Poundland checks into High Street

Budget chain Poundland today (Thursday) opens a shop in part of the former TJ Hughes department store in High Street in Sheffield city centre. It will employ 15 staff.

The company is taking one of three units in the building, originally a Walsh’s store, which has been empty since the end of 2012. The other two tenants were named last year as Sports Direct and the British Heart Foundation. TJ Hughes has moved to The Moor.
