Poundland will quietly open its new store at Macclesfield Lyme Green Retail Park at 9am on Saturday 13 February, but is urging shoppers to visit only for essential supplies. 

The new store will create 26 new jobs in the town and at 8,317 square feet it will bring shoppers even more choice. 

It will offer the full range of chilled and frozen food which has been extended to more than Poundland 120 stores since the first trial in 2019. It also features PEP&CO family fashion and home ranges. 

It means customers can pick up more of their shopping under one roof. While the new Macclesfield store will offer a wide range of groceries and household essentials to shoppers in the area, it is important customers heed government advice and only come if they need to. 

If that’s the case, our colleagues in the new store are ready to play their role in supporting the local community during these extraordinary times. As an essential retailer, Poundland has kept the vast majority of its UK stores open during the latest lockdown. 

The new store complements the existing nearby store in Mill Street, Macclesfield. Like all Poundland stores, it will operate to the highest standards of safety with barrier screens at checkouts and thorough and regular cleaning regimes applied across the day. Customers are asked to observe government guidelines on social distancing and wearing masks. 

Poundland retail director Austin Cooke said: “Macclesfield is a great town for us and we can’t wait to open the doors on our store on Saturday. 

“During the lockdown, we’re here for the essentials customers need and in the longer term our colleagues at the new Macclesfield store are ready to play a big part in the community in the months and years ahead.”
