Poundland is opening two more smaller ‘local’ stores as it expands a testing program across the UK.

The discounter will open the doors to new convenience stores in Clapham, London and Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands, this summer.

Items you will find in the stores include groceries, snacks and household products, as well as health and beauty items, toys, stationery and housewares.

Poundland previously told The Mirror that its “local” stores will include a wider range of fresh fruit and vegetables, chilled and frozen groceries, and bread and breakfast items.

Beer, wines and spirits will also be available, as well as vaping products, lottery tickets and scratch cards.

Customers can also purchase chilled and frozen groceries, hot cakes and pastries, diapers and formula milk.

Poundland first launched its new ‘local’ format in May 2021. It now has four convenience stores in Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire.

At the time of launch, Poundland said its convenience store chains will differ from traditional smaller stores in that its prices will not be more expensive.

Poundland says it is actively looking for other suitable sites, particularly within the M25. Each “local” store typically employs around 12 people.

The next Poundland Local branch to open will be the first in London. It opens on Saturday 2nd July at Unit 4B, Junction Centre, St John’s Hill, Clapham Junction, London SW11 1RU.

The new store in Clapham Junction will be the first at a busy transport hub and will be designed to offer customers quick and easy checkout.

The first Poundland Local Store will follow this summer in the West Midlands at 37 Boldmere Road, Sutton Coldfield B73 5UY.

Poundland Transformation and Retail Director Austin Cooke said: “Each of the new stores will have a range of items tailored to the needs of customers in that particular neighbourhood, whether they live or work locally.

“In the current economy, people are paying close attention to how much they spend, and we want them to know that convenience shopping doesn’t have to mean compromising on value for money.”

Poundland has around 850 stores in the UK.

The budget retailer also acquired Poundshop.com in March 2022, allowing it to accelerate its launch of home delivery services.

The brand said the acquisition is part of a “transformation of Poundland” which will spur a nationwide launch of its own online store after a trial last year.
