Harborough District Commercial Services Ltd (HDCS) (Harborough District Council’s Local Authority Trading company) is set to welcome a British discount variety retailer to Market Harborough.

Poundland will be opening a new store soon in a town centre building owned by HDCS.

The retailer will move into a vacant unit at 10 The Commons, which up until recently was occupied by B&M.

Norman Proudfoot, Director of Harborough District Commercial Services, said: “Poundland is a welcome addition to this vital retail space in the centre of Market Harborough and will help to increase the footfall in an important part of the town centre.”

Cllr King, on behalf of Harborough District Commercial Services Ltd (HDCS) shareholders, said: “This is excellent news for the town centre and a real economic boost for the high street and the wider Harborough district. Poundland will bring another shopping experience for our residents and visitors, as well as more job opportunities. It’s a signal of investor confidence from the retail sector and all helps to build an even more vibrant economy in the district.”

Harborough District Commercial Services Ltd (HDCS) is wholly owned by Harborough District Council.
