THE UK's 'biggest pound store' will open its doors in Bradford on Friday.

One Below, a new discount store from the original founders of Poundworld, will create 20 jobs when it opens a second store in the city.

The giant 14,000 square foot super store will be located in the Forster Square Retail Park. Stocking 8,000 products, One Below say it will be the biggest pound store to open in the UK.

One Below is the newest discount retailer to hit the UK high street.


Prices in the superstore will start at just 29p and there will be a number of special ‘get it before it’s gone’ deals.

The store will have an extensive range of items across 10 departments, including a party supplies section that will be more than 22 metres long. 

There will also be a huge department of Halloween costume, confectionery and decoration products.

Other departments include groceries, home, health and beauty, baby care, toy, DIY, craft and gardening.

A wide range of branded goods including Coca Cola, Pedigree, Heinz, Kellogg’s and Cadbury will be on offer in store as well as popular cleaning names like Zoflora and The Pink Stuff, as favoured by social media superstar Mrs Hinch.

One Below Forster Square will be the chain's second store to open in Bradford, following the opening of its Darley Street branch earlier this year.

The new brand is being independently financed and launched by Yorkshire father and son retail entrepreneurs, Christopher Edwards and Christopher Edwards Senior.

They were the original founders of former high street retailer, Poundworld Retail Limited before it was sold to American private equity conglomerate, TPG Capital in 2014. 

Many of the former Poundworld staff who lost their jobs when the old Poundworld shop went into administration in 2018 have been given new employment at the new One Below superstore.

Managing director Christopher Edwards said: “We’re excited to launch a One Below super store in Bradford. We will have the UK’s biggest range of items for £1 or under, sold under one roof.

"We’re particularly excited about our massive selection of Halloween and partyware – it’s ideal for anyone planning a celebration.”
