Poundland scraps its website and announces major change for shoppers

Poundland has announced that it will scrap its website and bring in a huge change for shoppers. The bargain store has announced that its shop.poundland.co.uk will soon disappear in a week’s time.

On May 27 shoppers now have to buy items from the store’s website before its closed down. However, it will soon change its domain to Poundshop.co. Poundland bought the similar online discount retail business back in March, with plans to transfer over its own products like its Pep & Co range, for more customers to enjoy.

Poundland.co.uk isn’t going anywhere any time soon though, so fans will still be able to browse bargain buys and check out what’s available in-store from the comfort of home. Poundland had set up a seperate online portal (its shop.poundland.co.uk site) in a trial last June, that would allow thousands of shoppers to order right to their doors.

The pilot meant selected postcodes in Birmingham and Walsall, as well as across the Midlands and into South Yorkshire, could order Poundland products for home delivery. Those services will be scrapped though, when the site closes down for good later in the month.

Poundshop.com is available nationwide in contrast. And that’s why bosses are keen to move Poundland’s products onto the online site.

Barry Williams, Poundland managing director, said: “It’s great to warmly welcome the Poundshop.com team to Poundland. This acquisition puts power and pace behind our aspirations to make our amazing products and value available to customers across the UK and Ireland, however they choose to shop. ”
