A new discount store will open in King’s Lynn’s Vancouver Quarter today (Friday) creating 20 jobs.

One Below is a new discount brand from the original founders of Poundworld and will open at the former Poundworld unit at 10am.

The independent chain sells more than 5,000 products for £1 and under.

These range from groceries, beauty and health to baby care, toys, DIY and gardening.

Some former Poundworld staff who lost their jobs when the Lynn shop went into administration in 2018, have been given jobs at the new One Below store.

Christopher Edwards, managing director of One Below Retail Limited, said: “We’re extremely happy to be opening our first store in the area in King’s Lynn with some amazing bargains for local shoppers.

“It’s fantastic to be able to create 20 local jobs for the retail industry too and we hope to open more stores in the area over the next year, creating even more jobs.”

The Lynn shop will be the first store in Norfolk and one of 50 planned to open nationally this year.

See next week’s YLP for a chance to bag some bargains at the new store. There will be four prizes of £25 to be won.
