Wasn't the one that was on Queensway an independent called 'Poundstop' with another Branch in Bramhall in "The Square",

The one's above may be the 'large' corporate ones.

For some reason i always come out of a 'pound shop' with stuff i didn't go in for :shock:

Pound Stop at Davenport as well.
People LEAVING Poynton to go shopping..…? :o :shock:

With all this concrete jungle construction going on it’s somewhat amusingly refreshing… :lol:

'Poundstop' do have another branch in Bramhall Precinct where you have to pay to park.
Personally I like the one on the A6 in Great Moor, near the junction with Cherry tree road. I think it's called Yu and Me?

Shame it went. Useful shop with all sorts of odds and sods at reasonable prices. I'm told the problem was caused by not being able to renew the lease on reasonable terms. As a result, been empty with no rent coming in for months!

I agree this was an excellent shop a sad loss , I was told it was down to the cost of the renewal of the lease coupled with the fear of the opening of Aldi who sell a lot of the same products at similar prices to pound shops.

VMeldrew is right. Shop empty with no rent coming in.

Weavers, the fruit & veg shop on the same parade moved about 2 years ago because of the rent and are now operating very successfully on Pepper Road in Hazel Grove. Their old premises on Queensgate still lie empty.

Greedy landlords need to take a big reality check.

The problem isn't confined to shop landlords.

[offtopic]Numerous pubs run by large pubcos have closed after a landlord left because of a large proposed rent increase, and the pubco couldn't then find a suitable landlord to replace him. A really sad case which I've mentioned before is the Jodrell Arms in Whaley Bridge. Run successfully for many years by Jackie Bond, cricketer and umpire, he left after a proposed large rent hike. Several successors failed to make a go of the place, which finally closed years ago. Plans were submitted 7 years ago to convert it into a gastrohotel, but the work was never completed.[/offtopic]
