Poundland Reach 20 Stores in NI

The 20th Poundland store in Northern Ireland will open its doors later this month in Erneside Shopping Centre, Enniskillen. The store opening marks a further milestone in the retail giant’s entry into the Northern Ireland retail market as implemented by Belfast based TDK Commercial Property Consultants.

TDKs retail team headed by Mark Thallon have planned and implemented Poundland’s emergence into the NI market with new stores acquired in Strabane, Banbridge, Castle Court, Ann Street, Park Centre, Kennedy Centre and Connswater Belfast, Abbeycentre, Ballymena, Lisburn, Magherafelt, Newtownards, Derry, Cookstown, Dungannon and Portadown.

The latest Poundland store will provide 4,500 sq ft of retail trading space. The store is set to create 30 jobs for the Enniskillen area. In total the 20 Poundland stores in Northern Ireland as secured by TDK, have created employment in excess of 600 jobs.

Commenting on the letting and implementation as a whole, TDK Retail Partner, Mark Thallon said;

‘This exciting new store will add a new level of retail experience to Enniskillen’s prime Shopping Centre. The acquisition of the 20th Poundland store confirms both Poundland’s and TDK’s confidence in the retail market within Northern Ireland at a time when market conditions remain challenging.’

Tim McDonnell, Retail Operations Director at Poundland, said: “Poundland’s first Irish store was opened in Belfast in nearly 2 years ago and has been a huge success in Northern Ireland, In fact, it is forecast to be our most successful region in the UK. Poundland is the first single price retailer in Northern Ireland and the customers seem to love the concept, the brand, the service and the value for money. We really are going from strength to strength in this region and are looking forward to bringing the Poundland experience to Enniskillen.”
