Discount store expands into Woolworth’s site

Have your say

DISCOUNT shop Poundland has expanded into Peterlee.

The retailer has agreed a deal to let a Yoden Way site previously owned by Woolworth’s.

The firm, named Discount Retailer of the Year at the 2011 Retail Industry Awards, signed a two-year contract with Bradley Hall surveyors.

Bradley Hall director Neil Hart said: “The former Woolworths site is in a prime high street location, as many former Woolworth sites were.

“It’s fantastic to see companies taking on disused sites and rejuvenating high streets.”
