A new discount store officially opened in Northampton today, welcoming “crowds” of shoppers.
The Poundworld shop, which opened at 10am this morning (July 2) in the former Mamas & Papas unit in the Sixfields Retail Park, has created 30 new jobs.
Following the opening ceremony, store manager Matthew Bryan said: “The opening has been a huge success. We had crowds waiting outside to bag a bargain before we opened, and we’re really delighted with the brilliant response.”
The 6,000 square foot store, next to Boots, is offering shoppers 5,000 different products, including a new Miss Beauty London makeup range, all priced at £1.
A Yorkshire-based brand, Poundworld was founded in 2004 and has over 280 stores across the UK, including one in the Grosvenor Centre in Northampton.
