Discount retailer, Poundland, will be opening a new Preston store in the Fishergate Centre on Thursday.

To celebrate the opening there will be a family fun day on Saturday August 30 when the doors open at 8.30am.

There will be £100 worth of Poundland vouchers to be won throughout the day in the ‘checkout challenge’ event and the first 50 customers at the tills to spend over £5 will receive a free bottle of sparkling wine.

Preston-based radio station Rock FM and a DJ will be in-store to entertain customers and give away balloons and sweets throughout the day.

Poundland sells hundreds of products from top brands such as Colgate, Johnson & Johnson, Walkers, and Cadbury’s to everyday essential products, all at £1 each.

David Coxon, Trading Director at Poundland, said: “Poundland offers quality, variety and inflation busting style to over two million savvy shoppers every week.

"The £1 price hasn’t changed since we opened our first store 18 years ago.

"Our current customers’ love us – and we are sure Preston shoppers will love us too."
