Poundstretcher’s entertainer, Ian Gee, said: “We'll be having a fantastic family fun filled day, so come on down for your chance to be the star of the show and take away some great prizes!”

New members of staff from the local area - both part and full time - are being recruited to become part of the Poundstretcher team.

The Property and Legal Director, Gerry Loughran, commented: “We are pleased to be opening a brand new store to the people of Colton with lots of fantastic branded products, all at bargain prices, and look forward to opening another 50 stores over the coming months, creating over 1,000 jobs.

“The team is working hard to deliver an outstanding shopping experience, great service, and an enjoyable shopping environment for all our new customers.

"We are expecting massive queues for our opening day, so come early to catch the bargains!”

This newly refurbished store has also been modelled to enhance the shopping experience for all Poundstretcher customers, the company said.

Loo Loo Rose, Marketing Manager, said: “Our customer’s shopping experience is important to us. We strive to create a positive, enjoyable retail experience where everyone is welcome. We want our customers to feel comfortable in our newly refurbished stores, and we are excited to give them a fresh look and show them off to the public once again. We hope to see more familiar faces when our refurbished stores reopen!”
