The 2024 Creative Retail Awards are open for entries.

The Creative Retail Awards are much more than a mere accolade; they represent the pinnacle of achievement in the retail industry. Garnering a nomination or winning one of these awards is a testament to innovation, excellence, and leadership.


In Brentwood and Worksop, Poundland will relocate into the Wilko units from nearby stores. Both new locations will offer Poundland’s widest ranges of clothing, homewares, and groceries.

Darren Kay, Poundland’s retail director, stated: “We’re proud that to date, we’re the only retailer that’s delivered on its promise to re-open Wilko stores and offer roles to their people. In four short weeks we’ll have opened 37 Wilko stores – an amazing achievement by hundreds of colleagues right across our Poundland business. The team that’s making this happen are part of something very special – protecting jobs, keeping high streets alive and serving many new communities. I’d like to thank them for all the hard work that’s making sure these former Wilko stores begin their new Poundland journeys in such good shape. While more extensive refits will be scheduled for the new year, we look forward to welcoming customers old and new to their new stores this weekend.”

Poundland is also encouraging former Wilko employees to apply for roles in the new stores. Interested candidates can follow Poundland’s posts on LinkedIn or visit Poundland Careers for more details on open roles and how to apply.

Furthermore, this Saturday will also see the opening of a brand new Poundland store at Queens Retail Park in Stafford, ST17 4SU.
