It is one of the stores to be temporarily mothballed by the discount retailer as the impact of lockdown starts to bite.
Poundland in the Mercat Shopping Centre is on the list of shops going into ‘hibernation’ from Saturday.
Poundland confirmed it will close the doors to 44 stores which have been impacted by an 80% fall in footfall across some shopping centres and high streets due to the lockdown measures.
During the first lockdown in March, Poundland temporarily shut 120 stores but reopened these sites in May as footfall began to recover.
The company said it has open stores nearby to the majority of sites it has temporarily closed.
Poundland said the vast majority of its more than 800 stores will remain open due its status as an essential retailer.
