speed so we have to keep things simple. We’re always improving what we do and growing without complicating things; we don’t want anything getting in the way of us doing our job. If you can see a better way, then shout about it and make it happen.
Recognise and Celebrate Success
Big stuff certainly counts, we love hearing about record numbers and our new store openings. Tip top displays, great customer service or going that extra mile to support a colleague all deserve celebration. So, let’s say it loud and say it proud, well done!
Respect Each Other
R.E.S.P.E.C.T, Respect is like a mirror if you give it, you get it, so always treat people as you want to be treated – communicate, share, lead, involve. We are pretty down to earth with open doors and no politics, it just gets in the way.
Individual Responsibility, Team Delivery
We all work hard to reach our individual goals but we are one big team- you have great colleagues around you to help and support. Individually we’re strong, as a collective we’re unbeatable, achieving the impossible every day. So remember, ask for help when you need it and pull together.
