About Poundworld

Poundworld is a family business and that’s how we like to view everyone who works here - part of our wider family.

The family history of Poundworld stretches back to 1974 and Wakefield, where founder Chris Edwards first set up his market stall. His son joined him in 2004, straight after school. Together they built a network of stores spanning the length and breadth of the Country - a network that includes over 300 stores and employs over 6000 people.

Over two million customers are served every week, trusting us to provide reliable savings on a range of top brands and quality products including big name groceries, toiletries, cosmetics, pet care , DIY, toys, stationery and electricals.

In 2013 Poundworld Retail launched its first multi-price store Bargain Buys and the brand now trades from over 50 locations nationwide. The year after, Poundworld made the prestigious Sunday Times ‘Top Track 250’ list and was named one of the nation’s fastest growing companies of the year.

From strength to strength the brand continues to grow with plans for a further 200 new stores in the next 2 years. It’s a flourishing and dynamic environment with endless opportunities to enhance and develop your career!
