An empty Anglia Square shop in Norwich is set to be filled by Poundland, opening this Thursday.
The budget retailer say its third Norwich store will create 25 jobs, joining its stores in Riverside and St Stephens Street.
Poundland will be moving into the former Professional Music Technology store in Anglia Square, which moved to the former Wallace Kings furniture showroom in nearby St Augustine’s Street in the summer of 2012.
As recently reported, Tesco are in negotiations to become the 7,792sqm flagship foodstore in the long-awaited multimillion pound revamp of Anglia Square, supported by 507 car park spaces.
The plans include 174 new homes, a public square, new shops, restaurants, cafes and a healthcare centre, while Gildengate House, the office block over the entrance to the car park, would be updated to provide modern offices.
Poundland’s trading director, Richard Lancaster, said: “We are delighted to bring our unique proposition to Anglia Square. Poundland offers amazing value on top branded products to over 4.5 million customers every week.
“The £1 price hasn’t changed since we opened our first store 22 years ago. Our current customers love us and we are sure the Anglia Square shoppers will too.”
