Is the Deeside retail experience about to be completed by the arrival of Poundworld (not to be confused with Poundland)
While B&Q prepares to withdraw from Deeside Retail Park, another national retailer is preparing to take up occupancy – Poundworld has submitted two planning applications this week for external work including the removal of timber hoardings and replacing them with a new aluminium shop front on the vacant unit next to Pets At Home.
Locally Poundworld already has stores in Broughton, Wrexham, Ellesmere Port and Chester, in total they have around 300 stores nationally employing around 6000 people.
The Poundworld concept has been a massive hit with British bargain hunters, their single price variety stores, sells most of its items for £1.
The chain was founded in 1974 by Yorkshire-based father and son team Chris Edwards Sr. and Chris Edwards Jr. and stocks over 5000 products across a variety of categories including groceries, health and beauty, toiletries, cleaning products and pet care.
