Some shoppers feared that the two stores were closing.
But the discount store confirmed today (Tuesday, March 8) that the stores are not closing down, but instead had a half price sale ahead of new stock and new lines being introduced into stores.
A spokesperson for Poundstretcher said: “We can confirm they [The Fort and Kings Heath stores] are not closing down.
“But we are having an ongoing 50% off everything (yes, absolutely everything!) warehouse clearance, with new stock and new lines added all the time.”
Poundstretcher is renowned for selling cut price household and food items - so the half price sale is likely to see some huge bargains up for grabs.
The company prides itself on offering great deals on well known branded products and has a special line for Easter along with its regular homeware, cleaning, food & drink, garden and outdoor and other lines.
