Poundworld looks forward to a great 2015 with more store openings & launch of Poundworld Plus


For many people New Year is the perfect time to reflect and look to the future, and it’s no different for the team here at Poundworld.

In 2014 we opened a whopping 36 new stores, creating hundreds of new jobs in towns and cities all over the UK and now we’re looking to 2015 with excitement as we plan to open 50 more new stores in the next 12 months.

Chris Edwards, managing director at Poundworld said: “2014 has been a fantastic year for Poundworld and we’re set to continue our expansion throughout 2015 – bringing amazing value and jobs to even more UK high streets.”

The next few months is set to see new Poundworld stores opening in Bangor, Barrow, Loughborough, Workington, Andover, Dartford, Leicester, Sutton-in-Ashfield, Brighton and Lichfield.

This will bring our total to 250 stores all over the UK, an amazing achievement for a company that started life as a market stall in the West Yorkshire city of Wakefield.

Chris added: “As we celebrate our 40th anniversary, I’m delighted to say that Poundworld is a business that continues to grow and prosper.

We’re a family-run business and our ethos is simple – to provide the public’s favourite leading brands at reliably low prices that can be trusted to stay low.”

Poundworld is named one of UK's fastest growing retailers of 2014


Poundworld is officially one of the UK’s fastest growing retailers according to an official league table published by the Sunday Times.

Known as the Sunday Times Grant Thornton Top Track 250, the prestigious annual league table lists Britain’s 250 leading private mid-market companies that have increased either sales or operating profit by at least 10% in their latest year.

Poundworld ranked 69th, an impressive position that saw us beating well-known brands including Caffe Nero, ScS and Office. We also out-ranked popular companies like Go Outdoors, Yeo Valley and GHD in the table, which was published in the well-respected national newspaper yesterday (12th October, 2014) and was celebrated at an official awards ceremony over the weekend.

Chris Edwards, Managing Director at Poundworld said: “We’re absolutely thrilled to be number 69 in the ‘Sunday Times Top Track 250’ of 2014. It’s an honour for the whole team here at Poundworld to be placed amongst such well-known brands.

“We’ve had a very busy year packed full of new store openings and are fully committed to driving forward on our mission to bring amazing value and outstanding savings to people all over the UK by doubling our store network in the next five years.

“The future is looking bright for Poundworld and our achievements so far wouldn’t have been possible without the unwavering support of our dedicated staff and loyal customers, so I’d like to say a big thank you to them all!”
