Poundland store in Derby city centre to close down next week

A Poundland store in Derby city centre is to close down next week.

The discount retail giant’s branch in East Street will close its doors for the final time on Saturday, September 18.

The national chain will still retain a city centre presence following the closure, with its branch located by The Spot entrance to Derbion continuing to trade as normal.

A spokesman for Poundland has confirmed the East Street store is closing following the expiry of the lease on the unit.

He said: “While we’re sad that the Poundland store in East Street, Derby, is closing on Saturday 18 September following the expiry of the lease, we’re still offering customers amazing value at our nearby store at London Road.

“It goes without saying, when we close a store, we always work hard to look after colleagues directly affected.”

An “everything must go” sale is now on at the store closing, with ‘massive reductions’ including “25% off everything”, according to signs in the storefront windows.

When a Derbyshire Live reporter visited the store yesterday, Tuesday, September 7, it was busy with customers looking to grab a bargain or two before it shuts down.

Our reporter said: “Stock was seemingly pretty good as of yesterday afternoon, although one of the shop’s three aisles already lay bare and was taped off from the public.

“Speaking to a member of staff at the store, I was told: ‘This is it. If you can’t see it it, we haven’t got it’.”
