Poundland’s Nottingham store was formally opened on Saturday morning at 9.00am.
It was officially opened by some of the East Midlands’ tallest people – 7-foot tall Morakinyo Williams and 6ft 2-inch Kyle Jimenez basketball players from the “Hoods” – the Nottingham Hoods Basketball club.
The Nottingham Riverside store will also be home to Poundland’s biggest team to date, with 75 full and part-time colleagues, all ready to make sure customers get a fantastic shopping experience.
More than a third of the space will be dedicated to PEP&CO, allowing it to offer the biggest range from the UK’s fastest growing clothing brand – now one of the top 20 clothing retailers in the UK in less than seven years since its launch.
As well as womenswear, menswear and kidswear –the PEP&CO Home department will include the very latest 2022 ranges including new kitchen storage options, faux plants, bathroom accessories and soft furnishings. It will also have two items currently setting the internet alight – new double-walled mugs and a wire fruit basket.
Nottingham Riverside has been designed to give Poundland customers maximum convenience, with extra wide aisles to make navigating the store easier, as well as trolleys and the kind of belted checkouts they’re used to seeing at supermarkets. The PEP&CO ‘shop-in-shop’ will also have changing rooms for customer use.
