A POUNDLAND store opening in the Angel Place Shopping Centre in Bridgwater will create 30 jobs.

Roger Smith, Angel Place centre manager, said: “We are delighted to announce Poundland will be opening in the centre.

“Work has begun on the refit of the unit and the new Poundland store is set to open at the beginning of December in time for Christmas trade.

"This is great not only for the centre but also for shoppers giving them a larger retail offering at Angel Place.”
