In Bristol, at Emersons Green, pound land has dropped every one of its prices to 90p (apart from the manager specials). The store assistant said it's because of pound world opening in the same retail park. She said it's for the foreseeable future as they are doing really well from it. Includes the deals such as now it's 3 wrapping paper for £1.80!

It's not all 90p. Poundland now sell things over £1.

Think they need to rethink either naming their stores, or selling things back at £1

Or keep their name which is already known by customers and suppliers, whilst selling I'd say 99.5% of their products at £1 (or 3 for £1 etc) and using their buying power (buying high amounts of more expensive stock brining the cost of buying down) selling several select products at a higher cost to drive sales as a business. Just my opinion but I'd say keep the name.

pound land. but how many pounds? I think its as simple as that.

They have had things priced at 90p for the last 2 months!

nice spot op, heat

epic. just got a massive bag of flash etc, named products, all at 90 p. about 2 percent of items are priced higher

They have done the same at Worthing in West Sussex if it helps anyone.

Great find OP Im very 10p-ted.

Hot

another store closing?

Same in wood Green.

BIG DEAL

They've been charging 90p since the large poundworld opened in the same shopping area...

Poundland's business in Ireland is called Dealz because they couldn't get Euroland and they stuff costs more than 1€ anyway.

Is there any evidence of this strategy (which the pound shops have been employing for years) actually working? (By "working" I mean driving the competition back out, as I can't see any other benefit as inevitably the competitor just drops their price to a similar level and both stores lose out).

Also "Dealz" but poundland store design in Torremolinos Spain......prices are 1.50 euro each

Many Many years ago "Groatland" beat off the competiton "Farthingland"...so it does happen.

The end of civilisation is upon us if pound shops are having price wars.
