Britain's Poundland sales up 19.3 per cent.
The chain, where everything costs £1, revealed yesterday that annual sales for the 53 weeks to April were £780million — up 19.3 per cent.
Poundland, Europe’s largest single price discount retailer, has opened 62 new stores in the last year, creating 1,500 jobs — and its expansion is set to continue at pace.
Chief exec Jim McCarthy told Sun City: “We are a fantastic business during good times. We are a very, very good business during bad times. About 14 per cent of Britain’s high street stores are shut at the moment. We are expanding.
