POUNDLAND in Bridgwater is set to welcome back customers this Friday from 8am.
The store in Angel Place was one of 29 of the chain’s outlets to close temporarily during the lockdown.
Poundland retail director, Austin Cooke, said: “We’re proud to have kept most of our stores open serving our communities with the essentials they need, but in some places, we couldn’t stay open when so many of our neighbours were forced to close,” he said.
“The roadmap is good news for retailers and our town centres which have such an important role to play in our recovery and our colleagues and customers will be delighted that we’re re-opening in these locations, and so are we.
“Safety continues to be our first priority, and shoppers can return with confidence – we’re well-versed in making our stores safe place to shop. We’re all looking forward to giving them a warm welcome as they return.”
