More than 25 jobs are being created in Sheffield as a new discount retailer opens its second branch in the city.

Yorkshire-based Poundworld has announced it is to open a branch in Parkway Central Retail Park.

It has taken over the former Brantano Shoes unit, next to Home Bargains and Matalan.

The store, the firm’s 240th, is due to open on Thursday, March 20, creating 30 jobs.

Chris Edwards junior, Poundworld trading director, said: “We’re delighted to be opening a new store.

“We already have a store at Crystal Peaks Shopping Centre in Waterthorpe and it’s fantastic to be creating another 30 new retail jobs for the city with our second store.

“We hope customers will take advantage of the great deals we have on a range that includes branded and value products, from groceries to cleaning products and pet care.”
