Poundland in Chatham has undergone a top-to-bottom refurbishment.

The store, inside the Pentagon Centre, has received a refreshed look with new signage, flooring and lighting.

It now also offers a much larger range of baby and children’s clothing, homeware, chilled and frozen food.

The Chatham store is one of 150 in the UK and Ireland being given a major makeover by the end of August.

The project, known as Project Evo, will mean that almost one in five of Poundland’s stores will have been refreshed once completed.

Earlier this month the discount retailer announced plans to introduce 2,000 new product lines across its estate of more than 850 stores.

Alan Smallman, Poundland’s director of property services, said: “Project Evo represents a significant investment in a substantial number of stores to make them brilliant places to shop and work.

“Over the past five years we’ve transformed our offer for customers, adding extensive ranges of clothing, homewares, chilled and frozen food.

“We’re now embarking on a programme that will show off those ranges in a modern and bright environment that’s easy to shop, navigate and checkout.”
