(My bad!) I meant I will miss "PoundWorld and the other "PoundWorld Group" shops

They were very good for cheap wargaming miscellany. That means more £1 packets of:
  • Cheap "Superglue".
  • Cheap "PVA".
  • Cheap "DIY lining paper".
  • Cheap "Masking Tape".
  • Cheap "Storage Containers".
  • Cheap "Cable Ties".
There are probably many other things too.
But also, quite a few people (and families) have lost their jobs

:(

Geordie,

I thought that it was Poundworld and not Poundland that was closing branches. I visited a local Poundland branch yesterday, and it was full of stock, staff, and customers.

All the best,

Bob

Poundworld is closing, Poundland is still expanding as far as I'm aware.

Mild panic - Do you mean Poundworld?

I have not yet seen media coverage of problems at Poundland (you had me worried there as Poundland is my retail second home and I have applied for dual nationality)

I agree it is said when such Woolworths type chains close as they are (entry level) retail jobs for many people and I have often found their staff attitude to customer care better than many "better" shops.

My bad, my bad
PoundWorld (and PoundWorld Group)

Still a shame
Down to one supplier of cheap wargaming essentials

Not "Fake News"
Just "bad Reporting"

My aplogies

What a relief. What would I do without my cheap (but increasingly expensive*) Poundland source of £1 Soldier tubs?
*Once 100 figures for £1, now 70 for £1.

Still full of potential for my conversions
