The property and legal director for Poundstretcher, Gerry Loughran, said: “We are pleased to be opening a brand new store to the people of Poole with lots of fantastic branded products, all at bargain prices, and look forward to opening another 50 stores over the coming months, creating over 1,000 jobs.

“New members of staff (both part and full time) from the local area are being recruited to become part of the Poundstretcher team. This new store has also been modelled to enhance the shopping experience for all Poundstretcher customers. It also makes it even easier to find all the bargains and savings they offer every day on branded household and food products, so customers will be able to shop comfortably.

“The team is working hard to deliver an outstanding shopping experience, great service, and an enjoyable shopping environment for all our new customers. We are expecting massive queues for our opening day, so come early to catch the bargains!”

The shop will offer a range of homewares, Christmas decorations, confectionery and a myriad of other essential household items.
