Poundland forges ahead with 50 more stores

Europe’s biggest single-price discount retailer has already been opening more outlets than planned – 61 in 2009/10 – and now has 261 stores in the UK.

The new shops will have an average sales area of over 6,000sq ft, although the retailer is also planning some larger store formats. The opening programme is said to represent an investment of some £10m.
