Poundland, based at former Wilko in Worcester High Street, now open

Poundland, based at former Wilko in Worcester High Street, now open

A NEW discount store on Worcester High Street enjoyed a busy morning as it opened its door for the first time to customers.

Early morning customers were greeted at the doors as the new Poundland store opened at 8am on Saturday morning, (October 7).

It has been a quick turnaround at the store after Poundland owner Pepco agreed to buy up to 71 Wilko stores – including Worcester’s – following the collapse of that chain last month.

Poundland in The Shambles closed in March 2020 while the city’s second store in Broad Street remains closed as building work continues to make the structure safe.

Alex Ward, store manager of the new shop, told us everything had gone well with their opening.

“Customer response to Poundland coming back to Worcester has been extremely positive from the offset,” he said.

“After a period of almost three years we are delighted to welcome customers back into our newly refitted store.

“Everything has gone extremely well, customers are delighted, and the team are all positive.”

Mr Ward told us the store is employing 16 staff to run the shop between the hours of 8am to 6pm Monday to Saturday, 10.30am to 4.30 on Sundays.

Mr Ward added: “At the moment we are concentrating on our core Poundland range, but also with the exciting line of Pepco fashion for women and children.”

White Stuff - Thinking About Sustainability

Thinking about Sustainability

The good and the bad news...

OKAY, HERE’S THE BAD NEWS

We don’t make sustainable fashion. No one does. And even if such a thing were possible, it wouldn’t be enough. The climate crisis can’t be solved by personal consumer choices. It needs a fundamental, global shift in the way we live and work. But that doesn’t mean we can’t all do better, and try a bit harder to limit our impact on the earth.

AND HERE’S THE GOOD NEWS

That’s what we’re doing. We believe we have a duty to tread more lightly on the earth and we are committed to finding ways to do that. And we try to work with other people who feel the same way. We want our clothes to last and to be worn season after season. We design them thoughtfully, with unique details and in-house prints, and we don’t chase fleeting trends. And we think about everything that goes into each garment.
