Jobs created as Poundland opens second store

Poundland, Europe’s biggest single price discount retailer, has announced plans to open a new store at the Strathkelvin Retail Park in Bishopbriggs.

The shop already has a well-known local presence in Kirkintilloch, but the new store will be in addition to that. A number of jobs are being created for the local area, with the store due to open within the next three months.

Poundland’s trading 
director, Richard Lancaster, said: “Poundland has grown significantly over the past 12 months and it’s fantastic to see this expansion continuing with a new store in Strathkelvin. The nearest Poundland store for Strathkelvin customers is currently in Kirkintilloch, which is over two miles away, so we wanted to give local residents a more convenient store in their area. We’re looking forward to opening our doors.”
