Since calling on bargain hunters to help shift its limited edition Donald Trump range of products, in light of the US president’s cancelled state visit to the UK, Poundland has confirmed that over 40,000 products have been sold nationwide.
Chris Wall, trading controller of the 900-strong discount chain, said: “The Trump range is perfect for Halloween – it’s the most frightening range we’ve ever sold. With shoppers able to purchase anything from the range for just £1, it’s easy to shock your friends as the POTUS at this year’s Halloween party.”
