Poundland to open 400th Pep&Co clothing shop-in-shop
Poundland has confirmed it will soon open its 400th Pep&Co shop-in-shop concept, located in Spalding, Lincolnshire. It has recently become one of the top 20 clothing retailers in the UK, just six years after the clothing brand was born.
The new store, located at Spalding Retail Park, Winsover Road, will bring shoppers a wide selection of clothing items and create new jobs in the local area. It will employ 24 colleagues, including eight temporary members of staff.
The inclusion of Pep&Co at the new Spalding store means the brand now features in almost half of all Poundland stores, with all stores offering an edited selection of essentials from the clothing range.
PEP&CO started with a single store in 2015 and while there are still a small number of standalone PEP&CO stores, its remarkable growth as one of the UK’s most popular clothing brands has been driven by the opening of PEP&CO shop-in-shops inside Poundland stores.
Spalding will offer the full range of clothing for the whole family, including womenswear, menswear, kidswear and school uniforms. It will also have the very latest Pep&Co Home throws, cushions, photo frames and decorative pieces from its summer 2021 collections.
Poundland Commercial Director, Tim Bettley, commented: “It’s great to reach the milestone of 400 Pep&Co shop-in-shops as we have steadily grown to be one of the UK’s biggest and most popular clothing retailers. What better way to do it than opening the new store in Spalding which will showcase the best of what Poundland has to offer.”
