I visit the revamped Poundland at Perry Barr's One Stop Shopping Centre and loved the positive vibe

After being closed for two years, the Poundland store at the One Stop Shopping Centre in Perry Barr, Birmingham, finally reopened its doors to the public on Saturday, January 27, 2024.

The discount retailer, which is popular among bargain hunters, had to shut down its store in 2022 due to the expiry of its lease. This meant that loyal customers had to go to other Poundland branches in Birmingham, such as Great Barr, Corporation Street, or Bearwood, to shop for their favourite items.

The store has undergone a makeover and has been filled with a variety of products, such as household essentials, health and beauty items, stationery, toys, and snacks. It also showcases Poundland’s newest deals and special offers, such as the clothing range and the Valentine’s Day collection.

As someone who shops at Poundland regularly, I was overjoyed to learn that the store at the One Stop Shopping Centre had reopened. I had felt its absence since it closed in 2022, and I was curious to see what improvements had been made.

I went to the store on its opening day, and I was pleasantly surprised. The store had a fresh and modern look, with a bright and colourful design. The shelves were full and well-organised, making it easy to browse and shop.

The staff were courteous and helpful, and they looked happy to be working again. The store had a positive vibe, and there was a sense of enthusiasm among the shoppers.

I was amazed by the diversity and quality of the products that the store offered. I discovered some items that I had not seen before, such as the clothing range, which had some fashionable and cosy pieces. I believe that the new Poundland store at the One Stop Shopping Centre is a wonderful addition to the area.

It offers a convenient and cheap shopping option for the local people, as well as the visitors. It also boosts the local economy by creating jobs and drawing customers. I am happy that Poundland is back, and I can’t wait to go there again soon.

Customers who went to the newly opened store also shared their happiness and satisfaction: Shannon says, “I’m glad that Poundland is back. I really missed it. They have everything I want at a good price.”

Ciara says, “It’s nice to see the store looking neat, clean and roomy. It’s much better than before. They have a lot of new stuff, such as the clothes in the store. ”

Abdullah says, “I think it’s a good thing for the area, as it creates more jobs. Poundland is a well-known brand and a lot of people like it, so it’s good for the community.”

Poundland is one of the UK’s leading discount retailers, with over 800 stores across the country. It sells a variety of products, mostly for £1, but also offers some items for 50p, £2, or £5. It is known for its value, quality, and convenience.

The store at the One Stop Shopping Centre is open from Monday to Saturday, 8:00 am to 7:00 pm, and on Sunday, 11:00 am to 5:00 pm. It can be accessed by car, bus, tram, or train, as it is near the Perry Barr Station and the A34.
