POUNDLAND has announced the opening date for its largest store in Scotland. 

The super-size store is set to open on Saturday, March 11 on Crown Street in the Gorbals. 

The shop will be a whopping 18,380 ft, over three times the size of an average Poundland, and will create 45 jobs. 

The store is expected to become a tourist destination in its own right with its own brown tourist signage. 

The National:

The new Poundland will feature the widest range available in any Scottish store, stocking food and drink, home and pet items, entertainment and stationery and will have the most extensive range of toys in any of their shops. 

Around a third of the shop will be dedicated to Pep clothing and homeware and there will be changing rooms for customers.

The Pep home department will include the latest 2023 ranges, including new kitchen storage options, bathroom accessories, soft furnishings, faux plans and real house plants.

The Crown Street store will also join the growing number of Poundlands to offer chilled and frozen food, fresh food and vegetables and a selection of beers, wine and spirits. 

It will offer a range of small domestic appliances from Russell Hobbs, such as toasters, kettles and irons.

There will be a wider than usual range of health and beauty products including Poundland’s own Make Up Gallery, #6 skincare and brands such as Rimmel and Essence.

Darren Kay, Poundland director of retail, said: "We’re looking forward to opening the largest Poundland in Scotland. 

"In fact, some may even say it’s a ‘beezer’ of a store.

"The size of the store means there’s more of our amazing value under one roof across more categories than ever before. 

"The first four destination stores of this scale we’ve opened in England have wowed customers and we’re thrilled it’s now time to bring our best offer to Glasgow.

"We can’t wait to open the doors on March 11."
