Everything for £1 was the idea of our founders in 1990 and we’re still true to that great vision today. Yes, Everything for £1 We work hard to bring you amazing value products everyday, over half of which are sourced from the UK. Sometimes the products we sell are just so popular that we may run out of stock, but we always try to replace them as soon as possible – except perhaps, for some of our unrepeatable WOW offers! From real deal top brands and daily essential items, to fantastic new lines and stunning WOW products, we hope our quality, variety and inflation busting style gives you irresistible value on each visit. Every week, millions of savvy customers enjoy the fun and exciting shopping experience of Poundland in hundreds of stores nationwide. We are very proud to offer you a single £1 price, that hasn’t changed since we opened our first store. SAME AMAZING PRICE SINCE 1990!
