A new discount store is set to open at an east Suffolk retail park, creating 25 jobs.

Poundland has announced it will be joining Beardmore Park at Martlesham Heath on Thursday, February 26.

It follows last month’s announcement that TK Maxx and HomeSense would be building new stores in the park, bringing a further 70 new jobs.

The store will be Poundland’s third in the wider Ipswich area, with current locations at Tower Ramparts and Carr Street.

Poundland’s Richard Lancaster said: “We are delighted to be opening a third store, creating 25 new jobs for the area.”

“Poundland offers amazing value on top branded products to over five million customers every week for just £1 and we look forward to opening our doors!”
