Poundland first contacted us in 2007 to help them to meet challenging store opening targets.
We’ve worked closely with the in house property project managers for over ten years, supporting them each year to achieve their targets. They have now successfully opened over 700 stores, and rely on our in depth knowledge of their estate.
Our service includes carrying out full (3D laser scan) site surveys. This often can be with as little as 24 hours’ notice of a survey requirement anywhere within the UK. Following a survey we produce detailed plans in order to obtain statutory approvals including planning, advertisement, landlords and building regulations consents. We have also acted as agent when Poundland has appealed planning decisions, successfully overturning a number of decisions in the client’s favour.
Following the acquisition by Steinhoff International in 2016, Poundland have started to remodel at lot of the existing estate to incorporate parent company Pep&Co discount fashion retail brand. The first Poundland/Pep&Co store in store opened in 2017.
HLP have been involved carrying out the survey and preparing drawings of the new Store In Store’s as well as obtaining statutory approvals in particular within Scotland where Building Warrants have been required.
We have also supported the client with a number of group acquisitions of other retailers (such as Woolworths, Poundworld and 99P Stores), acting quickly and discretely to ensure they are able to take over the leases.
Key to the success of our relationship with Poundland is our ability to react quickly to instructions, our UK coverage and our ability to complement the skills of the in house Poundland team.
