  • Poundstretcher Sets Up Shop In Sunny Great Yarmouth

    Following our fantastic Market Deeping store opening yesterday, we're on a roll as we launch another grand store opening today in sunny Great Yarmouth! The sun and the bargains were out today as Poundstretcher played host to yet another amazing opening, the store officially being officially opened by the Mayor of Great Yarmouth, Councillor Kerry Robinson Payne.

    The people of Great Yarmouth had a top choice of stellar bargains waiting for them, with further celebrations in the shape of an action-packed Fun Day! We had free games, amazing giveaways, balloons, game shows, and so much more!

    With an investment of £1 million, this large former BHS store has been modelled to enhance the shopping experience for all our Great Yarmouth customers. The store has also recruited 20 new members of staff (part and full time) from the local area to become part of the Poundstretcher team.

    Offering a great selection of branded food and drink, be on the look-out for our range of seasonal products, providing great bargains every day. We have all you'd ever need this spring to turn your outdoor space into a lush paradise, be it gardening supplies, solar lights, garden furniture, or outdoor games.

    Brian Brownlie, area manager, commented: “Poundstretcher has invested a huge amount into bringing this amazing shopping experience to the people of Great Yarmouth.

    “We have lots of famous brands on offer at unbeatable prices, making it a good reason for our customers to enjoy the new store. As a company, I feel we have never had a better-branded offer!

    "The entire day itself was great. The team worked hard to deliver an outstanding experience for our new customers with great service and an enjoyable shopping environment.”

    Thanks to all our loyal customers and hard-working staff in Great Yarmouth for making this newest grand opening a memorable one!

    With an investment of £500,000, this newly designed former Co-Op store has all current staff positions secured. and is the final Co-Op store we have taken over. Previously, we have had our last four (Ramsey, SwaffhamSyston, and Dronfield) Co-Op-to-Poundstretcher Stores opened within the last two months, employing over 100 members of staff in all.

    Offering a great selection of branded food and drink, be on the look-out for our range of seasonal products, providing great bargains every day.

    "All the locals were pleased with everything we had to offer and all the bargains available to them. It's very satisfying to see all our customers happy after being given such a pleasant shopping experience."
