POUNDLAND have confirmed they will open their new store in Workington this weekend, leaving shoppers in the town with further choice in the run up to Christmas.

Poundland has announced they will open their doors in the former H and M unit on 3 Risman Place, Workington in the Washington Square Shopping Centre this Saturday, December 2.

Work is well underway in the unit which is located directly opposite TK Maxx in the town, which opened in October.

The new store will see them relocate to a bigger unit within the town, having previously had their home on Campbell-Savours Way, Workington.

All new Poundland stores will feature the very latest Pepco family clothing that has rolled out to 560 of Poundland’s existing UK and Ireland stores.

The clothing ranges feature new ranges from lifestyle and athleisure brands such as Cardio Bunny and Bekkin and a significant increase in the space dedicated to baby and kidswear.

Austin Cooke, Poundland’s managing director said: “We excitedly continue to open and relocate stores at pace so we can bring our best offer, including all-new clothing, chilled and frozen food to customers, existing and new.

“The monumental effort from our teams continues to amaze me, and it supports jobs and high streets right across Britain.

“That's 86 stores in 70 days that we'll have opened successfully, and no one should underestimate the effort and energy that our teams have put into delivering that achievement - I certainly don’t. It’s phenomenal.”
