Pounmland Arnold

Major discount retailer Poundland will replace the departed Argos store in Arnold town centre.

The discount retailer has submitted planning permission documents requesting that they can replace the store front at the empty property on Front Street.

The building used to house Argos until it closed and moved to the Sainsbury’s store in the town.

The site is located next to the popular Wilkinson’s store in the town centre.

It’s welcome news for the town, which has suffered numerous high profile closures recently as a result of the recent pandemic.

Poundland, which sells mostly items at the single price of £1, including clearance items and proprietary brands, opened its first store in Burton Upon Trent in 1990 and has since opened 896 stores across the UK.
