Growing value chain Poundworld has confirmed it will open its first store in Newton Aycliffe in November.
The new store will be situated in what was previously occupied by Poundstretcher within Aycliffe Shopping Centre.
The opening is part of a planned redevelopment for Aycliffe town centre transforming the town as a retail destination, providing a hub for Newton Aycliffe’s rapidly growing residential and business community.
A family-run company that started on a Wakefield market stall, Poundworld pledges to help Aycliffe shoppers save big on their favourite household names including Cadbury’s, Johnson’s and Colgate.
With over 5,000 products for the price of £1, savvy Poundworld shoppers can take advantage of consistently great deals on thousands of leading brands to drive down the cost of their weekly shop.
The huge 5,000 square foot store will stock everything from cleaning products, health and beauty items, stationery and DIY to toys and pet care products.
Area manager Tracey Readman said: “We’re thrilled to announce the news that we’ll be opening in Newtown Aycliffe.
“Previously locals would have to travel to Darlington or Bishop Auckland to shop with us. We’re excited to open our doors to shoppers.”
Aycliffe shopping centre manager Bryan Haldane added: “We’re delighted to welcome Poundworld’s new store as the latest addition to our ever growing retail offer.”
Poundworld, a fast-growing value chain, was recently the subject of popular BBC1 documentary ‘Pound Shop Wars’, has over 300 stores nationwide and plans to open a further fifty stores in the next year.
