Chris Edwards Junior, trading director at Poundworld, said: “We’re excited to be opening our first store in Edmonton Green at the Edmonton Green Shopping Centre, creating 30 new retail jobs for the area.

“Our store has a massive range and is in a great location so we’re confident that we can tempt people away from Poundland with our fantastic bargains.

“We hope shoppers will take advantage of the great deals we have on a vast range that includes branded and value products, from groceries to cleaning products and pet care.”
