Discount store to open

Have your say

Family-owned Yorkshire retailer Discount UK is opening its first Sheffield outlet, creating 40 new jobs.

Discount UK is the sister company of single price retailer Poundworld and will open its 39th store, since its launch two years ago by father and son team, Chris Edwards senior and junior, at Drakehouse Retail Park on Friday.

Trading director Chris Edwards junior said: “Sheffield is a great city and we’re very pleased to be opening our first store here.

“Discount UK aims to offer the best possible value and we hope the new store will help families who are seeking better deals and bigger savings to combat the rising cost of everyday living.”

Discount UK hopes to have 50 stores open by the end of the year, selling more than 6,000 products, including leading brands, at prices which can be as low as £1 or less.
